Bendigo Telco review: Why choose it?

You can get a decent bit of data with a Bendigo Telco plan, although its plans won't be the cheapest on the market. On the other hand, its slightly higher prices are balanced with its community initiatives. It has a community enterprise program where you can choose to have one of its community partners receive a portion of your monthly bill, if you're interested in supporting such things.

Plans also come with a couple of extra features. On top of the included data and calls, you get:

  • International inclusions. The more expensive Bendigo Telco plans have international call credit automatically included which you can use for overseas communications. Rates depend on where you're calling.
  • Roaming. If you want, you can turn on roaming for your number by contacting Bendigo Telco before leaving. Keep in mind that roaming rates can be incredibly expensive and you might be better off with a local SIM or other solution.


Pros

  • Unlimited calls. Bendigo Telco's mobile plans all have unlimited national calls and text.
  • Small local business. If you enjoy supporting small local businesses, you should consider going with Bendigo Telco.

Cons

  • Low value. Bendigo Telco's plans offer comparatively little data for their price when compared to other providers.
  • No extras. Those looking for additional features in their plans will have to look somewhere else.

Bendigo Telco network coverage

Bendigo Telco uses the Optus 3G and 4G networks, which cover around 98.5% of Australians.
