GoTalk review: Why choose it?

To keep it short and sweet, none of GoTalk's plans offer particularly good value for money when compared to other providers, and it's recommended you compare so you can potentially find a better deal.

Pros

  • Vodafone network. The Vodafone network is extensive, reaching roughly 22 million Australians, meaning you've got decent coverage to go with your plan.

Cons

  • No 4G data. All of the data on GoTalk's plans only run at 3G speeds.
  • Poor plan value. You're paying at least $10 per 1GB on GoTalk's prepaid plans.
  • High data excess charges. You have to pay 5c/MB past your limit, which equates to $50 for each additional 1GB of data.

GoTalk's network coverage

GoTalk uses the Vodafone mobile network for service, which reaches around 22 million Australians.

GoTalk frequently asked questions

How do I switch to GoTalk?

Switching to GoTalk is a fairly simple process.

  1. Make sure you already have an unlocked phone to put a SIM in. GoTalk 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 GoTalk 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.
