Moose Mobile provides a range of high-value 3G and 4G SIM-only plans designed to help you save on your mobile bill.
Moose Mobile provides SIM-only postpaid mobile plans running on the Optus 3G and Optus 4G networks with a strong focus on month-to-month plans. That means that there's no particular lock-in to the carrier if you wish to switch away, or for that matter jump up or down pricing tiers.

Moose Mobile 3G plans
If you crave more data than Moose Mobile's 4G plans provide, you can opt for one of its 3G plans instead. These operate on the Optus 3G network only, meaning that data throughput speeds are lower, but actual data quotas are much higher. Here's the current rundown of available Moose Mobile 3G SIM-only plans:
- Moose Mobile 49: 3G only, unlimited calls, unlimited SMS/MMS, 30GB data $49
- Moose Mobile 78: 3G only, unlimited calls, unlimited SMS/MMS, 90GB data $78

Why should you consider Moose Mobile?
Moose Mobile's plans are simple and flexible, with no lock-in beyond your current contract month, and decent data inclusions to offer superior value. There's no real additional extras with its plans, so if you crave streaming inclusions, international call packs or data-quota-free activities, it may not be the best match, but if you're after simple value it's certainly worth considering and comparing.
