OK, so ALDI Mobile now looks like rather poorer value than before: it has just halved its monthly data allowance on its unlimited prepaid plan from 5GB to 2.5GB.
We’ve been expecting this kind of reduction ever since the collapse of Kogan Mobile. ALDI Mobile managed to negotiate its own wholesale deal with Telstra in the wake of that change, but it always seemed unlikely it would maintain such relatively generous terms and conditions. Last month, it imposed a daily download limit.
ALDI Mobile now charges $35 a month for unlimited Australian calls and texts, plus 2.5GB of data. That’s not an utterly terrible deal, but there are plenty of prepaid deals with more data allocations, as you can see in our recent roundup (we’ll do an updated version soon).
Bottom line: if you want a Telstra network prepaid deal that doesn’t cost you a fortune and has decent data allowances, either choose Boost or go with the Encore cap deal. Thanks nevski123 for the tip!
