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

WoolworthsMobile

What services does Woolworths Mobile offer?

Woolworths Mobile provides its telecommunications services on parts of Telstra’s 4G networks. What this means in practical terms is that it’s speed limited compared to the "full" Telstra network, as well as having a marginally smaller national footprint, although you do have to get relatively remote to fall outside the nexus of population areas and coverage.

In contract terms, all of Woolworths Mobile’s offerings include a bundled Android smartphone over 24 months; its SIM-only offerings are only provided on a prepaid basis.

How much does Woolworths Mobile cost?

Woolworths Mobile prices its plans at three different tiers depending on the quantity of data and calls required. At the lowest plan tier, which costs $35 outright you get $1000 worth of calls, unlimited texts and 1GB of data. Calls are priced at 90c per minute plus a 40c flagfall.

The mid-range and top tier plans include unlimited standard national calls and texts and either 3G or 8GB of data for $50 or $70 respectively excluding any handset repayments that may apply. Depending on your choice of handset these may not affect the plan pricing at all, or bump it upwards.

What extras does Woolworths Mobile offer?

On contract terms, the big additional hook for Woolworths Mobile customers is the inclusion of Woolworths gift cards with each phone contract. The precise value of card you’ll get can vary depending on seasonal promotional specials, but usually follows the pattern that the higher-tier plans get cards with more value than the lower tier ones, as you might expect.

Pros

  • Range of phones at all price pointsDon’t want handset repayments? The lower-end Samsung phones and most of the Oppo range that Samsung offers only want the base level contract payment, which means you’re paying no more for the phone.
  • 4G connectivityOne of the biggest drawbacks with Telstra-based MVNOs used to be the slow and limited 3G-only coverage. That’s no longer an issue for Woolworths Mobile customers, because while you don’t get the whole Telstra 4G network, you get enough of it for most purposes.
  • Bonus reward cardsOne of the biggest drawbacks with Telstra-based MVNOs used to be the slow and limited 3G-only coverage. That’s no longer an issue for Woolworths Mobile customers, because while you don’t get the whole Telstra 4G network, you get enough of it for most purposes.

Cons

  • Not a good fit for really remote usersThe "parts" of Telstra’s 3G/4G network that Woolworths Mobile has access to might not suit if you’re notably remote.
