Boost's biggest selling point is no doubt its full access to the Telstra 4G network without the big T's prices.
The way we see it, its plans are great for all ages – whether you're 18, 40 or older – for a few reasons:
Boost's positives outweigh its negatives, but you should still keep in mind that:
Boost has a few different ways for you to get in touch all 7 days of the week. You'll be able to:
While Boost's plans don't come with all the bells and whistles that you'd expect from Telstra and Optus, it does offer a few stand-out features.
This is great for people who would like a data bank for future use. However, keep in mind that the data you save up with Boost is only available within your next recharge.
Make unlimited international calls to 20 countries and get 300 free minutes to 30 selected destinations plus 300 texts to any country. All 28-day plans except the $20 offer include these. This is a good option for people with families abroad.
We think Boost is a decent choice for a prepaid provider, but if you're still on fence, you might want to consider a few other strong providers:
If you like what you see with Boost, amaysim runs on the Optus 4G network and offers similar plans and deals.
ALDImobile doesn't get full Telstra 4G coverage but still runs on the Telstra network and covers 98.8% of Australians. Its plans are also cheaper than Boost's.
If Boost's plans don't offer enough data for you, consider Circles.Life for affordable, higher-data mobile plans.

finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of banks, insurers and product issuers. We value our editorial independence and follow editorial guidelines.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product or service.
Please note that the information published on our site should not be construed as personal advice and does not consider your personal needs and circumstances. While our site will provide you with factual information and general advice to help you make better decisions, it isn't a substitute for professional advice. You should consider whether the products or services featured on our site are appropriate for your needs. If you're unsure about anything, seek professional advice before you apply for any product or commit to any plan.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or 'Advertisement' are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment when you click on those buttons or apply for a product. You can learn more about how we make money here.
When products are grouped in a table or list, the order in which they are initially sorted may be influenced by a range of factors including price, fees and discounts; commercial partnerships; product features; and brand popularity. We provide tools so you can sort and filter these lists to highlight features that matter to you.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad-based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan, we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
