QUICK GUIDE: Services - Costs - Extras - Pros & Cons

What services does iinet Mobile offer?

Launched from a West Australian garage back in 1993, iinet was a pioneer in the home broadband space, offering dial-up internet to West Australians. In the following decades, the company grew phenomenally, becoming one of the largest broadband providers in Australia. Today, the company is owned by TPG, and supports its comprehensive list of broadband offerings with a range of 4G mobile SIM-only plans that use the Optus 4G Plus network.

How much does iinet mobile cost?

iinet's SIM-only plans start at $19.99 per month, and range up to $49.99 per month. As with many MVNO providers, the main difference in price offerings is the amount of bundled data in a plan, although the cheapest plan doesn't include unlimited talk and text like the $29.99, $39.99 and $49.99 tiers.

For customers looking for international call value, the $39.99 and $49.99 price tiers also include $300 worth of international call value.

What extras does iinet mobile offer?

iinet built its reputation as a value broadband provider through initiatives like its "Freezone" and unmetered access to streaming services like Netflix and ABC iview. Unfortunately, there are no such extras offered with iinet's mobile plans.


  • 4G Capability. iinet has full access to the Optus 4G Plus network for comprehensive LTE coverage.
  • No lock in contracts. All of iinet's plans are billed monthly with no extended contracts, so if you're unhappy you can switch providers easily.


  • SIM cost. You'll be hit with a once off $10 SIM card fee for joining iinet mobile, which is steep compared to the number of MVNO's that offer the SIM for free.

      Hi Patrick,

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