Vaya Has An Unlimited Mobile Phone Plan For $16 A Month

Vaya has unveiled a new unlimited text and talk mobile plan for $16. The Amaysim-owned telco claims this is the cheapest unlimited mobile plan in Australia. Here are the details.

Earlier this year, Vaya introduced a ‘Price Beat Guarantee‘ for all its mobile plans in a bid to get more customers on-board. This month, the telco has ramped up competition further by bringing out a $16 unlimited standard text and talk plan to supplant it’s $20 offering. The closest competitor plan is the $16.95 one by Kogan, which also has unlimited text and talk with 1GB of data.

But if you sign up on a 12-month contract with Vaya, the $16 plan drops down to $14 a month. The catch is you have to pay it all upfront (total cost $174).

Vaya uses the Optus 4G network while Kogan uses Vodafone 4G. Vaya is also introducing a Power Plan that costs 18, which bumps up the data cap to 1.5GB with $650 talk credit and unlimited text.

Here’s a breakdown of Vaya’s offerings:

Mobile Plans Power Plan Unlimited S Unlimited M Unlimited L Unlimited X
Month-to-month price $18 $16 (previously $20) $22 $26 (previously $28) $36
12-month price $204 (equivalent to $17/month) $174 (equivalent to $14.50/month) $240 (equivalent to $20/month) $288 (equivalent to $24/month) $396 (equivalent to $33/month)
