Highlights:

  • Data rollover up to 200GB
  • International inclusions on some plans

How do Gomo's mobile plans work?

Gomo has three basic mobile plans available:

  • 4GB for $15. Includes unlimited talk and text in Australia. 30 day expiry period.
  • 18GB for $25. Includes unlimited talk and text in Australia, plus unlimited standard international calls to 15 countries.
  • 30GB for $35. Includes unlimited talk and text in Australia, plus unlimited standard international calls to 15 countries.

The above data limits are the original inclusions on Gomo's plan and don't reflect any promotions currently running.

If you run out of data, your Internet access will be cut off, but you can still send and receive calls and texts. If you want, you can purchase an extra 5GB for $5.

Gomo's mobile plans are classified as a subscription service. Functionally, they're identical to a normal prepaid plan, in that you pay upfront and have 30 days until your next renewal. The only difference is that your service will always auto renew until you cancel.

Gomo mobile review

Gomo hasn't existed long enough to develop much of a track record, but it has opened up its initial offering of a single mobile plan into three separate ones. With various data allowances now available, most customers should be able to find one that suits their needs.

Infrequent mobile users might not find Gomo too attractive, so if you're looking to use less than 4GB a month, make sure you compare mobile plans to find the best deal around.

Everything is conducted through the Gomo app, meaning all your support, plan management and so forth is done in the one place. While this makes the app extremely handy, some users may prefer to have a hotline to call in order to talk to a representative about any issues they're facing. Unfortunately, this isn't an option with Gomo as it functions completely online.

With Gomo, you'll get these features with your mobile plan:

Is it worth signing up with Gomo? We ask our utilities expert and writer, Sam Baran

Photo of Sam BaranGomo's best offering is its 4GB for $15 plan, providing great value for customers with low data needs.

The other two Gomo plans are just average, coming in about mid-range in value but not measuring up to the likes of amaysim or ALDImobile. Gomo also only offers up to 30GB when it's not running a promotion, which should be more than enough for most people (that's 1GB to use each month). But if you truly need a huge amount of data, you'll have to go elsewhere.

Finally, you can only subscribe to Gomo or get support through its app, so beware if you're not a fan of mandatory apps or have an outdated phone. Gomo operates completely online, so look elsewhere if you're more comfortable having a provider you can contact over the phone or in-store.

How does Gomo compare?

To see how Gomo measures up against other providers, we've put its 18GB subscription plan next to similar plans from Optus (its parent network) and amaysim (another provider using the Optus network).

Please note, we've only used the original plan features and prices in the table below. No promotional offers were taken into account.

Gomo compares pretty well against Optus, but not so well against amaysim. After the first three recharges Gomo is strictly better value than Optus thanks to its data being a tad cheaper, but amaysim outshines it in the long run.

That being said, amaysim doesn't offer any data rollover, which might be handy for you if you have irregular data usage patterns, for example using more in one month and less in another month). It also runs on a 28-day expiry period, so over the course of a year, you'll need to make one additional payment more than you would with Gomo.

Do you get international calls with Gomo?

Yes, both of Gomo's more expensive plans come with unlimited standard calls to 15 destinations: Canada, mainland China, France, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand, United Kingdom and the United States.*

International SMS and MMS are not included with this, and there is no option for international roaming with Gomo.
