There's never been a better time to unshackle yourself from your mobile contract and sign up to a prepaid plan. This holds true whether you're a penny pincher who's worried about bill shock, or a power user who wants tons of commitment-free data. Here are the best plans currently available for both types of user.

Vodafone has today launched a new type of plan for prepaid customers -- with fully customisable plans available under a service called MyMix. With plans ranging from a 7-day to a 90-day expiry, anywhere from 500MB to 8GB of data (with bonus data included for those who sign up in May), Vodafone aims to provide a more flexible option for prepaid customers.

Optus refreshed its plan offerings a little while ago to a new "My Plan" system which had a price-entry point of $50. That's pretty hefty if you're not a heavy user. Perhaps that's why Optus decided to introduce a new $35 tier today, perhaps? Here's what it gets you.

First Kogan Mobile, now Aldi is getting in on the cheap pre-paid mobile game. News leaked tonight suggests that the discount supermarket will put its own pre-paid MVNO offering out to market next week, with others pointing to the fact that it will run from Telstra's wholesale Next G network.

NetBank is plenty nifty. Sure it's had a few missteps, like the whole "do your banking with added Facebook" thing, but on the whole, I'm a fan. Pre-paid users are going to be happy with the latest offering, though: now you can buy Telstra, Optus and BigPond pre-paid recharge credit via NetBank.

We've been enjoying the sweet speeds of Optus 4G for a little while now, but ever since the network went live for consumers a few months ago, we've all wondered about 4G pricing. Good news, everyone! It's coming next week.
