Southern Phone aims to deliver the best mobile experience possible, which is why customers can choose between Optus’ (Green plans) and Telstra’s (Orange plans) networks when signing up. SIM-only plans under the telco’s Orange plans, however, currently deliver the best value you can hope for in a mobile plan.
For as little as $12/month, you can get connected through Southern Phone’s Orange Plans powered by Telstra. This buys you unlimited calls and texts in Australia plus 1GB of data. If you need a little more than this, you can go all the way up to the highest-value plan at $40/month for unlimited calls and texts with 30GB of data.
Southern Phone Orange Plans
With the Southern Phone Orange plans, you are connected via Telstra’s network but with notably cheaper monthly plan fees. They range from $15 to $60 plans with data allowances from 1GB up to 30GB. All plans feature unlimited calls and texts in Australia with no lock-in contract, so you get non stop calling and SMS without having to commit to a long-term deal. Overall, it’s not hard to see why Southern Phone is your best choice if you want to stick to Telstra’s network without the usual lengthy contracts and high costs.
Discounts on SIM-Only Plans
Signing up to Southern Phone’s Orange plans can get you as much as $20 in monthly discounts. If you only care about your call and text inclusions, you’ll be happy to settle for the $15 plan, which is now down to $12/month with unlimited talk and text as well as 1GB of data. For moderate data users, $20/month buys you 5GB data on the plan which would normally cost you $30.
If you want more data, the $45 plan is down to $30/month with 15GB data. It’s the $60 plan, however, that packs amazing value. Now only $40/month, you get unlimited talk and text credit and a huge data allowance of 30GB. If your internet needs are extensive, as is the case for those of you who stream daily or make video calls, this is the plan for you.
Apart from securing a connection through Telstra’s network, which happens to be the biggest in the country, you also save $20/month if you opt for the highest-value plan. It’s an ideal scenario for customers — huge data and savings, no lock-in contract, and with the backing of Australia’s largest mobile network.
Are the Discounted Monthly Plan Fees Permanent?
The discounted monthly plan fees of $12, $20, $30, and $40 only apply to the first 12 months. Afterwards, they’ll revert to the full price, which are $15, $30, $45, and $60 respectively. Nonetheless, you get savings of between $36 and $240 in a 12-month period. After that, you can always cancel without penalties if you find a better deal somewhere else, since there’s no minimum term. That’s how flexible Southern Phone is. They listen to your needs and deliver.
