Kogan Mobile Data Upgrades on Selected Prepaid Mobile Plans (Small Now 2GB, Large Now 16GB, XL Now 23GB) (New and Exist. Cust)

4520

Got a text saying My 16GB has increased to 23GB.

We’ve beefed up the data in all SMALL, LARGE and EXTRA LARGE prepaid plans, at no extra cost.

Here are the new data inclusions.

Kogan Mobile Plan Tier Before Upgraded To
Small 1.5GB 2GB
Medium 6GB 6GB (No change)
Large 11GB 16GB
Xtra Large 16GB 23GB

Users on Medium plan will miss out. The data upgrades will apply to 30 Day, 90 Day and 1 Year Plans. There is no data rollover.

The increases to data will also benefit new customers, not just pre-existing ones.

See here for the current December deals to save up to 40% off on 365 day plans

      Can't see this in my kogan account. Do you see

      Yeah, they were flogging off discounted 365 day plans around this time last year, so I suppose it's smart to get in early before people think about churning.

      •  

        too little too late!

        I've already churned to Optus. If they could offer another ~$125 deal again then I'd consider it as it matches the price of amaysim etc (anything over 1GB data works fine for me!).

        •  

          Yeah its a bit of a hike to $153.
          Which Optus plan did you choose?

          I see Amaysim does a $10/28day unlimited talk/txt + 1gb

          @supabrudda:

          Over the next couple of months, I'm doing a bit of travel so I just got a $30 starter pack for $5 and activated it on the long life plan to keep my number alive.

          In January I'll switch to the $10 Amaysim plan as it seems like the only ~$10 service with roaming and no excess data charges.

          The pricing works out similar but the amaysim international services are better in my opinion.

          Kogan - 152/12 = $12.67 per month for 2GB, Unlimited Calls, Texts and additional data $15 per 2GB's (an extra $15 per month for Intl calls).

          Amaysim 10*13 = $130/12 = $10.83 per month for 1GB, Unlimited Calls, Texts, additional data $10 per GB and the ability to roam and make intl calls (billed per call from extra credit that lasts 365 days).

        •  

          didn't know Amaysims have $10 for unlimited Calls, 1GB is good enough but most important thing are Calls…i have few people and aware alot of people calls and Texts are requirements more than Net.

    •  

      I'd like to see how they would do it if it wasn't for the competition war. As you can see the Telco war is intensifying and Kogan was just a bit smarter.

    Not showing for any of my plans yet unfortunately

      I received a text message about the data increase from Kogan and it said it can take a few hours to show up in my account.

  •  

    Nothing against OP but would this be more suitable in the forums?

  • +3 votes

    wow, love you Kogan, and love you Telstra and Optus for bringing in competitions lol

  • +24 votes

    Credit to Kogan. One of the few telcos which looks after existing customers. I'm on the 365 day plan. Originally only 8GB now 16GB!

  • +2 votes

    Thought it'd be for the medium plan too. Anyone else got their data upped to 7gb after the free data we got on Kogan's birthday? However when I recharged it went back to 6gb :(

  • +5 votes

    The best deals are the ones where you don't need to do anything!
    Edit: Don't forget the 4.90 FOR 23G deal. Add it to the post to avoid deletion 😁

  •  

    Well nothing that I can see! But still a good move

    •  

      It is showing up now! Just got the message one minute ago and the game is afoot.
      Thank you op

    The last few times Kogan has increased previous customers allowances. Glad I've stuck with them. Was thinking I could do with a couple more gig. Can't recommend them enough

    • +5 votes

      For real. Started on 8GB 12 months ago and now i'm on 16GB. Twice the original data allowance. Glad i re-upped for another year just last week.

    I'm on medium 6 GB on 365 day plan . Looks like it's not included .

  •  

    Why would they skip only Medium plans ?

    • +1 vote

      The most data I have seen another carrier offer for $30 is 5GB, they probably think that they are safe sticking to 6GB.

      •  

        Optus 15gb for 30.

        • +1 vote

          yeah that is the one that i regretting now

        • +1 vote

          I should have said Prepaid, that is a 12 month contract, and there is a whole Whirlpool thread on how Optus can't get the billing right. Charging people $40 instead of $30, charging $15 for the EPL when it should be free etc.

          It is a good deal if you don't mind being locked in for a year and are prepared for Optus to screw up the billing.

        •  

          @Marrk: how is that optus a good deal? this kogan is just $20 for 16GB (365 days voucher, large)?

          we are not talking telstra so i think voda and optus are comparable.

        •  

          @dragonindespair: There are situations where the Optus deal could be more suitable for someone, whether that is because of not being able to afford the Kogan upfront cost, the EPL access or unmetered music and video streaming.

          Need to find the article, though a fairly significant amount of Australian's rely on their mobile as their sole internet connection. So something like unmetered Netflix could be a huge deal to these people, who otherwise couldn't use a streaming service.

        •  

          @Marrk: alright. not sure if $254 is high amount but yeah could be. unmetered music is kind of dud as you need premium spotify anyway. no video streaming afaik, yes optus sport

        •  

          @Marrk:
          yeahm, heard similar reports from my end too. I have a 365 kogan pack: bloody brilliant. havent had any issues and this data upgrade ensures I will purchase same again next year.

      These medium "plans" work as anchor to push you to get higher plan as difference is not that much.

  • +2 votes

    so the large 365 days plan is $254.30 and we get 16GB, means roughly just $20.xx per month??

    WOW thats cheap! i regret getting the optus 15GB for $30 one year contract now……

    put price for each plan would be good

    im having trouble breathing,

    serious heart palpitations,

    the data increases and value for money is astonishing

    OMG!

    XMAS comes early

    Kogan is smashing it, well done boy from Belarus!

    2GB much appreciated, its very marginal even with min. surfing the net, so extra .5 all helps

  • +2 votes

    didnt see any increase on my existing line. Perhaps after renewal?

    edit: nvm - probably just hasnt propogated thru yet

    PLEASE NOTE: It may take up to several hours for the new data to be applied to your account.

    •  

      second that.I'm on the Large Prepaid plan and it's still showing as 11gb, guess it will take sometimes for the system to update

  • +6 votes

    Jesus what do I do with 23GB 😂

  •  

    dammit… just downgraded to 2x 6Gb plans when the 10x QFF bonus was on :/

    Anyone had any luck "exchanging" a voucher and paying the price difference??

    • +1 vote

      No personal experience but I've heard of other users asking for a refund when they purchased a new pack. This may work if the 365 day plans are going cheap.

      •  

        Thanks for that.

        Can confirm their support team are able to cancel the vouchers. For anyone wanting to do this:

        1) Go into the order with the voucher purchase
        2) Click on "Help Centre" below delivery details

      This plan is for new and existing customers.

      It replaces the deal currentfad posted a few months back.

      https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/328203

      We usually put the deals in the forums when

      1. The deal is only for existing customers
      2. The deal doesn't require any action to activate (i.e you get it automatically)

      In this instance, like Currentfad's deal and like other Aldi Mobile deals, it's something that new customers can benefit from as well.

    •  

      I think it belongs here especially since they are offering some big discounts on the 365 day plans now.

      This a very good deal, not sure why people whinge that this belongs to forum, if this is not posted as deal, I would not be aware of this offer. I'm currently with Voda paying $40/mo for only 12GB data. Thanks OP!

  •  

    Is there a reason why the medium plan customers miss out on this deal?

  •  

    I rarely use more than 2Gb on my medium plan already so I think I will renew on Small from now on.

    I sure hope what kogan is doing is sustainable.

  •  

    Cheapest plan of 2gig doesnt say much about international calls …apart from "stay in touch with family overseas"

    • +2 votes

      I don't think Kogan plans have intl minutes. That's the biggest negative, and hence the strength of Amaysim.

  • +2 votes

    In the year I signed up, my data allowance has increased from 12GB to 23GB a month without any action on my part. Was great value a year ago, and absolutely insane value now for $25.90/m.

  •  

    no sms yet, i hope it comes soon! I nearly finished my 11gb and still have 20 days left :')
