There was a time when every other story on the TV shows that pass for "current affairs" was about bill shock. The stories were simple. Someone signed up to a mobile phone plan and when the bill arrived at the end of the month it was much higher than expected. The customer would would shake their fist saying the carrier ripped them off while the service provider said it was up to the user to make sure they understood the contract they had signed up for. Thankfully, there have been improvements but many people are still being hit with excess charges. However, it seems they just don't care as much.
When you consider that most phone plans include unlimited calls and SMS, what we're primarily paying for each month is data. With that in mind, signing up for a Data Rollover plan becomes a very smart move. Alternatively, there are plenty of prepaid plans available that offer oodles of data at a reasonable price. Here are the best options currently available in each category.
Virgin Mobile is not long for this world. Over the next two years, parent company Optus will be phasing out the brand and is likely to move all customers to its own network. So why stick around?
Here are the best equivalent plans from Virgin Mobile's rivals - many of which boast better data allowances and pricing. Make the switch now.
Telstra and Optus announced this week that both would launch 5G services next year, and the general response was "sure, but it's not like they're going to give us a lot of data, so who cares?"

Ladies and gentlemen, if you haven't already, it is time to join the revolution. Recent findings from research group Telsyte revealed that over half of Australian phone owners have ditched phone plan contracts and now use BYO phone plans.
Not that we need to tell a tech savvy bunch like you. You're probably all using grey import, dual-SIM Xiaomi smartphones and have long known the virtues of SIM Only phone plans.
