iiNet Mobile

iiNet might not be as well known in the mobile market as it is in the broadband space, but it does have a fair number of SIM only plans to choose from. It was bought out by TPG Telecom in 2015 but continues to operate separately.

Top features:

  • Month-to-month plans with no locked-in contract.
  • Known for the award-winning customer service.
  • Some international inclusions.
iiNet mobile plans are not currently available via Finder. You can visit their website at www.iinet.net.au for more information or compare alternative options available below.

iiNet review: Why choose iiNet?

Unless you're after iiNet's award-winning customer service, iiNet's mobile plan offerings don't offer the greatest value. As the plans go up in price, the inclusions seem to get lower in value. iiNet also offers the following:

  • International inclusions. The cheaper plans bundle international and national call credit into one that you can spend for either. The more expensive plans have some dedicated international call credit.
  • Roaming. You'll be able to activate international roaming on your plan if you're going overseas by contacting iiNet. Remember that international roaming rates are much higher than standard charges and other options like buying a local SIM could be cheaper.

 

Pros

  • Customer service. iiNet is known for its award-winning customer service.

Cons

  • Poor plan value. iiNet's plans don't give much data for their price and get less competitive as they get more expensive.
  • Limited domestic minutes. The two cheapest options limit your domestic calls and texts to $550 per month.
  • $10 SIM charge. You'll have to pay an additional $10 fee to get your SIM card shipped to you for activation.

iiNet network coverage

iiNet uses the Optus 4G network for its mobile plans, covering around 98.5% of Australians.

iiNet Mobile: FAQ

How do I switch to iiNet?

Switching to iiNet is a fairly simple process.

  1. Make sure you have an unlocked phone already to put a SIM in. iiNet doesn't offer phones with plans.
  2. Purchase the plan you want online, which will come with its own SIM, though you'll be charged $10 for its delivery.
  3. Activate your SIM once it arrives. If you want to keep your own number, let iiNet 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.

      Hi Patrick,

      The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S7 are both outstanding handsets. Are you looking to stick to Samsung?

      Thanks,
      Brodie
