gotalk's MAX Plan Promises Free Prepaid 3G Data

Data charges on prepaid mobile plans are often excessive. Gotalk's MAX plan now includes 5MB of free data a day and low rates for some international calls, but there's still catches to bear in mind.

Once you've purchased a $9.95 starter kit, you can top up on the MAX plan with $10 or more of credit. Until that credit expires, you get 5MB of data a day, with excess usage charged at 2 cents per megabyte. (Note that gotalk rounds charges to the nearest 5 cents.) The big caveat here is that gotalk uses Vodafone, which doesn't enjoy a great network reputation right now.

The other selling point for the MAX plan is cheap international calls, with some calls attracting only a 15 cent flag fall. We looked at a similar '0 cents per minute' deal for international calls from Lebara back in March. Gotalk's offer covers rather more countries (67 by its own count), though those rates only apply to off-peak calls (between 11pm and 11am). Outside that period, the flagfall is 30 cents and the rates vary heavily by country.

    Its great service and recommended I use it since 2009

    5MB? serious?
    come back when it's 50MB.

    Looks like the person who designed the GoTalk logo did the B105 radio station one as well...

    Worst support ever. Would never recommend GoTalk to anyone.

    after the experience i had with gotalk i would never go anywhere near them. especially after they sent debt collectors to me when i alread had paid the final bill, and had a reciept of it.

    I have always had good experiences using GoTalk, they have really good rates. I use this MAX plan and I can call the UK during their daytime and I only pay the flagfall, I think it’s a great deal
