Need more data on your phone? Why am I even asking, of course you do! Amaysim is upping its mobile data game by offering a huge 40GB on its new $50 unlimited plan, and that’s outside of any discounts or special offers. Here are the details.

Amaysim is doubling the data included on its basic plans, with the uppermost $50 plan going from 20GB to 40GB. The $30 plan now has 10GB, while the $40 plan will give you 20GB. If you’re looking for a month-to-month plan with lots of data, Amaysim’s $50 is currently the cheapest on the market to offer 40GB.

However if you’re willing to lock yourself into a 6 or 12 month plan, there are cheaper options out there – Optus’s current deal, for example, is offering 50GB data for $44 per month on a 12 month plan. As Amaysim operates on Optus’s network, it’s tempting to go straight with Optus in this case.

If you’re willing to go with the Vodafone network, they’re currently offering 40GB for $40 with discounts and bonus data applied.

When it comes to month-to-month, however, this plan can’t be beat. Comparable data on Optus would cost you $75 month to month, while with Vodafone it would be $60 for just 20GB data.

With Amaysim’s month-to-month plans you can upgrade or downgrade your plans whenever it’s necessary, which is a neat little way to manage your mobile finances according to your needs.

What do you think of the new plans? Tell us in the comments!


  • The fact that I had to find this information by absolute chance and not as advice from Amaysim themselves (I’m a current customer) really pisses me off. Contacting their support now.

  • Worth keeping in mind that Amaysim runs on 28 day cycles which means you effectively pay for 13 months over the course of a year.
    Let’s see how long before other leading Optus MVNOs like Ovo and CatchConnect respond to this.
    My guess is that it won’t be long.
