When amaysim launched in 2010, they made an immediate impression by realising that consumers don’t want to be tied down in long and complex contracts with obscure conditions. They offered cut-price calls, text and data, and challenged the industry norm of having to sign up to a plan for years.
What makes amaysim unique?
These days, almost every provider is offering the sort of rates on calls and texts that amaysim helped pioneer – but they’ve pushed the envelope further in recent times. Now, every prepaid plan that you choose with amaysim comes with unlimited national calls and texts – and every single plan also comes with unlimited international calls to ten countries, including the big ones – The UK, USA, China and New Zealand.
It’s not done as a cut-price thing, either – amaysim leverages the extensive Optus 4G Plus network, meaning they’ve got coverage to the vast majority of the population, and fast data service along with it. With the prepaid plans differentiated by data allowance, you can pick and choose the right balance between your budget and needs. But regardless of which one you choose, you can talk and text as much as you like!
Which countries are included?
amaysim’s unlimited international calls apply to ten countries – USA, UK, New Zealand, China, India, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Thailand, South Korea and Singapore. The higher-end plans add five hours of calls to an additional 12 countries to what is already a very sweet deal.
Is 4G Data supported?
amaysim uses the Optus mobile network, and cut a deal with them in 2015 to expand their coverage to take advantage of the advanced 4G Plus section of the network as well. That means fast data download is yet another thing you don’t have to miss out on just because you choose prepaid.
