Catch Connect is exactly what it promises on the tin: Simple, cheap mobile plans.
Following the cheap everything model of its parent company Catch.com.au, Catch's set of mobile plans delivers on value if you're not looking for any fancy plan features.
It has some of the best value 30-day prepaid plans on the market and equally great value across its longer expiry plans too.
Catch could be the right choice for you if you:
That said, there are a few things to consider before you sign up to Catch:
Catch Connect has 2 monthly plans, 4GB for $10 or 18GB for $15. Both of these represent great value for money.
While you want to aim for a benchmark of $1 per GB of data, this is hardly the case for lower data plans. Catch's 4GB plan actually makes it one of the best value entry mobile plans in our database.
Catch Connect has 1 plan with a 90-day expiry period and 2 that last for a year.
The 90-day expiry plan offers 20GB for $29 over 90 days, which is a great deal if you don't want to have to deal with recharges as often as its monthly plans.
If you use 10GB or less each month, Catch's 365-day plans will be worth it for you. Spreading the cost over a year, its long expiry plans will cost less than most equivalent monthly plans.
If you're having problems with your Catch Connect service or would like a question answered, you can reach out in the following ways:
Unfortunately, Catch doesn't offer any special features on its mobile plans.
This isn't necessarily a bad thing, especially if all you're after is calls, texts and data.

While Catch Connect is undeniably cheap, you might want to consider one of these other mobile providers if you're looking for a little bit more on your plan:
ALDImobile has affordable plans that also come with useful features, like data rollover and international call inclusions.
Catch has great deals, but offers a maximum of around 20GB per month. If you're looking for more data, check out Circles.Life and its budget-friendly 100GB and 160GB deals.
Boost Mobile is the only other provider that uses the full Telstra 4G network, reaching 99.5% of Australians. As a smaller provider, its prices are also cheaper than Telstra.
