In today's connected world, phone plan competitiveness is largely sold on data allowances, so it comes as no surprise that Amaysim is bumping up data and international inclusions on all of its Unlimited plans.

Mobile Virtual Network Operators are nothing new in Australia, but the newest one certainly seems to be offering a good deal. Amaysim (it's supposed to be pronounced like "amazing", apparently) has just launched in Australia, and promises contract-free connectivity with all national calls costing 15 cents per minute with no flagfall and SMS messages costing just 12 cents.
