Pennytel's SIM-only plans explained

Pennytel offers a broad range of SIM-only mobile plans powered by parts of the Telstra 3G and 4G networks. These plans operate on a month-to-month contract, with billing occurring on a postpaid basis. All include unlimited standard talk and text along with a monthly allotment of data, plus the higher-tier plans pack in unlimited international calls to select countries.

How does Pennytel compare?

  • Budget plans pack a lot of value, especially compared to other Telstra-powered telcos
  • Unlimited international calls on L Plus and XL plans is a big boon for overseas callers
  • Telstra network means wider coverage in rural areas of the country

Why should you consider Pennytel?

Pennytel's proposition rests on simplicity and the allure of getting onto Telstra's 4G network without the higher costs typically associated with Telstra's own in-house plans. If that has appeal to you it's worth considering, but if you're happy enough on other networks, it's worth looking at your options before signing up.
