    Hi, i am currently on the following PAYG plan with Aldi, usually top up around every 6 months with $30, and pay 12 cents for each text and 12 cents per minute for calls, and i very rarely go on the net unless i get free wifi while away from home.

    https://www.aldimobile.com.au/plans/payg/

    It was great until i just got my new phone several weeks ago, but i noticed that i am now using it a bit more, especially for texts, so my $30 is not lasting as long as it used to, so i have decided i am better off on a 30 day unlimited calls/text plan with at least 1gb of data, so i am considering a move to the Aldi PAYG small value pack plan instead.

    https://www.aldimobile.com.au/plans/s-value-pack/

    Anyone know of an alternative plan on the telstra network that might be better value than this one.

    I want to stick to the telstra network as my wife is on Kogan (vodafone) and i want at least one of us to have telstra for better coverage if we go anywhere that vodafone can't cover, which happens a lot here in Tasmania.

    Cheers

    Telstra Network: Belong, lycamobile and Telstra all have unlimited calls/SMS plus 1gb for $10pm.

    https://www.whistleout.com.au/MobilePhones/ Is a good site to use.

    I'm considering thinkmobiles unlimited calls/SMS with $20gb for $30.

    Where is the Telstra $10 plan in that link ?

    LycaMobile looks good for $10, unlimited plus 1gb
    https://www.lycamobile.com.au/en/plans/

    Think i will stick with the Aldi small for $15p/m with 1.5gb data for 1 month, and if i don't use much data in the first month, might swap over to Lyca.

    I still have $7.50 credit with Aldi, so i can use that to partially fund the first $15 recharge and only have to pay the extra $7.50 from my card.

    Looks like I skimmed over them a bit fast. lycamobile is 28days and Telstra is 7days, sorry.

    i looked on the telstra website, nothing there either, but it's ok, the Lyca would do me if i need to downscale to less data, as long as i get the same quality service and coverage that i get from Aldi it should be fine.
