I hope the speeds aren't as slow as their postal services
I feel they should do their job and not do mobile, insurance etc when their postage service is so shit.
Slow mail, missing mail. Redirections not followed or all collected till the last date etc etc
Feel free to start your own postal service if you think you can do it better.
How many gigabytes of data will get lost normally ?
Phillip Britt threw a tantrum when I told him what the former "Trujillo Mess" was giving me now!
I just can't imagine potentially dealing with any customer service offered by Aus Post…
Mustn't have heard of couriers please then
Or any other mobile Telco really.
Edit title as it comes with a bonus Cartier watch, or a ton of salt from an ex ceo
Does this run on Postie network?
Data is the post…..
And between Kogan $4.95 each month and this I know what I would choose.
Isn't Kogan for 1 month?
yeah $4.95 for the 1st month - then $49.90…
So you're a bit off my friend ;)
@urbancartel: Actually, I am spot on. Every month a new sim. It's worth it for $150 saving.
@bargainparker: And a new numbers unless you port out and in after 1 month so maybe not worth that saving after all
@jayboi: Sometimes port, sometimes just a new number. Of course there are those who can't be bothered, or who need to have the same number. To me, $150 is worth it.
@bargainparker: Yeah i'm comparing apples with apples - you're comparing apples with oranges…
I'm not interested in a new number or wasting time porting monthly so your point is moot
@urbancartel: As I said: "Of course there are those who can't be bothered".
I would say, there are quite a few of those who don't earn big bucks, and I know I'd be happy to sit even 1 hour to port it, if need be, than work and hour in a factory. At least I can make myself a nice cuppa tea and relax.
I guess that's one of reasons why I have money now ¯_(ツ)_/¯
@bargainparker: Yeah as I said your point is moot - if your option didn't involve me giving up my number every month then you may be able to compare… But hey, you enjoy your cuppa and texting all your family and friends your new number… I'm sure they enjoy hearing from you around the same day each month with your new deets!
@urbancartel: Some of my family and friends do the same thing and I have a permanent Aldi number. It worked so far.
You're referring to their 30-day starter pack, which is not a $4.90/month ongoing service.
Correct. Nothing stopping you to just buy a new sim every month.
There is actually, as it's a starter pack and can not be used to renew an existing service.
@magic8ballgag: Well, that doesn't seem to be related to my post. In any case, you can use a new sim every month and also you can use it to renew an existing service as long as you pay $49.90 after the first month.
As I said at the beginning, I know what I would choose. Didn't say others should/had too. It is a choice everyone makes and this is just one more option to add.
Urbancartel said I was comparing oranges and apples. If I said it's buying Samsung S21 is the same as buying S10, that would be comparing apples and oranges. In this case, Kogan is $15 cheaper, yet offers more data, and the only difference is having to have a new number every month.
Most people who choose to do that, would have one permanent number and new numbers each month. I have no family or friends I don't want to talk to, so if it is a new number I won't answer, because you know, it might be someone I hate, or running away from. We know among us who gets new sims every month and we are fine with that.
Says Optus 4G Plus network - is that the full Optus network? I understand some other Optus-based providers are on a more limited network?
Does it have VOLTE?
Quite interested, also perhaps the $150/100Gb 12-month one.
