      Depend on where you live I guess.
      I've used them last year and it has better indoor coverage than Boost

        Voda is best for me too. Depends on location i guess.

          Brisbane is typically very good on any Voda network; but as always, blackspots exist.

        Voda coverage is great compared to Optus and same as Telstra where I am, shame the extra 10gb isn’t given to existing customers too.

          I've found Telstra to be poor in the regional areas I've visited.

          •  

            @Caped Baldy: My understanding is Telstra is supposed to be better in regional areas. I never venture out of the city, so I wouldn’t know.

            But if you know a regional area doesn’t have great Telstra coverage, it might be worthwhile trying another provider.

              @cloudy: In Jindabyne a couple of years ago, Telstra was noticeably worse than Optus/Voda and recently when I've been camping it's been patchy. I have the work and personal phone combo so I can make do.

            @Caped Baldy: Depends how regional.

            Places like Doomadgee and Mornington Island ONLY have Testra, and have exceeded their 4G capacity, so usually only work by locking your phone to 3G.

            Normanton, however, recently got an Optus tower, and boy does it HOON!

        Agreed, I live in Gold Coast, Kogan reception at home is better than Telstra and optus.

      •  

        I was referring to the non-existent support and lousy porting in/out process that others have complained about. Not the coverage specifically.

    Kogan customer care is the worst. I will never go with them .Boost is super fast .

    • +4 votes

      I've read complaints about Boost customer care as well.

    • +1 vote

      Fact? And realistically, how often do you need customer care for a phone network?

      •  

        I tried to port my number from Telstra to Kogan Couple of weeks back .
        They did not do it nearly three days . Eventually when i checked with Telstra i was told number porting request has not given to them by Kogan .
        I tried calling three times to their customer service number and was online over 05 hours. Opened three online cases but did not have any luck .Eventually ported my number to Optus for a week and went back to Boost . Boost did it in 01 hour.
        If i waited any longer i would have lost my number for ever as my planned was expired while i was waiting for kogan to port In.
        Still for any cases kogan customer service did not respond.

      Never had an issue with Kogan, in fact they went a couple of years bumping peoples data allowance for no reason. That’s good customer service in my book.

    •  

      The whole point of using Virtual Operators (i.e. Kogan, Boost, Lebara, Lycamobile, CatchConnect) is you are ready to compromise on Support, as opposed to Core Operators, Telstra, Optus, Vodafone. That said, I have observed amaysim, although a Virtual Operator has excellent Customer Service. They go out of their way to make a customer happy and also dole out freebies.

      As you can see amaysim was the first one in Virtual Operators to offer 10GB Free Data for the current Emergency situation. Well, we got it on Boost too, but technically it was only for Telstra.

      Customer Care on Call/Chat with a bit of patience, is what you need for the other Virtual Operators :-)

    Tbh Kogan/voda reception is better than Telstra for me

  • +9 votes

    Boost is still better. Currently offering 120gb for $150 yearly. You get telstra network and international calls included, whether you choose to use it or not.

      I assume you mean this targeted deal? Good if you’re targetted

        It's still on for new customers.

      Boost doesn’t have any international data roaming. I like to have this available as a backup or one day stopover.

      Only better if you get a decent signal with Telstra which clearly heaps of people aren’t by these comments.

      Depends where you are, I'm in charge of telecom things within my company, and the things of note, that I can take away is thus; IF we assume you have coverage of all 3….

      • Telstra often has the best peak-hour speeds, however has had several significant outages over the last 2 years.
      • Optus has the slowest, yet most reliable speeds (slow, but, dependable) and only had one geo-location based semi-outage in the last 2 years.
      • Vodafone has the fastest speeds overall, and had no significant outages in the last 2 years; the only downside is reception, however with Voda and Telstra tower sharing, you may not get good speeds, but you should get reception most everywhere.

      edit: of course, I'm talking nation wide, local outages happen.

    This might just apply for port backs, unless i'm reading that incorrectly.

    What does "Port Back Offer Only" mean? Are existing customers whose current plan is expiring eligible?

    • +1 vote

      It means its a deal for those who where with Kogan Previously and Ported away from them.

      So it seems they are trying to take back whatever customers that have left them via data sweetener.

      IMO I hope Boost does some good deals for customers that want to Recharge. Some of us dont need more data but prefer Price.

      Optus are the worst for me - distorted compressed calls (which is still a problem - I can't understand people calling from congested Optus towers) - abusive customer service - never again!!

      •  

        THAT's the word I've been looking for to describe Optus customer service - Abusive. Excellent call.

      Kogan/Vodafone may have better signal than Optus for some.

    •  

      Make that one a deal, buddy boi

            @hoxygt: I thought that Kogan was on Voda network?

  • +4 votes

    It's not comparable with Boost or Optus. This is 9GB per 30 days whereas all the competitors give you all the data upfront.

    This plan is perfect for parents to buy for their kids, it's peace of mind that they won't use all the data in one night.

    • +1 vote

      This could also be a benefit to those who monitor their data usage. They could save data that has not been used in a month and carry it over to the next, continuously stacking until the last month. Although, this will only work with people who use less than the given data per month.

  •  

    Extra 28gb only offsets the network coverage. It needs to be discounted to offset for international calls.

    Boost is better value

  •  

    So if I'm currently with Kogan I can't use the voucher?

    •  

      As I understand, you would forfeit your current plan for this. Depends how far through your plan you are.

  •  

    Perfect! Thanks OP made this mistake of leaving Kogan last year for boost and regretted it instantly with poor coverage everywhere I was getting a great signal with Voda.

    Now I get to port back as part of this deal and get an extra 28gb.

    Perfect timing as my boost deal is up end of April!

    •  

      where is everywhere?

      •  

        Most places in Melbourne. South east suburbs mainly. My wife is still with Kogan and whenever I’m low on signal she has full bars with Voda.

        Seems like I’m not the only one judging by the comments on here.

  •  

    What are people using their GBs for now since we're all at home for the next 12 months?

    •  

      That's true actually, good point

    In case anyone wants personal experience from a Kogan Mobile user, I have used it for about 4 years and have to say that I'm very pleased.

    I am on the 13GB per month Kogan plan, and straight away need to point out that Kogan Mobile service basically just uses Vodafone's mobile service. This means that you will get the EXACT same service which Vodafone will provide.

    I haven't had any issues with my data signal, and quite happily use 4G+ every day on my OnePlus 7T Pro

    For the price, it gives heaps of data, unlimited calls and text, making this completely worth it. The only feature I wish it had was wifi-calling since I live in an area with low phone signal :(

  •  

    i am now on catch connect and now i try to port back in to kogan within 30 days but failed, when i activate my kogan sim and bring in my number from catch connect, the voucher i used return an error message 'invalid voucher'. i paid 3 times on kogan to try a new voucher but all still failed and called kogan mobile and they now they dont have phone support….

    any one know why the voucher failed?

  •  

    so i am currently on kogan and have been for 2 years, if i buy this offer for $150 how much data do i get??
    this is very unclear no one said anything about it in the comments
    what happens if i buy it will i not be able to activate the voucher or will i automatically get the small 8gb per month plan instead?

    •  

      It says "port back offer only". You need to port out and back 😂

  •  

    I wonder if I should stay with Boost for $150 for 80GB… Hm!
