Vaya throws its hand in with prepaid 4G options

By Staff writers | 5:39 pm 09/04/2013

There are a plethora of mobile providers out there, but if you’re not satisfied with the likes of Telstra, Optus, Vodafone, Virgin, Amaysim, Aldi, Kogan, or any of the others that we all hear from, now there’s another group entering the fray.

Calling itself a provider with the “most competitively priced 4G mobile plans in the country,” Vaya uses the Optus 4G network to provide plans from under ten dollars with at least 100MB, $50 worth of text and talk, and plans that work on either one month or 24.

Compatible with 3G phones (though not with 4G speeds), the plans go all the way up to a $45 price per month which offers unlimited calls, SMS, and 3GB of data per month.

A “skinny” plan is also offered for those who love to make calls and texts, but don’t necessarily need data, and bundle a max of 100MB per month with various dollar caps for voice and text.

“Everyone wants fast internet on-the-go and at a good price,” said Vaya’s CEO Ben Pullen. “We believe Australians should have access to these services and that’s why our plans are so competitively priced.”

Roaming rates are also available for Aussies planning on travelling abroad, though these work off Optus pricing, and aren’t specific for Vaya customers.

Data plans are also provided, useful for devices like the Apple iPad and Samsung Galaxy Camera, which start at $33 for 10GB of data per month and reach as far up as $73 for 20GB monthly.
