TeleChoice review: Our verdict

TeleChoice offers a good range of prepaid and postpaid plans suited to low, medium and high data users. Its prices become more favourable on plans with higher data limits.

Here are some reasons why you might enjoy TeleChoice:

  • Up to 500GB of data banking available on most plans.
  • Uses parts of Telstra's 3G, 4G and 5G network
  • Easily get your SIM online or purchase it from a participating TeleChoice authorised retailer

That said, TeleChoice has a few things to watch out for:

  • International roaming is only available in some countries if you have a postpaid plan. It's also limited to just calls and SMS. You'll need to call TeleChoice to activate roaming before you head overseas.

Value for money

TeleChoice's prepaid and SIM only plans offer some decent value to customers, especially if you were to choose one of the larger plans. The provider has the added bonus its Prepaid 5G plans offering strong value for money, as long as you have a 5G compatible device.
  • Good to know: Besides its 5GB plan, the rest of TeleChoice's plans average out to a dollar-per-data value of $1.46 per 1GB. This is above the benchmark of $1 per 1GB.
TeleChoice offers 2 types of prepaid plans: Its regular prepaid plans last for 28 days, and long expiry plans last for 180 days.

Coverage

If you're in need of wide coverage, TeleChoice is a great option:

    • You should get good coverage in metro areas, but may notice a slight drop in reception in some rural and regional areas

Does TeleChoice have 5G?
