Bendigo Bank Telco offers a range of simple SIM-only plans on a postpaid basis.
What services does Bendigo Bank Telco offer?
Bendigo Bank Telco uses Optus’ 4G network for the provisioning of its telecommunications services. Plans are all sold on a month to month postpaid basis as SIM-only services. This means you’ll have to own your own unlocked handset to use Bendigo Bank Telco’s services, but you can switch away with only a month’s payments to make at any given time.
How much does Bendigo Bank Telco cost?
Bendigo Bank Telco offers four primary SIM-only plans: Extra Lite, Lite, Medium+2GB and Large. Pricing runs to $19.95 for the Extra Lite plan, $29.95 for the Lite plan, $34.95 for the Medium+2GB and $49.95 for the Large plan.
The Lite, Medium+2GB and Large plans all include unlimited standard national calls and texts. On the Extra Lite plan, 200 minutes are included as standard to Australian mobile numbers , fixed lines, voicemail retrieval and 13/1300 numbers. Additional calls are then charged at 22c for a 2 minute call, but texts are unlimited. The Extra Lite plan offers 1GB of data, the Lite plan 2GB, the Medium+2GB plan has 5GB and the Large plan comes with 10GB. Extra data usage is charged at $10/GB.
What extras does Bendigo Bank Telco offer?
On all but the Extra Lite plan, a quantity of calling credit is given for international calls. The Lite plan has $50 worth of calls per month, while the Medium+2GB and Large plans offer $300 and $500 worth of calls respectively. Quite how that equates out in terms of calling minutes will vary depending on the destination you’re calling.
Other than that, as with most simple SIM-only plans, the only other feature of note is that all of Bendigo Bank Telco’s plans are offered on a month to month basis, so you can easily transfer out if you find a better deal or wish to switch carriers for some other reason.
