    So many good 365 day deals coming out. I went Telstra > ALDI > Belong > Boost > Optus trying to get reception in my work place. I work on 2nd floor from the top of an office building and my desk was in a complete black spot for Telstra network (either full or partial network providers). Buddy slipped me his Optus Sim and get full 4g, even in the elevator. Wife still on Telstra network for when we travel because I don't fully trust Optus to not leave me stranded, but was only option to get reception at work. Ridiculous.

    i work for Telstra, and in one of the buildings (that is pretty much entirely Telstra staff), when you get near the lift boom, lose service if you're with Telstra. Optus, full reception..

    I'm on Boost 80G annual plan currently. It's great so far. Speed is excellent. Faster than my home NBN network.

    same, my office at home is a Telstra black spot, despite being perfectly within the coverage maps

    i was with Boost for 30 days, and to get SMS or make calls, i'd have to put my phone in a certain spot and use my BT headset

    now with Optus, i get reception everywhere

    ended up with the Optus 365 60gb plan for $150

    not quite as good as the Boost 365 80gb plan, but i'll take reception over a few extra gb

    I got that same deal for $120. 60gb is plenty for me. Better than the boost plan IMO because at least it works :lol:

    It is hard to believe (though what u say have nothing with this) that Telstra reception is shi....T
    I mean they brag about as being the best in Australia..though lots of others have said similar in regards to services/receptions etc..

    Weird, I've had terrible experience with everyone but Telstra. Optus is horrible for me. When I want to use my phone, there's never any reception or it's 1 bar. Mind you though this was many years ago and I swore to never go back. Been on Telstra since and never had any issues.
