What is amaysim Mobile?

A major player in Australia’s telco industry since 2010, amaysim’s current offering shows why they’ve risen to the top – and how they’ve stayed there. They’ve upped the value on their SIM-only plans so you get no lock-in contracts, unlimited international standard calls to 10 countries in select plans, and huge data allowances. amaysim is powered by the Optus 4G Plus network, so not only do you get the energy of a start-up but it’s backed by one of Australia’s most reliable networks. Increasing the telco’s standing in the mobile industry is its recent acquisition of Jeenee Mobile. amaysim is currently Australia’s fourth largest mobile provider. It’s also the country’s biggest mobile virtual network operator. Jeenee’s integration into amaysim means 41,700 more customers added with existing Jeenee users to be migrated to amaysim’s sister company, Vaya.
