Lebara review: Why choose them?

Lebara certainly has some interesting phone plans, with a lot of different choices for customers who are looking for a good value prepaid plan. They also have the following:

  • International inclusions. Lebara's prepaid plans come with free international calls to between 20 and 45 countries. They also include a certain amount of international credit for talk and text to countries that aren't on the list.
  • Data banking. Unused data gets rolled over between months, up to a maximum of 200GB.
  • Data gifting. So long as you know someone else with a Lebara mobile plan, you can share up to 10GB of your own data with them. You can do this up to five times per month.
  • Roaming plans. Lebara has dedicated roaming plans for use in other countries. Either 500MB of data, 15 minutes of standard talk and 50 texts for $15 or 2GB of data, 90 minutes of talk and 200 SMS for $50.
  • Data packs. When you need some extra data to tide you over until the next recharge, you can buy packs from Lebara. They range from $5 for 1GB all the way up to 10GB for $25.

Pros

  • Data banking. It's always nice to be able to carry over unused data to the following month, and 200GB is a generous bank.
  • Prepaid value. If you buy half a year or a year's worth of data ahead of time, you can save a bit on costs.

Cons

  • Bonus data. A lot of Lebara's data on its plans is the result of limited promotional deals. Its plans lose value when this goes away.

Lebara network coverage

Lebara uses the Vodafone 4G network, which covers around 22 million Australians.
