Is Mate right for me?

  • What does Mate offer? Mate offers SIM-only mobile plans on parts of the Telstra 3G and 4G networks. These plans are also available when bundled with Mate's broadband plans.
  • Product highlights: Telstra's expansive network coverage and fewer bills to worry about.
  • Watch out for: Mate only has access to parts of Telstra's mobile network, so coverage may not be as complete as it would with Telstra's own mobile plans.

Mate SIM-only plans

Mate's SIM-only plans explained

Mate's SIM-only plans were recently only available when bundled with Mate's fixed-line broadband plans. Now, both new and existing customers can get Mate's standalone mobile plans.

How does Mate compare?

Mate's mobile offerings are now available as standalone plans. New customers have the option to subscribe to Mate's mobile plans and get a broadband plan with another telco. On the other hand, existing customers who previously had their mobile plans bundled with the telco's broadband service can get the advantage of having their Internet and mobile service covered by one bill.

You'll want to consider the competition before signing up to Mate's SIM-only plans. While they offer decent value, there are quite a few plans from other telcos that offer both larger data caps and lower prices. You don't have to miss out on the increased coverage and speeds of the Telstra network either as many of those telcos also use Telstra's mobile infrastructure.

Why should you consider Mate?

The foremost reason to consider Mate is convenience. By bundling a Mate mobile plan with one of its broadband plans, you only have to worry about one bill instead of two. Similarly, you only have to deal with a single company if you run into any issues with your Internet or mobile service.

Mate also has the advantage of using Telstra's 3G and 4G networks. As the largest mobile network in the country, Telstra's infrastructure is often faster and more widely available than other Australian mobile networks.
