CMobile mobile phone plans

CMobile offers budget-centric plans across both the Telstra and Vodafone networks.

Is CMobile right for me?

  • What does CMobile offer? CMobile offers two flavours of SIM-only mobile plans: Red plans and Blue plans. Red plans use the Vodafone 3G and 4G networks, while Blue plans use the Telstra 3G and 4G networks. This is the same structure CMobile uses for its mobile broadband plans.
  • Product highlights: No lock-in contracts, flexibility to choose between Vodafone and Telstra networks.
  • Watch out for: Both CMobile's Red and Blue plans are markedly more expensive than a lot of other options on the market. Be sure to compare them against plans from other Aussie telcos before signing up to ensure you get a good deal.

CMobile Red plans

CMobile's Red plans explained

CMobile's Red plans run on Vodafone's 3G and 4G networks, granting them coverage to 96% of the Australian population. Call and data inclusions range from bare-bones packages ideal for ultralight users right up to big data plans for those who like to stream on the go.

CMobile Blue plans

CMobile's Blue plans explained

For its Blue plans, CMobile uses parts of the Telstra 3G and 4G networks. This leads to increased coverage over its Red plans, with around 98.8% of the Australian population serviced by the network. That kind of coverage doesn't come cheap though, with CMobile's Blue plans costing quite a bit more per month than their equivalent Red plans.

Like the Red plans, CMobile's Blue plans operate on a month-to-month, postpaid payment schedule. Unlike the Red plans though, all Blue plans include unlimited standard talk and text.

How does CMobile compare?

  • Support for Telstra and Vodafone networks lets you choose the one that's best for you.
  • Both Red and Blue plans lack the value offered by many competing providers.
  • Red plans are only available with small data caps.

Since CMobile has two separate networks at its disposal, it's able to compete on both the low-cost front with its Red plans and on the coverage front with its Blue plans.

Why should you consider CMobile?

While CMobile's uncommon dual-network approach stands out from the pack, its actual plans aren't quite so noteworthy. Both its Vodafone-powered Red plans and its Telstra-fuelled Blue plans lag behind the competition in delivering value for money, though its Blue plans still ring in cheaper than Telstra's own equivalent plans – the caveat there, of course, is that Telstra's plans have full access to its network.

Nevertheless, if you're after the best deals for your dollar, you'll probably want to look elsewhere.
