iPrimus aims to please with affordable plans and the full range of options.
What does iPrimus offer?
iPrimus offers a number of mobile plans that use the Optus 4G network to help you find the limits you need without paying extra for a plan you don’t want. These are SIM-only plans, so you can keep the same phone and keep your number. It's also easy to make the switch if the iPrimus plans suit your needs.
If you choose to sign up with iPrimus, there are no activation fees and each plan comes with unlimited calls and texts to standard Australian mobiles, landlines, 13/1300 numbers and voicemail services. Plans are available on month-to-month, 12-month or 24-month contracts.
How much does iPrimus mobile cost?
There are three plans available with different data limits. These is a 1.5GB plan for $20/month, a 3GB plan for $30/month and a 10GB plan for $50/month.
Excess usage charges will apply if you go over the limits of your plan. You will be charged $12/GB, which is slightly higher than the $10/GB many other providers charge. If you opt to sign up for a 12- or 24-month contract, an early termination fee of $55 will also apply if you decide to leave before your contract period has ended.
What extras does iPrimus offer?
You can travel with your iPrimus number and get competitive international call rates as well as international roaming services. iPrimus also offers broadband plans, Fetch Internet TV streaming subscriptions and home phone connections.
What excess charges could I face on these plans?
iPrimus's mobile plans are simple to understand and come with unlimited standard calls and texts to national phone and mobile numbers. International calls aren't included in your monthly allowance and iPrimus will charge you extra for these. You can see the full range of international call rates for iPrimus plans on the iPrimus website.
If you happen to exceed your monthly data allowance, you'll be charged at a flat rate of $12/GB.
Receiving a paper bill will set you back $2.50 each month, while paying your account via a method other than direct debit will see an additional $2.95 monthly fee added to your bill.
If you choose to sign up for a 12- or 24-month contract, then breaking that contract will incur a $55 fee. iPrimus does offer month-to-month plans as standard with no set-up fee, so you should avoid long-term contracts.
