Moose Mobile rolls out ultra-cheap $8 mobile plan

Posted: 29 November 2017 11:53 am


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."

    I am looking for a talk only plan for my mother who is 87, and loves to talk. She does not want to text or google. She would also like to call relatives overseas.

      Hi Marilyn,

      Thanks for your enquiry. There aren’t a whole lot of Talk-only mobile plans available these days, but if you head on over to our comparison tool, you’ll find a number of cheap, low-data mobile plans that might suit your mother’s needs. All the plans listed on that page come with unlimited local and national calls every month, and Virgin Mobile’s plans also come with extra international call credit bundled in, too.

      If your mother also needs a phone to go with the plan, you can use the comparison tool on that page to compare handset plans, too.

      I hope this helps!
