Winner: Best Long Life SIM

Woolworths Prepaid Long Expiry 84GB $150 365 Days

This long expiry plan is good value for those who don't use their phone a lot. The 365 day prepaid plan offers 7GB a month, and a low monthly rate paid upfront. Users also get 10% off groceries at Woolworths stores.

You may know Woolworths best as a grocery chain, but it has returned to the mobile market with a vengeance, offering a full suite of prepaid and SIM only plans. It is even one of the few MVNOs to sell cutting-edge phones on a plan.

Overall, Woolworths Mobile provides a good option somewhere between the big three providers that dominate the market and the host of relatively-unheard-of smaller companies with plans of their own.

Top features:
  • Phone handsets available on a plan.
  • No excess usage bill shock.
  • Grocery discounts included.

Woolworths Mobile review: Why choose them?

Woolworths may be primarily a grocery store chain, but its mobile offerings aren't too shabby and it's even one of the few providers outside of the big three to sell new handsets on a plan. Since it doesn't have to maintain network infrastructure, it can charge less for its plans and offer them at fairly competitive prices.

Woolworths Mobile plans come with the following features:

  • Grocery discount. Customers on any plan will get 10% off their first shop at a Woolworths store on the second weekend of the month, with a maximum saving of $50.
  • Zero bill shock. Even on postpaid plans, you won't be charged automatically for extra data when you hit your limit. Instead, your data will be cut off and you'll have the option of purchasing an extra 1GB for $10.
  • Data bank. Postpaid plans enjoy data rollover up to 100GB so long as they stay up to date with their payments. 30-day expiry prepaid plans will get rollover up to 200GB so long as they recharge before the expiry date.

If you're still unsure about whether Woolworths Mobile is the right option for you, we've broken down the pros and cons of joining them to help with your decision.


  • Smartphone plans. Unlike most smaller providers, you can get the latest smartphones on a plan from Woolworths Mobile. This way, you can avoid the big three and their premium prices.
  • Cheaper plans. Because Woolworths Mobile simply rents existing infrastructure from Telstra, it can afford to charge you less for comparable plans.
  • Zero bill shock. Woolworths Mobile is one of the rare providers that won't automatically charge you for more data on a postpaid plan, leaving the choice up to you.


  • Contracts. There are no options for month-to-month SIM only postpaid plans, only 12-month lock-in contracts.
  • Lack of distinction. Usually postpaid plans (especially on a contract) offer better value than similar prepaid options. There's little to no difference between Woolworths' prepaid and postpaid offerings.

Woolworths Mobile network coverage

Woolworths Mobile uses the wholesale Telstra network, which reaches 98.8% of the population. It's only likely to offer worse coverage than the regular Telstra network in a few regional or rural areas.
