CMobile review: Why choose it?

While CMobile’s Red plans aren’t the best value around, its Blue plans are competitive at certain price points if you’re looking for almost any quantity of data. On top of this, it has the following:

  • Choice of network. Customers can pick between Vodafone’s or Telstra’s mobile networks when buying a plan with CMobile.
  • International inclusions. Some of CMobile’s more expensive Blue plans have unlimited international calls to 10 countries.
  • Handsets. CMobile has a small number of basic, unlocked handsets available for low prices in its shop.
  • Roaming. You can unlock your plan for use overseas, but be aware that roaming rates can be extremely high so check your other options or use a local SIM when travelling.

Pros

  • Huge range. CMobile has an incredible range of plans, with 16 SIM only options to choose from, hitting almost any data amount you could want.
  • Network choice. Very few providers let you pick between two networks. With CMobile, you can choose between Telstra and Vodafone.

Cons

  • Poor value on most expensive Red plan. While most of CMobile's plan offerings are about average compared to other providers, its 20GB Red plan is priced higher than other plans offering a similar data limit, which are usually around $25-30.

CMobile network coverage

CMobile’s Blue plans use the Telstra wholesale network, which reaches 98.5% of Australians. The Red plans rely upon Vodafone’s network, which reaches 22 million Australians.
