Amaysim - new mobile provider
I couldn't believe Rev. Dr. Wu Yi knew the Amaysim mobile provider before me. And after the phone call with him, I received the e-newsletter from the Gadget Guy about this new mobile provider attempting to undercut competition.
In short, a new telco has launched in Australia to grab mobile market, offering cheap calls without the flagfall (connection fee) on a SIM-only plan.
Unlike Don's advanced United States of America, mobile calls are pretty expensive here in Australia.
Amaysim hopes to attract customers with call rates of 15 cents per minute with no flagfall to any network or landline, SMS rates of 12 cents per message, and data rates costing 5 cents per MB. This contrasts with prepaid rates from other providers which typically include a 35 cent flagfall for every phone call and rates of 30 to 90 cents per minute.
Amaysim offers SIM-only service, you will need to bring your SIM or micro-SIM mobile handset.
An interesting surprise is the use of a support team working from Sydney and not from overseas.
As for me, I am very happy with the coverage and speed provided by Telstra's Next-G network.
