Find family-friendly mobile plans that combine value and flexibility
With the digital means of communicating now part of the modern world’s essentials, it’s more important than ever to find mobile plans that not only suit your needs, but also those of your family. Mobile deals that are tailor-made for families – and cater to the kids – are an efficient and convenient way to access a much-needed service. Luckily, many of Australia’s providers deliver exactly that.
Southern Phone SIM-Only
Optus, Telstra, and Family Mobile Plans
Starting from $12/month
With Southern Phone, you can choose between the Telstra and the Optus networks. For Optus-powered plans, the $22 plan including unlimited calls and texts plus 7GB of data on a 12-month contract is a good start. If you prefer Telstra’s network, you can score unlimited calls, texts, and 15GB of data at $45/month with no lock-in contract.
Southern Phone also offers Family Mobile plans that are specifically designed for kids. The lowest cost plan delivers 750MB of data and $500 talk and text credit at $12/month. If you want unlimited calls and texts, the $25 plan should suffice – this gives you 1GB data allowance. For your peace of mind, the kid’s plans include the Family Zone App so you can manage your children’s online habits.
