    No VoLTE on Aldi, and coverage not as good as Boost. Good pricing strategy, right in the middle of the $150/80Gb 12 month and the $300/240Gb 12 month Boost prepaid plans.

    These 365 day phone plans are really gaining traction arent they?

    Boost is still king tho

    you are kidding. aldi went from 12gb to 15gb for the 365, so i went to boost. now they offer 160gb.
    they must have lost a lot.

      Dude, what part of $51 don't you understand?

      Boost is $150, Aldi is $99.

      Not everyone has their heads down on their phone all the time,

    Wow that is expensive deal

    Nothing, repeat nothing, beats the yearly $150 Boost deal for my needs. Volte plus very impressive wifi calling + full Telstra network coverage nailed it for me. The service hasn't missed a beat (yet). Wifi calling on an LG V30+ (Pie) and on my Samsung A50 (Pie) works a treat!

    ALDI is still expensive and slow to catch on. Been with Kogan 365 Medium plan (13GB pm) for ~$200 for 6 months now.

    • +1 vote

      agree. Catch can be cheaper when on sale. currently, $270 for 150GB, paid $115 for that with a voucher (was 80GB. but upgraded to 150GB no extra charge, just like Kogan did to me).

      Aldi is Telstra and Kogan is Vodafone. I'd prefer more signal than more data. Of course ymmv.

      •  

        Doesn't matter in Sydney and any other metro.. Unless your phone can accept more signal than any conventional phone.

        • +5 votes

          I am in Sydney. I switched from Optus to Kogan (Vodafone) last year… can’t wait for that 12 months prepaid to finish so I can switch somewhere…

          A number of places I visit regularly like shops (not underground parkings, normal shops) where Optus was Ok is either “no signal” with Kogan or data speed is so slow so I can’t get or send any photos from the shop.

          So yes, the coverage is there. It’s just not useful. :)

            @SickDmith: Wow didn't realise … Guess I am lucky as I'm not having any trouble with Kogan. This is my second 365 day plan. Originally started with 1 month followed by 3 month then first 365 day and then my current.

          •  

            @SickDmith: That varies, I get the opposite in southern Adelaide. It was getting to the stage where I'd be disabling the second [amaysim] SIM as the ' lost signal' alert at the rear of supermarkets ect from the optus signal were almost spelling it out in morse…._.

          •  

            @SickDmith: Interestingly, I have been having the opposite experience with Catch (Optus) and Kogan (Vodafone) in Sydney.
            Optus was absolutely useless in the shopping centres whilst Vodafone workes (even though it's not perfect).

          Im in Sydney…with voda you can't even get a 3g or 4g signal inside many supermarkets and shopping centres.

          Maybe ok for those who only rely on voice and sms.

            •  

              @bigbadboogieman: Yes, I've met many who are happy with voda and have been with them for years. I guess if your daily routine doesn't take you into any black spots stick with them!

        •  

          I'm in Brisbane (inner suburb) with Kogan, need to go outside to make a call but even that is patchy & internet so slow can barely use it most days

          •  

            @Helenn: Guess someone should tag someone associated with Kogan Mobile here so they can read these comments. Sure as hell feels like either Kogan is screwing it's customers over or Voda is screwing Kogan over… :)

              @bigbadboogieman: Tell you some of my experience

              I'm in Hornsby(Sydney), it's a relatively 'remote' area.

              When I'm using either Optus or Vodafone,

              1. I can't get a good signal, it will drop calls sometimes at the deeper room.
                2.During the busy time(weekend, mid-day etc.) testing in speedtest the speed rate would even drop lower than … maybe 50KB/s ?

              Yeah, as a real ozbargainer you must try these suppliers, see whether these would affect you.

              I'm still holding the amaysim and put another working no. on it.

              •  

                @yeb123: I work in Sydney CBD.. Rarely I do notice a blackspot but so far I have worked it out as usually when I am traveling around.. feels it has trouble switching between poles or something…. I switch on the airport mode and off again and get full reception. I always thought this was my phone acting up as I use a cheap phone.

        •  

          I'm with TPG (Vodafone) and regularly can't receive calls at home because of poor reception. Same with anyone on Vodafone in the area (neighbours) and any visitors.

          The 4g map says reception should be good, and generally is outdoors but indoors is trash.

          Been trying to get them to improve it for months, TPG has gotten to the point they suggest changing networks.

    •  

      I'm happy with my $99 365/15Gb ALDI. Not that I'd move to Voda or Optus without a large incentive but what comparative deals do you know of in the same price range?

  •  

    Both Boost and ALDI use the Telstra network. How can the coverage be different?

  • +4 votes

    I renewed my aldi $249 plan 2 days before Boost released their $150 plan. Lodged a ticket (months ago) with Aldi to see if they can do anything to beat that. In short they replied me 'no'… check my balance recently I found I have 100GB extra in my rollover data. Not sure what causing that but I won't complain.

    Unlike previous Aldi Super Packs which were available in store only, this Super Pack is available online only as per deal screenshot:

    On Sale 11 Sep - 11 Oct
    Available online only

    Here's the $249 1 Year Super Pack page (deal not active yet — on sale on 11 Sep)

    If you already on the Aldi Super Pack previously (equivalent pack) you can roll over any un-used data from the previous year.

    Is this 160gb for the year or per month?

  •  

    I'm guessing Aldi don't include unlimited calls to the Philippines like both boost offers do.

  • +2 votes

    I think $100 year plan with 15GB is still cheaper as you can buy two data add-on 70GB for $120. So, You will get (15+70+70) 115GB for $220 while $249 plan gives 160GB.
    Thus you pay $29 just for 5GB!

    Check your usage guys. I am on wifi most of the time so the $99 pack suited me well. Like how they have extra data packs. Might be worth going the cheaper route from the start then add your data packs when needed.

    •  

      I was wondering about the same as well, for light users this plan could be a good option.

    •  

      Do you have a link for $99 plan? I can't find it on their site.

      •  

        I can only see it in their app.

          Hey guys silly questions: could you buy the $5 sim and then recharge the $99 via the app?

          • +1 vote

            @fozzie: Maybe. I have an account with a $5 SIM and I just checked the recharge options. All 3 super packs now show up as options ($99, $249, $299), whereas before they didn't. It may be worth enquring with ALDImobile.
            Currently no. The $99 pack has to be bought in store for new customers.
            Existing Super Pack customers can recharge online.

              @1bug: Thanks 1bug, so were you a superpack subscriber? I have a friend that wants to move to Aldi for $99 so hoping she can just buy the $5 and then top up from inapp.

              • +1 vote

                @fozzie: No, never been a super pack customer on that account. Just had a $5 SIM starter pack.

                It's worth risking $5 to try it out … but do it before 11 October (when the $249 super pack deal expires).

          •  

            @fozzie: Update: The $99 and $299 recharge options have now been removed from my SIM Starter pack. Only the $249 recharge remains as part of the current promo.

    Can you see a historical monthly usage of your data (1/3/6 months) with Aldi, like you can through the Kogan Mobile app?

      Yep the app is quite polished. Also tax invoices.

        Cheers. Glad to hear it’s polished.

        It’s a first world problem but it frustrates the heck out of me that Kogan haven’t updated their iOS app for the iPhone X series. It’s still this small app in the middle of the screen with bars top and bottom, it’s horrible. Functional but horrible to look at.
