Lycamobile's 28-day plans have some of the best international inclusions around.
If you aren't after international inclusions, you'll probably find the best value in its 2GB for $12 plan, which is the cheapest on the Telstra network.
Those looking for big data allowances will also be pleased as its 50GB plus plans are great bang for your buck.
Lycamobile holds a lot of positives:
But just be aware that:
Lycamobile's 2GB for $12 plan is the cheapest 28-day offer available on the Telstra network, and a great way to get wide coverage for a low price each month.
Those that are more regular mobile users may enjoy Lycamobile's higher data plans instead. These cost under $1 per GB, which is the benchmark you want to aim for.
Lycamobile's long expiry plans function more like long-term contract plans.
Rather than getting all your data at once, you pay a fee upfront, and then you'll receive monthly allotments of data for 6 or 12 months.
These plans are on par with its regular plans, which means you won't really save money for being locked in for a longer period.
Lycamobile has a 7-day plan offering 10GB for $10. It hits the benchmark of $1 per GB but since it only lasts a week, it may not suit your needs.
If you have a question and want to get in touch with the Lycamobile team, you can reach them between 9am–6pm AEST, Monday to Saturday:
Lycamobile focuses on delivering international inclusions but has a couple of other features too.
If you need to call other countries to stay in touch, Lycamobile has more generous inclusions than most.
You'll get unlimited calls to up to 53 countries, depending on your plan. Some plans also come with international call minutes to selected countries.
If you find your data falling short for some months, you can purchase quick top-ups that last till your next recharge.
Purchase anywhere from 1GB for $5 all the way up to 50GB for $50.
When someone signs up using a referral code you gave to them, you'll get $5 credit on your account.
Although Lycamobile performs well, there are some other providers you might want to consider too:
Another strong international option:
If you like Lycamobile's international inclusions, Lebara might be even better. It offers unlimited calls and texts to up to 64 countries, with other features like data banking and data gifting too.
For wider coverage:
Boost Mobile's plans come with full access to Telstra's 4G mobile network reaching 99.5% of the population, rather than the reduced wholesale version (98.8%).
For better long-expiry plans:
Kogan has huge amounts of data available with a 365-day expiry for quite reasonable prices. You also get to keep unused data from month-to-month.
Unfortunately, Lycamobile is not available via Finder. Instead, you'll need to head over to www.lycamobile.com.au and purchase the plan you're after there. Or you can continue comparing plans from 45 other providers on Finder.
What if I want to keep my current phone number?
Once you have your SIM, you can fill out the Port-In form on the website. Lycamobile advises it will take around 2.5 business hours for the transfer to complete.
If your current number is under someone else's name (a parent or a partner), it might involve some more steps. Check our guide on how to transfer ownership of your mobile number.
