Amaysim’s pay-as-you-go call rates were already fairly low at 15 cents per minute with no flagfall, but now they’re a little cheaper. The standard per-minute rate for all Amaysim As You Go customers has dropped to 12 cents per minute from today, and some international call rates have also fallen.

New research suggests that 68 per cent of Australians don’t believe they get full value from their contract plans. Despite that, 45 per cent have experienced ‘bill shock’, where their monthly bill is much higher than expected.
Unlimited phone plans rarely include calls to freecall numbers (13 and 1800 services). Amaysim has now added that option to its Unlimited plan, joining a short list of providers offering that option (Red Bull and Boost are the other ones that immediately spring to mind, thanks to readers for reminding us of the second).
