If you’re a phone lover, you may think prepaid is a dirty word; a term to describe the lowest rung of the phone-plan food chain. But this really isn’t the case anymore. We take a look at the best options for data, unlimited call and long expiry dates.


If you needed a carrier for cheap data and decent 3G speeds, Amaysim is still one of your best options. Now though, the carrier is upping the amount of data available to Unlimited plan customers while simultaneously upping the price of the service.


It's a bit sad that pre-paid customers are sometimes treated like second-class citizens in the telco world, and it's nice to see them getting looked after every now and then. Vodafone is looking after its pre-paid customers today by switching making 4G available to them, too.


Online gadget retailer Ruslan Kogan has been selling cheap mobile phones online for some time, but now we're hearing murmurs that Kogan is about to start getting into the low-cost pre-paid market with new offerings powered by the Telstra network, and I'm inclined to believe it myself.


Telstra has been trumpeting its 4G/LTE network for some time now. Very recently we learned that the network now has over 1000 base stations around the country that support around 375,000 different tablets, smartphones and modems. Now that network has become accessible to pre-paid customers, too, thanks to the 4G hotspot. How does it compare to the 4G hotspot on post-paid plans, and is it something you should buy right now?
