Moose Mobile rolls out ultra-cheap $8 mobile plan
The no-frills plan is ideal for those with only basic mobile needs.
While there's no shortage of competition in the high-end mobile plan market these days, the same can't always be said of the cheaper end of the spectrum. The Brisbane-based SIM-only telco Moose Mobile wants to change that with its latest low-cost plan aimed at Aussies who need a mobile phone service but don't necessarily use it all that often.
Priced at $8 per month, the new plan comes with 200 minutes of standard national calls, unlimited texts to both national and international numbers plus 500MB of data. Like most SIM-only plans, it's available on a no-lock-in month-to-month contract, meaning you can cancel your service at any time without having to pay a hefty termination fee.
As an MVNO, Moose Mobile delivers its mobile phone service over Optus' 4G Plus network which boasts coverage to over 96% of the Australian population.
"We’ve offered high data plans from the start," said Moose Mobile CEO Dean Lwin, "but now there’s a little more flexibility on the other side of the spectrum for those customers who rarely use their phone and are looking to save a little cash as a result.
"This plan is great for younger and older Australians who are still learning the ropes, and who sparingly use the internet or make calls with their mobile phones."
