Spintel review: Why choose it?

SpinTel's plans have competitive prices. The option to cap your data so you don't ever go over is a nice addition. On top of basic plan inclusions, they have:

  • Data capping. You can opt in for data capping on any of SpinTel's plans. This means you will never be charged automatically for extra usage. Instead, your service will be cut off unless you add on extra data manually.
  • Roaming. You can activate international roaming by contacting SpinTel. Be aware that roaming rates are very high compared to regular domestic charges and you're probably better off picking up a local SIM.


Pros

  • Good rates. SpinTel's plans may not offer huge wads of data, but the plans it does have are fairly competitive.
  • Auto cap. The data auto-cap feature is useful to avoid excess data charges.

Cons

  • No extras. SpinTel doesn't have any fancy features on its plans. Look elsewhere if you desire them.

SpinTel network coverage

SpinTel uses the Optus 3G and 4G networks for its mobile plans, which cover around 98.5% of the population.

SpinTel also uses the Optus 5G network for some of its plans. As 5G is still being rolled out in Australia, you'll need to double check whether your area is covered.

SpinTel: FAQs

How do I switch to SpinTel?

Switching to SpinTel is a fairly simple process:
  1. Make sure you have an unlocked phone already to put a SIM in. SpinTel doesn't offer phones with plans.
  2. Purchase the plan you want online, which will come with its own SIM.
  3. Activate your SIM once it arrives. If you want to keep your own number, let SpinTel know at checkout or activation and it will arrange the transfer with your previous provider.
  4. Your SIM should be activated and your new service ready to go in a few hours to a day.
