QUICK GUIDE: Services - Costs - Extras - Pros & Cons

WoolworthsMobile

What services does Woolworths Mobile offer?

The prepaid plans that Woolworths Mobile provides are supplied on parts of Telstra’s 4G and 3G networks. This is a slightly smaller nationwide footprint than Telstra’s "full" 4G service, and it’s also capped at slower download and upload rates. All plans are sold SIM-only on a prepaid 30 day basis; if you want a handset bundled on Woolworths Mobile you’ll have to look at its 24-month contract plans.

How much does Woolworths Mobile cost?

The base line pricing for Woolworths Mobile monthly prepaid plans is either $30 or $45 per recharge with unlimited national calls and texts and either 3GB or 8GB of included data. There is also an online-only, recharge only $15 recharge tier that comes with $250 worth of calls, unlimited texts and 250MB of data. On that tier, calls are priced at 90c per minute plus a 40c flagfall.

The complicating factor with Woolworths Mobile prepaid plan recharges is that it offers a 10% discount for Woolworths Reward card holders, bringing the respective prices for a monthly recharge down to $13.50, $27 and $40.50 respectively. If you’re at all keen on Woolworths Mobile there’s no reason not to get a free Rewards card and save yourself a little cash each month.

What extras does Woolworths Mobile offer?

As with most prepaid SIM-only plans the number of extras on offer for Woolworths Mobile customers is a little thin on the ground. If you recharge at the $30 or $45 tier within your expiry period, however, any unused data will accumulate into the following month. You can cascade data through multiple months if you’re not using it this way, up to a maximum of 15GB of stored data quota.

Pros

  • Discounts for Woolworths Reward card holdersIf you already do your supermarket shop at Woolworths, the allure of even cheaper plans is a big one.
  • Data rolloverRollover provisions aren’t common in the prepaid world, especially when it comes to data. Realistically if you’re always rolling data over you’re probably spending too much on a monthly basis, but it does give you flexibility with your prepaid data at least.

Cons

  • Speed limited 4GTelstra doesn’t open up the full 4G pipe for its wholesale MVNO customers, including Woolworths Mobile. As such, if you were transferring from a full Telstra SIM to Woolies, you might notice a bit of a speed dip, especially for downloads.
