It's hard to deny that SpinTel's plans are extremely competitive, with affordable pricing for the amount of data it offers.
Alongside Aussie Broadband, SpinTel is one of the only smaller providers selling plans with 5G access (outside of Telstra, Optus and Vodafone), powered by the Optus 5G network.
Thanks to its 6-month sign-up discount, SpinTel's 200GB 5G plan comes up $10 cheaper than Optus per month.
But after this promo period, Optus actually comes out on top – offering the same data for the same price as SpinTel but with extra plan features like international calls, Optus Sport access and data sharing.
SpinTel could be right for you if:
However, SpinTel does have 1 particular thing to watch out for:
SpinTel's cheapest plan is fantastic value, costing $2.59 per GB. Similar plans average around $19 per GB.
The other 2 plans average $0.86 per GB, which holds up well against a benchmark of $1 per GB. They're even better value if you factor in the 6-month discounts.
SpinTel only has 2 options for 5G plans: $40 for 80GB or $65 for 200GB.
Both are excellent value at an average of $0.41 per GB. With 5G speeds you have a good chance of actually using that much data in a month.
SpinTel's main support channel is via its call centre, but there are a couple other ways you could try to contact it:
Unfortunately, SpinTel doesn't offer any other features on its mobile plans besides the standard text, calls and data.
If you're looking for a plan that has some handy extra features, you can read on to see what other competitors have on offer.

If 5G isn't your main concern, amaysim offers affordable mobile plans with handy features like unlimited data banking thrown in too.
Optus offers 5G on all its postpaid plans which stack up very well against SpinTel. You'll also get access to features like Optus Sport, international calls and data sharing.
If the Optus network isn't doing it for you, Boost Mobile is the only smaller provider that offers full Telstra 4G coverage which covers 99.5% of the population.

What if I want to keep my current phone number?
Easy. During the checkout process, choose the option for transferring your current number. SpinTel will handle the rest of the transfer process somewhere within 15 minutes to 24 hours.
If your current number is under someone else's name (a parent or partner), it might be a little trickier. Check our guide on how to transfer ownership of your mobile number.
It'll take you less than 30 minutes to switch to a cheaper mobile plan.
It's another win for those relying on the Optus mobile network.

To 5G or not to 5G?
5G mobile plans without big T's prices – yes, please!
The Samsung Galaxy A53 is an entirely adequate phone, but it doesn’t compare well against other phones in its price class – or even cheaper options like the Galaxy A33 5G.
Plus a whole range of other offers with Optus.
