  • Mobile broadband vs wireless broadband: what’s the difference?
    Wireless broadband plans come in more than one form. Some providers use the 4G mobile network to deliver a home broadband service, while others use fixed wireless – faster, but potentially more expensive. We take a look at the options available in the wireless world.

Prepaid Plans – Versatile Value Without the Hassles

There was a time when you had no choice if you wanted a mobile phone or to get one you already own connected to the network. You had to agree to a 12 or 24-month contract that locked you in to your chosen provider, with all the hassle that can bring. Just getting onto a contract in the first place could be problematic if you didn’t have a great credit history, and once signed up you were locked in for the duration. If a rival provider came out with a fantastic Mobile offer you’d have to wait out your contract before switching – and then lock yourself into another contract with the new provider.

Prepaid mobile plans and the flexibility to keep your phone number when switching providers made life a lot more flexible. However, for a long time, great prepaid mobile deals were hard to find – prepaid customers often missed out on the latest features and paid more for their calls. All that’s changed these days. Some of the best deals on calls and data can be found on prepaid, without the contract commitment so you’ve got the flexibility to move to where the value is any time you like.

Prepaid also offers the advantage of letting you budget your phone usage – because you’re paying for your calls up-front, you can’t accidentally spend more than you can afford. Though with many providers, that would be hard to do – unlimited calls and text are becoming common on prepaid, with some even including unlimited calls to the more popular international countries. With access to fast 4G wireless broadband and generous data allowances thrown in, prepaid now makes for a great-value option when you want to get connected.

Phone Plans

If you need a new smartphone – or just want to keep up with the latest advances in mobile phone technology – you can grab one without having to pay for it outright by taking up a mobile phone plan on a contract. Get the cost of your new phone rolled in with your calls and data allowance. You can even swap out your phone every year for the latest model for a modest charge. If you want to be the first with the latest, a phone plan is the right fit for you.

Prepaid Plans

With prepaid, you always know what you’re spending – you set the budget and top up your allowance whenever you need to. You can bring your own phone and just get a prepaid SIM card to take advantage of some great deals, or you can buy and own a phone and then top up its call and data allowance as you go. Prepaid is the contract-free, flexible way of getting connected with the freedom to change when you want.

SIM Only Plans

If you already own your smartphone and just want to find the best value deal to get you connected for calls and data, then a SIM only plan lets you pick your provider and go. You can choose a contract plan that reduces the overall cost, or enjoy the freedom of paying month-to-month and being able to swap to a different provider if you find a better deal. Regardless of which you choose, you always get to keep your mobile number.

Mobile Data Plans

If you’ve got a 3G or 4G capable tablet or laptop, you’ll want to be able to get it online when you’re out and about without the hassle of plugging in your phone or setting up a mobile hotspot. And having data access on the device itself not only frees you from having to search out Wi-Fi hotspots, but also keeps your personal information much more secure. Mobile data plans give you a SIM especially for your tablet or laptop, so you can always be online wherever you are.

Prepaid Plan FAQs

It depends on the provider. Thanks to the new economies of scale that have allowed many new providers to come into the market reselling access to one of the “big three” mobile networks, most of those providers focus entirely on connecting you to a network and having you pay for calls and data. However, cheap prepaid mobile phones do still exist – – you’ll find them sold most often by supermarkets and chain stores, often for as little as $29. These phones are usually “locked” to the provider that’s subsidising the cost of them, though. They’ll sell you a cheap phone, but in return they want you to stay on their network and keep recharging!
The prepaid SIM cards that the various providers offer are pretty standardised these days in terms of size – they come as a larger card with various cut-outs to let you pop out a SIM in the size that your phone needs. And as long as your phone isn’t locked to a specific mobile network, a prepaid SIM from any provider will work in it. Unfortunately, there’s not usually any easy way to check if your phone is locked to a network without putting a SIM in it and seeing if it works. If your phone was bought outright (and not as part of a prepaid package) it’s probably unlocked. If you got it as part of a contract, it may or may not be – the best way to find out is to call the provider that originally sold you the phone.
While the 30-day expiry has become something of an industry standard – you pay your money up front and lose whatever portion of it remains unspent after 30 days – there’s a lot of people who find this doesn’t suit their usage patterns. But fear not – while they’re not as easy to come by, long-expiry recharges are available from some providers, giving you up to a year to spend the amount that you recharge with. This is great for those who only want a prepaid phone so they can give friends or family a way to get in touch with them, or for emergencies.
