What is Gomo's mobile plan like?

Gomo's one mobile plan is a subscription service:

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

If you run out of data, you can purchase 5GB extra for $5 via the Gomo mobile app.

What's a subscription mobile plan?

Subscription plans are a pretty new type of mobile plan available for customers. It technically works like a prepaid plan - you pay for your usage upfront, and then have 30-days until your next renewal period. However, the difference is the auto-renewal function.

Just like a monthly magazine subscription, when you sign up with Gomo, you're subscribing to its service so at the end of each expiry period, your mobile plan renews automatically. Gomo lets you cancel your subscription at any time through its mobile app.

Gomo mobile review

Gomo hasn't existed long enough to develop a track record, so it's hard to judge it on much more than its plan's basic value. It's a bit better than average compared to many prepaid plans, but remember that if you want anything other than 18GB per month you'll have to go elsewhere.

Where Gomo really shines is with its current offer to buy 3 months, and get the next 3 months free. This essentially means that over a 6-month period, you're only paying $12.50 a month for 18GB of data which is actually a really great deal. Other similar prepaid plans that offer 18GB a month will cost you around $25 a month.

So is it worth signing up to Gomo? We ask our utilities expert and writer, Sam Baran

Photo of Sam BaranGomo's one and only plan is okay value, giving you a chunk of data at a decent rate.

Data rollover makes it more appealing, and the bonus 3 months free after 3 months with Gomo offer is a good incentive. However, Gomo lacks alternative plans for the moment, so consider a provider like ALDImobile or amaysim if you want a broader range of great value plans to choose from.

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can only subscribe to Gomo or get support through its app, so beware if you're not a fan of mandatory apps or have an outdated phone.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

How does Gomo compare?

To see how Gomo's mobile plan measures up against other providers, we've put it next to similar plans from Optus (its parent network) and amaysim (another MVNO on the Optus network).

As you can see, Gomo compares pretty well against Optus, but not so great against amaysim. After the first 3 recharges, Gomo is strictly better value than Optus, but amaysim outshines it by a wide margin.

When it comes to features, Gomo holds up fine for an MVNO, with data rollover being one of the best extras on a prepaid plan, since it gives you a lot of flexibility.

International calls with Gomo

Gomo's plan comes 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.
