Mate Communicate's SIM-only plans explained

Unlike most telcos, Mate Communicate doesn't offer standalone mobile plans. Instead, its SIM-only plans are only available when bundled with Mate Communicate's fixed-line broadband plans. Unless you're an existing Mate Communicate broadband customer or looking to become one, Mate Communicate's mobile plans aren't for you.

How does Mate Communicate compare?

Since Mate Communicate's mobile plans are only available bundled with the telco's broadband service, let's assume you're either an existing Mate Communicate customer or you're already sold on signing up for its broadband service.

Combining your Internet and mobile service into one bill can be handy, but you'll want to consider the competition before signing up to Mate Communicate'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 Communicate?

The foremost reason to consider Mate Communicate is convenience. By bundling a Mate Communicate 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 Communicate 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.
