    Decent deal if not calling/texting international.

    The few times boost was at $135 was better but still, good stopgap.

    Does anyone know if you can buy buy the prepaid sim card instore? Or is it online only?

    • +1 vote

      The 365-day long expiry plan is only available online.

    •  

      You have to have a prepaid sim card to start with, or an existing account. It's confusing.

      I bought a $30 pre-paid card, when registering, I choose this option.

      •  

        Ok, so did you get a $30 discount off the $150 plan? Or did you have to pay the full $150 even though you paid $30 already?

    Not 100% like for like.
    Same carrier(Telstra) but Boost is the only MNVO that has access to the entire Telstra network.

    •  

      Good point, but a small difference for most people, compared to the advantage over optus/voda. Which still may not be huge.

      Belong is still cheaper, if you get a discounted starter pack and switch to $10 plan after first month.

        See the coverage maps
        I'd much prefer the extra coverage regionally personally. But I guess those that spend their whole life in the city wouldn't care.

        •  

          Do any of the sellers of Telstra wholesale get full 4Gx speeds? If they do then those could be better value in cities than Boost. Boost service is throttled speeds, but full tower coverage.

          I was wondering if Belong for example was Boost in reverse…
          Belong - limited Telstra tower footprint, but 100% speed.
          Boost - 100% Telstra tower footprint, throttled speed.

          ?????

          •  

            @Tuba: While it's stated that Boost can throttle speeds, I have never seen it and the general consensus on other forums is it hardly happens.

            •  

              @cv05: I have Boost, but Ive never clocked the speeds. Question remains though. Even if throttling is only when necessary, if Belong has full speed, then they cant throttle that.

            •  

              @cv05: it usually only happens in crowded environments - think at a stadium event and a friend is trying to contact you. Otherwise each cell/grid is usually not reaching it's capacity.

            •  

              @cv05: I find Boost hopeless on my morning/evening commute, must be throttled.

          •  

            @Tuba: I'm currently with Belong, not unlimited speed, caps or at 100Mbps…which is far more than you'll ever need on a mobile anyway. Coverage is pretty good, even in some remote areas. It's just the places where Optus and Vodafone have no coverage for hours that they seem to curtail the wholesales reach (but Telstra Wholesale is likely to be faster in regional places than Optus or Voda).

      Ditto, Kogan uses Telstra network but not the entirety and I'm not sure if Woolworths is exactly the same. For commute travel in inner city, internet was practically inaccessible. I changed provider to Boost and have all coverage on my commute now. Way much better, feels like 4g, unlike when I was on Kogan.

    •  

      I use Aldi and thought it was basically the entire Telstra network. How can we find out if it uses the whole thing or not?

    This is a great plan slightly better than boosts $150 plan (80GB) data if you don't care about international calls.

    Boost can regularly be bought for $135 = $1.6875/GB, this one is $1.786/GB. Buy a Boost recharge for anything under $142.86 and you're ahead

    As well as the better coverage with Boost

  •  

    The 10% off woolworths shopping is nice. But do you need to recharge the sim more than once before you can qualify for the 10% off shopping?

    Or because it is a 365 long expiry sim. We only need to wait 60days from 1st activation? No need to recharge for the 10% off Woolworths shopping offer?

    • +1 vote

      As long as your service is active. That means one charge gives you 12 times (months) of discounts.

      • +1 vote

        Wrong. You have to wait 60 days after activation until you can redeem the first 10% off shop.
        This occurs on the 2nd weekend in the month, so you may only 9 or 10 shops of 10% off.

    Please note: 2000 rewards points = $10, so 150 points = 75 cents ! Not much of a selling point :)

    Found this with Optus. 120GB for $150, 365 days expiry…

    International minutes?

  •  

    Just confirming that I'm reading this right; the 84GB is available all at once? So not 6 2/3GB per month? Thinking of this for my 11yo but given she has no concept of managing data can see if this is the case she'll use 84GB in 3 days then have nothing for the next 363 days.

    With Boost we can watch AFL live data free. Can we with Woolies?

  • +2 votes

    Something to be mindful of is that they don't have international roaming, meaning you can't receive texts for 2FA when overseas. Not sure if Woolworths has changed it since but this was the case for me early last year.

    Boost on the other hand does have this capability.

  •  

    This deal is amazing if you can save $10 every month(assuming you have a shopping basket of $100). Virtually this plan is only $30.

  •  

    Only if this included free international calls like Boost mobile. That's the only dearest thingie missing.

  • +4 votes

    Things to consider that may/may not be important to you:
    Woolworths doesn't have VOLTE or Wifi Calling, whereas Boost does
    Woolworths coverage is limited/wholesale Telstra network, Boost is the full Telstra network

  •  

    Woolworth has data rollover, even for this long validity one. I dont think Boost has rollover. I have around 18 GB left on my Boot 80GB 1 Year and will be finishing in 2 weeks. I need to get 18 GB finished in 2 weeks now …

  •  

    Why I can't purchase it with the woolworths egift card?! There is more 5% off!:(

  •  

    Boost would be better?

  •  

    Decided to go with this one over Boost as we are Woolies shoppers anyway. The 10% deal will knock $90 off the price as a minimum. Thanks OP!

    One thing to be aware of is, if you are already a WW Mobile customer with data in your databank, you will lose it by recharging any of their long expiry options.

  • +5 votes

    Just be aware these cretins require you to be opted in to marketing preference for 14 days prior to redemption of the 10% of shop. I just got caught out with this and it was hidden in the terms and conditions of the same offer on their car insurance.

    •  

      Ah that explains why I no longer get 10% offers with my car insurance. Time to sign up to the spam again.

    •  

      What are marketing preference? Tracking?

      • +3 votes

        You give them permissions to SMS and email you as much as they would like to, about anything at any time. This usually means your clicks & opens are tracked and they will target you with display, search & social media.

        Suggest you create unique email addresses so you mess with their analytics team who will be trying to create a single customer view of your data in order to get a return on the discount they are providing you. By using unique gmail accounts you MAY stop quantium (their analytics division) using some of the data tools against you.

    optus deal is way better. $150 for 120Gb online only

    •  

      No international calls included though

    •  

      Only for new customers though. My kids were on this so I moved their numbers to Boost. Sadly there was no 135 dollar deal last week. Next year I can flip them back to Optus or whatever. The Woolies plan would have been good as we shop there each week but the Boost coverage is a winner when we go out of town for camping and skiing.

    Can you buy this with wish egift card?

  • +1 vote

    Belong Mobile is better than this with double data in the first month and $20 referral credit.

    If you can buy a $40 starter sim for $15 or $20 you can stay for 12 months and make a plan for around $140 130GB. Also any data at the end of 12 months won't be wiped and you don't have to pay the whole amount up front.

  •  

    The 180 days prepaid is better value if you don't use much data, and it is available in store for 60 dollars.

    Presumably you can use egift card and still eligible for the 10%off shop promotion?
