Exetel review: Why choose Exetel?

Exetel's SIM only plans offer good value for lower data ranges, though if you're looking for more than 18GB monthly, you'll have to choose a different provider.

  • International inclusions. The more expensive plans come with various amounts of international call credit (up to $500). Different rates apply depending on what country you're calling or texting.
  • Spend control function. If you want, you can specify a limit to how much can be spent on extra data every month, meaning you won't pay for more data if you don't want to.



  • Spend control limit. Specify a $0 limit on extra data spend and never get charged for excess usage.
  • Decent value. Exetel's basic plans are competitive with others in the MVNO market.


  • Limited calls on 1GB.The 1GB for $9.99 plan only allows for 200 minutes of national calls monthly.
  • Charged in advance.Exetel requires payment ahead of the month, rather than on a postpaid basis.

Exetel uses the Optus 4G network, which covers over 97% of the population.

How to switch to Exetel?

Switching to Exetel is a fairly simple process.

  1. Make sure you have an unlocked phone ready to put a SIM in since Exetel doesn't offer phones with plans.
  2. Purchase the plan you want online, which will come with its own SIM.
  3. Activate your SIM once it arrives. If you want to keep your own number, let Exetel know at checkout or activation and it will arrange the transfer with your previous provider.
  4. Your SIM should be activated and your new service ready to go in a few hours to a day.
