Internode offers very cheap prices for its data inclusions thanks to its 50% off sign-up discount.
Unfortunately, its plans become considerably worse value after the promotional 6-month period. It's a good idea to set a reminder if you think you'd like to switch later.
If you're looking for bundled deals, you could be better off with iiNet. It offers bonus data if you're already an iiNet broadband customer.
Internode is a solid provider if you:
Although the plans are packed with data, you might be less thrilled if you like your plans to have special features:
Internode has some of the cheapest plans in the Finder database when you take into account its 50% sign-up discount.
Instead of recharging every 28 or 30 days like most prepaid plans, Internode's plans last a full month. This leads to exactly 12 recharges a year.
That means you'll save 1 recharge per year which is equivalent to a month's worth of your mobile plan.
Internode runs on the Vodafone 4G mobile network, which should be accessible for most metro customers.
If you need to get in touch with Internode, there are a couple of options:
Internode only has 1 extra feature available on just 1 of its mobile plans:
You get 100 international call minutes on the Extra Large prepaid plan that you can use to call selected countries.
This isn't available on any other Internode plans.
Although Internode's plans are great during their promotional period it also has strong competition.
For better value:
iiNet and Internode have the exact same plans. But iiNet has wider support options (such as 24/7 tech support) and some Internet bundling bonuses.
For more features:
ALDImobile is a little more expensive than Internode. In return, you'll get continuous data rollover from month to month plus included calls to 15 countries.
For more choices:
Moose discounts last a full year compared to the 6 months you get with Internode. You also get access to the wider Optus 4G network and Australian customer support.
Unfortunately, you can't sign up to Internode through Finder right now. You'll need to visit Internode's website at www.internode.on.net to choose and buy your plan. Or you can compare more mobile plans from 47 other providers on Finder.
What if I want to keep my current phone number?
You can let Internode know you'd like to keep your current mobile plan during checkout. While Internode says new numbers will activate within 2 hours, it gives no timeframe for porting over your existing number.
If your current number is under someone else's name (a parent or partner), it might be trickier. Check our guide on how to transfer ownership of your mobile number.
