I have just returned from The Land Downunder, and found a good SIM card deal.

The company is called Amaysim, and for $30 I got a SIM card that permitted 30GB of data …. but I never used that.  The BEST part was that for 28 days I got unlimted talk/calls to any (standard) Australian and International numbers !

Worth a look …

Optus are also doing a similar deal for $30 at the moment - I believe Amaysim also use the Optus Network. 


  • 35GB data (on the first 3 recharges).
  • 10GB streaming data for Netflix/Stan/iView.
  • Unlimited Calls/Texts.
  • Unlimited Calls to NZ Landline/Mobiles included as well.

At least Amaysim use per kb rounding now. For many years they used per MB rounding, meaning every data session was rounded up to the nearest megabyte. In my experience this meant you'd probably get somewhere around 100MB - 200MB of actual data usage for a 1GB data limit if you had lots of things running on your phone that always connect to the Internet.
