Boost Mobile is unashamedly targeting the youth market with pre-paid SIM only plans starting at $10.

Once you buy a $2 sim – you can bring your existing number over – simply select the voice/data plan that suits you. There are no lock-in contracts, unused data rollover, and it uses the Telstra 3/4G network (data speeds capped to 100Mb/s download).

Once you have worked out how much you need, you can set up auto-recharge or simply use the Android or iOS app to recharge. You can vary the amount each month too so its handy if you are travelling. Boost also has occasional special offers that you can access through the app.

To call overseas, you need to purchase a $15 Add-On. It includes UNLTD international calls and text to standard numbers in 10 countries (Canada, China, Germany, Ireland, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Africa, UK and USA) and $15 of credit to for calls to other countries. Or you can use your data for VoIP services and like Skype and What’s App.

Boosts current rates are:

  • $10 for 1GB used in 7 days (no data rollover)
  • $20 for 2.5GB used in 28 days (no data rollover)
  • $30 for 5GB used in 28 days (data rollover and 100 minutes of international calls to 50 destinations)
  • $40 for 15GB used in 28 days (as above)
  • $50 for 20GB used in 28 days (as above)

All plans include unlimited texts, calls, MMS, and message bank within Australia. You can Stream Apple Music data-free if you have a subscription.

According to recent Pedestrian Group research, one in four young Aussies haven’t watched an episode of commercial television in the past month, yet they average 15 episodes of Netflix a month, and group chat has overtaken social media as the way young Aussies communicate.

“It’s obvious that mobile data continues to grow in importance for youth when considering a mobile network. In response, Boost Mobile’s new offers are highly competitive plans that include more data, importantly on every recharge, all on Australia’s best mobile network which ensures the Boost Customer also gets great coverage and speed. We need to tick all the boxes, and these new offers do just that”, said Jason Haynes, General Manager, Boost Mobile.
