      Please read the OP. There are two prices in the title. One for return, and one for new Groupon buyers.

        Sorry to bother you.

    Just bought 6 before , great for my substitute instead of nbn. Telstra sims get me 100mb p sec downloads in my area compared to Kogan at 40 mb p sec

      Not really sure why you got downvoted. As someone who's been in NBN Limbo for a month (as of today) with both NBN and Telstra pointing fingers at each other going "It's THEIR fault", I will use any and every means to get online. After picking up an unlocked NightHawk M1 off FB Marketplace recently, I'm buying every damn discount SIM package that I can get. I used to use Belong SIMs and just refer myself with a new account to get the @20 credit each side, but it's far more economical to just pickup the large data "on sale" prepaid SIM deals like these.

      Legally there's a 5 active SIM per user limit in Australia (to stop weird telemarketing/farming/phishing things I guess), but that's fine because I obviously use them consecutively. Once one is burned out I whack in the next. If providers sellers want to sell "Hey, 90% discount ! Bulk data ! Deliver to your door ! No contract !" SIMs then they can't be surprised when people sign up for more than the allotted per-customer amount, and I'm pretty damn sure that "per customer" limits have no legal standing. It's no difference than my mum getting some vouchers and going through the checkout twice with a "max two per customer" bread deal, or handing me the voucher and saying "Hey, I want more of these. Take this money and go buy me two more of them".

      In the exact same way, I am picking up two of these for my mother because she also uses long life prepaid data in her 4G hotspot as my parents do a lot of traveling. I may be buying all of these things on the same credit card but they are still FOR different people, just as I'm sure Calmerancer is probably doing. Two for me and two for mum. That gives us both 6 months of solid data in our hotspots. Or, if our NBN doesn't get turned on (the 5/1mbit 4G backup just doesn't cut it, sorry) then we can just burn through them for home data.

      Either way.. No one's ripping anyone off. I'm just buying a bunch of these on behalf of family members so that they don't have to "line up" to get them. No need for anyone to hate on people for doing this.

      • +2 votes

        That’s right. I gots family and each member has a groupon account so I buy on behalf of them and we all use the data when they need to. Just like family does the shopping and buys food for me. But hey, downvote ya fools ;) but also hey maybe I shoulda wrote “we” or “our family bought”
        Not to mention broadband per month use to cost $30-50 for us until the nbn started upping their prices. My last 3 bills were $79 from Aussie broadband. If I have 6 sims running I save $158 per quarter.
        Not to mention when I cancelled Aussie bb I was astounded about the music/message playing in the background. They said something like we are sorry if our name sounds or is racist but we picked that name in 2007 and we can’t change that… I was gob smacked, perhaps trying to keep customers or sth to do with the election is to why it was like that, idk. Hopefully I heard them wrong.

          As someone who has lived overseas and seen poor countries in SE Asia roll out phenomonal 4G networks to hundreds of millions of people with ease, it is funny to see Australia first make claims about "going all fibre" and offering "gigabit speeds", only to deliberately cripple their network from both a techonological and sales standpoint. Coming from somewhere where all FTTP plans are symmetric, it's hilarious to see Australia deliberately imposing the "Oh, upload bandwidth is extremely limited" condition on every product. And since NBN is, if you exclude these mobile broadband plans, the only network you can get, the whole country is basically being told "Hey… you are NOT content creators. Don't stream. Don't upload. Don't VPN. Don't do any uploading shit".

          Why ? It doesn't cost them any more if people upload instead of download. If someone wants to stream high def video, they can't. If someone wants to use remote desktop work or they want to sync files, they can't. Not for any technical reason or because it would cost anyone more. Just because NBNCo decided "You shouldn't do that". I can go to Vietnam and get a 25/25 connection for $5 a month or a 60/60 for $30 a month and stream like a mofo. I'd have to pay a fortune to do that in Australia and I couldn't even get 60mbit upstream because it's just been decided "That's not what we do here".

          Australia's internet habits are being artificially curbed by deliberate technological limitations that have no actual financial impact on the companies that offer the services. It's just that someone high up has decided to shape everyone's usage in a particular way. It's not that the carriers can't afford it. It's not the whole "geography of Australia" or "How far it is to run an costly undersea cable". Countries like Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam .. they're just as far from America as we are. Yes, they tend to pool their resources and thereby share the cost of undersea links, but there's no reason Australia can't do that too. Is there some reason the AAG (Asia America Gateway) doesn't continue on to Australia ? Not really.

          There's a million things wrong with the internet in Australia and it's pointless for me to try to cover them all in forum comment. I only bring up this one point because I find it funny the way Australia pretends that upload bandwidth is such a precious commodity that is "only for business people". HAhaha, piss off. One of the main reasons I switch over to a 4G connection is because it's the only way I can Game Stream to friends, use my Nvidia Shielf for remote gaming, and because then I can upload content I create to Youtube. I sort of look at Australia's NBN and go "Uhh, what's the problem guys ? It's the same 800mb video whether I upload it at 100mbit or at 5mbit. It doesn't matter if you shape me. I'm still going to have to upload 800gb of data". It's like Australia's response is "Yeah, well don't do that".

          LOL. 4G is great in Australia. We are always pioneers in the rollout of fast mobile technologies. We're a country to look up to when it comes to being the first to roll out real high speed mobile technologies. But then we either make them unaffordable or we cripple them.

          NBNCo's message is "Ok, you sort of have broadband. Your downloads are a bit faster now". But the new high speed world isn't about "slightly faster downloads". It's about enabling new technologies. New ways of doing things. New things in general. It's about being content creators, streaming not just Netflix, but 4k video games as well.. not just in one direction but in both.

          NBNCo isn't just crippling Australia's internet. They're crippling Australian's concept of what the internet is for and what it can do. It reminds me of the expression on Ex-NBN CEO Quigley's face when in the parlimentary inquiry regarding NBN, one of the panel asked something akin to "But at home in my household my kids can stream Netflix and browse the web just fine. Why do we need the internet to be faster ?" and Quigley just sort of looks pained and grits his teeth and tries to explain that it's not about what you can do today. It's about what you can do tomoorow.

          Australia is constantly champing at the bit while someone pulls the reigns and goes "whoooah girl… not too fast. That's not how we play this game. We play catch-up, because it lets us reap the most cash". And that's what it comes down to. You go see the broadband networks they've built across Asia and you look back at Australia like "Really ? Who are you kidding ?". Sure. NBNCo plans may be "Good enough for the average person", but that means that anyone who is an above average user… not in terms of how much they download, but in terms of wanting to do bigger things with their internet.. they're just not given any options. The whole system is setup to make cash by structuring everyone's usage in a certain way, and now that it's the only game in town, basically it's like putting everyone in a sort of time bubble and going "Just stick with this stuff. Don't try anything new. Standard Def streaming is just fine. You don't need any of that new stuff".

          I just feel so sorry for that hypothetical kid living on the outskirts of Townsville who wants to be a mad Twitch streamer but just can't do it because he's stuck on some shitty FTTN connection that can only get 8mbit upstream, and there's literally no possibility of another company coming along and offering something better because there's no competition allowed other than reselling. To someone like that it would feel like things are never going to get better for him, and they basically aren't. That theoretical kid will be an adult with kids of his own by the time that technology that he wants to use today is finally available. While the rest of the world will already have already been doing it for years… even the poor kids in SE Asia.

          If I can't game stream my Steam collection on my 2015 Nvidia Shield on 2017 NBN then there's only one way to put it….

          NBN promised a network for Tomorrow but built a network for Yesterday.

          Bring on the 4/5G ! Its your only way out.

            youre right though

          • +4 votes

            @Pawz:

            Not for any technical reason or because it would cost anyone more.

            There is actually a technical reason why FTTP is not symmetric. It's because we are splitting the signal from one fibre across 16 to 32 premises, as part of the 2.4 GPON system.

            That means that at the exchange, each fibre has one laser, continuously pushing out data at 2.4Gbits per second. Every one of those 16 to 32 premises receives that, everyone receives everyone else's data, except that it's all encrypted and you can only decrypt the data intended for you.

            But for the uplink data, it's different. You can't have 16 to 32 lasers all transmitting simultaneously back to the exchange, they all have to take turns. Which means they have to wait for their turn, then turn on the laser, adjust the output power, transmit the synchronizing sequence, identify the modem, and then transmit the data. And you have to leave gaps between one laser turning off and the next laser turning on, in case one of the modem's timing is a little bit early or late.

            If every house had a single fibre running all the way back to the exchange, then you can have symmetric data. But that's not the system we have, it would make the NBN significantly more expensive than it already is, and all politicians are facing complaints that it's already too expensive.

            There are also other ways to achieve symmetric data, but they are all more expensive than the 2.4GPON system that the NBN has started with.

            Contrary to popular belief, the original NBN design was designed to incorporate new faster systems as they were needed. Spare fibres were laid in every cable bundle, which could accommodate a new system running in parallel with the 2.4GPON system, and then customers could be gradually migrated over if they wanted the higher speeds. 10GPON exists now in some countries, and NG-PON2 (16x faster than 2.4GPON) will become mainstream in the near future.

        I say this every time it gets brought up, but there's no active SIM limit in Australia.

        It's perfectly legal to have more than 5 concurrent services, and that's why the ACMA has extra ID checking requirements for SIM purchases in those circumstances despite credit cards being used (of course the first financial transaction is often during activation these days, so the requirements are "re-interpreted" by telcos). With no accessible database of active services apparently in place, and no secure and economical way of verifying physical resemblance to ID portraits, online SIM providers rely on truth telling and a clause in their terms and conditions.

        Whether we've triggered Federal Police checks thanks to these SIM deals is another matter. If a guy roams around on his scooter selling oregano, parsley and rosemary in unmarked bags to young budding chefs then the SIMs might work against him. "NBN replacement" might go down better than "free burritos" in court.

          Hehehe funny comment by PeterPeterPumpkin there.

          I'm not bothered if I've been flagged for having activated 12 SIMs this year. The carriers may insist that there's a 5 SIM limit in Australia, but I'm not using all 12 at once, and as Peter said, it's not an actual law (if anyone can cite an actual federal law for this, I'd love to see).

          If we're breaking some Terms of Service thing by burning through promotional SIMs, so be it. If the providers want to crack down, then they can. It's up to them. We're not committing fraud or anything. I'll accept whatever consequences there are for breaking the TOS of a carrier by activating too many SIMs. I'm just trying to get online. I'm not doing anything illegal with the connections. I just wanna play games, watch TV.. the usual stuff. The stuff that is currently not possible for me on my broken-ass NBN connection.

          Regular people don't do this stuff. They don't hunt down the best deal, and use that for a while and then switch over to the other best deal. Regular people just choose a phone and broadband provider and stick with them for decades, regardless of whether it sucks or not because changing all the time is a headache.

          But for people who need something more.. hey they're gonna sniff out the best deal they can get anywhere and switch at the drop of a hat. They're the lost people who aren't being served properly by Australia's current internet packages. The SIM burners and the modem aggregators aren't criminals. They're just people who are desperate for something that serves their needs. Eventually the Telcos will see what's happening and make offerings that are a reasonable compromise and which people want to buy.

          Yeah, like many my fixed line broadband is just a completely broken disaster and I'm forced to use 4G. I don't want to limit my internet usage to 2009 habits. I want to keep my 2019 habits. I want to create content and have it uploaded quick. When I dump 500gb of raw video footage on my system, I want to sync it to my Google Drive and One Drive accounts without it taking a month to do so. I want to backup, stream, share, connect and do all that cool stuff. You know.. the stuff they advertised on TV as what we can expect, instead of the stuff we actually got.

    • Although your service must be activated by 30 Jun 2019, the SIM card itself is able to be activated after that date. However, it must be activated within 365 days of purchase (it cannot be guaranteed that it will work after this time

      The SIM card itself can be activated long after the voucher expiry. You cannot activate with this voucher after the stated expiry date.

          yeah its pretty unclear until you go to activate. Basically if you dont activate before 30 june the deal is dead. The 365 day they are referring to is the blank $2 sim card they send you in the mail which is what you can buy at supermarkets and phone shops.

          So people thinking about buying this deal and activating 6 months down the track… you have been warned.

      I bought two of these 20 days ago and the sims just arrived to my mailbox (Sydney metro) few minutes ago (Within 21 days as advised by groupon :)). Look like they only printed the SIM after you ordered :).
      So if anyone need the SIM urgently, it won't be a case. It should be fine if you have a spare kogan sim.
      If order on kogan website, the sim normally arrives in a week in a thick grey envelope. The sim from groupon deal came in normal white envelop, however.

      Old Kogan sim only needs the activation code, if you purchased the renew option.

      Expired now, but these sims do come with a new/different mobile number. When activating though, you have the choice to either use that number, or port your existing (other telco) mobile number over. It varies the amount of time it takes the telcos to achieve this. I found Vodafone to Kogan Mobile was extremely fast.

      Ps. Dont forget when signing back into your account, to turn OFF automatic recharge, or you will pay the "normal" amount for recharge when the 90 days (etc.) has expired.
