Catch Connect mobile plans

Australian retail giant Catch has thrown its hat into the telecommunications ring. See how its prepaid plans stack up right here.

After finding success in the online retail world with its initiative, Australian ecommerce organisation Catch Group has set its sights on a variety of other industries, the latest of which is mobile phone services.

Operating as Catch Connect, the young telco offers prepaid mobile services on 30-, 90- and 365-day plans. Delivered over Optus' 4G network, these plans all come with unlimited standard national talk and text along with data caps ranging from 3GB all the way up to 240GB.

Catch Connect 30-day prepaid plans

Catch Connect offers four 30-day prepaid plans. They are:

    • $15 plan, which includes 3GB of data
    • $25 plan, which includes 11GB of data
    • $35 plan, which includes 20GB of data
    • $49.90 plan, which includes 40GB of data

Catch Connect 90-day prepaid plans

Much like its 30-day plans, Catch Connect's 90-day prepaid plans come in four varieties:

  • $39 plan, which includes 8GB of data
  • $69 plan, which includes 35GB of data
  • $89 plan, which includes 54GB of data
  • $119 plan, which includes 102GB of data and 400 minutes to 32 countries

Catch Connect 365-day plans

For those looking to get the most out of their every dollar, Catch Connect offers long-term pre-paid plans that work out cheaper on a month-by-month basis than either its 30-day or 90-day plans. The caveat, of course, is that you need to pay a larger upfront cost to take advantage of the lower overall cost, and you lose the freedom to switch or cancel your plan whenever you want – unless you're happy with forfeiting the money you've already spent, that is.

Catch Connect extras

Alongside its standard prepaid plans, Catch Connect sells add-on packs with extra call and data inclusions.

For additional call credit to use on standard international calls and texts, international roaming and select premium phone services, Catch Connect offers $5, $10, $20 and $50 recharge options. International call and roaming rates vary from country to country, though standard international texts are fixed at 12c per message.

Any extra credit you add to your service will expire after 30 days, but if you top up with more credit before the 30 days are up, any unused credit from your previous recharge will roll over to the next 30 days, up to a maximum of $500.

How does Catch Connect compare?

Despite lacking the experience of many of its competitors, Catch Connect distinguishes itself as one of the most attractive prepaid mobile providers currently on the market.

Why should you consider Catch Connect?

Catch Connect has hit the ground running with its prepaid mobile plans. Whether you're looking for a quick 30-day fix or the added freedom of a 90-day expiry, few other mobile providers can match the raw value of Catch Connect. If cheap prepaid plans are what you're after, you won't do much better anywhere else.

It's also worth highlighting how useful Catch Connect's 90-day expiry plans can be. Since you can portion out your data use however you like over the three months, it's especially handy if your data needs aren't so predictable. For instance, you might barely touch your mobile data on a typical day but then burn through a couple of GB on a work trip or weekend away every couple of months. Rather than continuously switching between low-data and high-data 30-day caps, a more flexible 90-day cap could save you both time and money.

Catch Connect recharge options

Unlike most other prepaid mobile providers, Catch Connect does not sell prepaid top-up cards at retail. Instead, the only way to recharge your Catch Connect plan is via your account dashboard on the Catch Connect website. There you can either choose to have your plan recharge automatically when it expires by debiting your preferred payment method or recharge manually at your leisure.
