amaysim launches eSIM so you can switch mobile plans quicker


You can now stop waiting around for physical SIM cards to arrive in your mailbox when signing up to an amaysim mobile plan.

amaysim has launched embedded SIM card (eSIM) technology that can easily be downloaded on your phone within minutes.

This means you don't have to deal with the hassle of a physical SIM card delivery or head to the store to grab one.

You can also easily use multiple numbers on the same phone with eSIMs.

Both new and existing customers can switch to an eSIM and have the option to BYO their own number.

Is amaysim worth signing up to?

Lots of Australians have switched providers since the Optus cyber attack last month. Those looking to stay on the Optus 4G network could do well with amaysim, which offers the same 3G/4G coverage as Optus.

amaysim was also named Best Rated Mobile Plan Provider in the 2022 Finder Retail Awards.

It was rated highly for offering great bang for buck and overall customer satisfaction.

You can sign up to an exclusive deal via Finder where you get 55GB for only $9. This is a 28-day prepaid plan and the promo offer lasts on your first 6 renewals.

After the promotion period, the price and data revert back to $30 for 30GB.

With no lock-in contract, you have the option to cancel your plan if you don't want to pay more.

However, even the original plan stacks up well against our $1 for 1GB benchmark.

What else do I get with an amaysim plan?

amaysim keeps its plans simple. You get:

  • Access to the Optus network which reaches 98.5% of the Aussie population
  • Unlimited data banking (1 of 3 providers to offer this feature)
  • A highly rated mobile app to manage your plan

Which other mobile providers offer eSIM?

eSIM technology is still being rolled out across providers in Australia. Besides amaysim, some other providers boasting this feature include:

It's likely that more smaller mobile providers will hop on the eSIM bandwagon.

With the latest iPhone 14 launch, the US models were revealed to be eSIM-only, removing physical SIM card capability.

While this isn't a feature on the Australian iPhone 14 models yet, it's likely that Apple may consider doing it in the future once eSIMs become more widely available across the country.

Make switching mobile providers a breeze by learning if your current phone is eSIM compatible.
