Happy family

We're not owned by a provider

Unlike many other comparison services, we're independent, so we can partner with a broad range of brands.

It's 100% free (no fine print)

You won't need to enter your phone number or email to compare plans. Best of all, you'll pay the same as going directly to the brand.

Riding a rollercoaster

More than just comparison

We have thousands of guides (including ones about brands that we don't work with!) so you can be better informed and not just blindly compare on price.

    I will be located in Spain for about 3 months later this year and wanting to have internet access on my iPad and possible my MacBook. Can you provide advice on what might be the best options for me?

    Thanks,

      Hi John,

      Thank you for getting in touch with finder.

      It is best to get a local prepaid plan from Spain for the period that you’re staying in the said country. If you choose to use internet service from Australia, it might cost you enormous monthly bill for using your chosen provider’s international roaming service. You may check out this page to have an overview of mobile plans in Spain. You may seek mobile-data-sim-only plans to get internet service only for your iPad or MacBook.

      I hope this helps.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Jeni

    Hi Bob,

    Thank you for getting in touch with finder.

    Basically, to switch to NBN the subscriber needs to know first if NBN is available in their area, then they would choose the plan and provider that they would have their services with like Telstra, Optus, etc. You may learn more on how to switch to NBN on this page.

    Now, it is really difficult to say that it was really NBN who was calling you however you may choose to be registered under the “Do Not Call” list. It is a free service where consumers can securely register their home, mobile or fax numbers for free to reduce unsolicited telemarketing calls.

    I hope this helps.

    Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any other enquiries.

    Thank you and have a wonderful day!

    Cheers,
    Jeni

    I have just ordered some DVD’s from Amazon will they automatically send DVD’ that suit Australian players?

      ArnoldApril 2, 2018

      Hi Lynne,

      Thanks for your inquiry

      The answer to your questions will depend on a number of factors. Firstly, we should take note that DVDs are encoded with a regional code. The codes allow the distribution companies control over aspects of the release internationally, this includes content, price and release date. Some DVD players will play DVDs from all regions, but some may only play DVDs from the region where the player was bought. Australia is in Region 4.

      It would be good to confirm the regional codes of any DVD you buy online.

      Hope this information helps

      Cheers,
      Arnold

    To those asking about NBN, if I could get ADSL2+ back, I would in a heartbeat. The dropouts are insane.

      Hi Cc!

      It sounds to me you’re not satisfied with your NBN services. :(

      Have you talked to your provider about this? Maybe they need to check your cables?

      We wish you the best and hopefully that gets resolved with them soon!

      Hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      Jonathan
