Internode review: Why choose Internode?

Despite having options that would suit anyone who isn't looking for a crazy amount of data, Internode's plans aren't exactly the most competitive deals around. You can get the same amount of data that Internode offers for most of its plans for a cheaper price from other providers. That being said, on top of the basic inclusions, Internode will also throw in:

  • International inclusions on its $39.99 plan. You'll get 100 mins to use on international calls on Internode's $39.99 plan.


Pros

  • Customer service. Internode has won several awards for its customer service.
  • Decent plan value for the first 6 months. The prices you pay for the 6 months of your plan are pretty competitive compared to other deals available on the market for its data limits.

Cons

  • Poor plan value. None of Internode's plans offer very competitive rates for the data they provide.
  • Plan prices are only competitive for the first 6 months. While you do get bang for your buck when you sign up to Internode's mobile plans as a new customer, after the offer period ends, you'll go back to paying the original prices for the plans. Unfortunately, Internode's normal pricing makes their plans less competitive, but you could switch out after 6 months since the plans are prepaid.

Internode network coverage

Internode's services are run over the Vodafone 3G and 4G networks, which reach about 98.5% of the Australian population.

Internode: FAQs

How to switch to Internode?

Switching to Internode is a fairly simple process.

  1. Make sure you have an unlocked phone that's ready for a SIM. Internode doesn't offer phones with its plans.
  2. Purchase the plan you want online, which will come with its own SIM, though you'll have to pay a $10 fee for it to be delivered.
  3. Activate your SIM once it arrives. If you want to keep your own number, let Internode know at checkout or activation and it will arrange a number 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.
