I'm still dithering over making the switch, so interested to hear from anyone if there's a particularly strong reason not to do so.

 

I kinda hoped that there'd be some sweetener from Skinny in response to Kogan launching as I'd like to stay with them; however, the <50 MB/day that the $16 plan provides is inadequate, and the cost of upgrading this is substantially more than the cost of Kogan's 365 day medium plan... So unless there's a good reason not to, I guess I need to go ahead and switch before my plan renews in two days!

 

 

 

 

My son who is on 2 degrees postpaid can save up to $25 per month if he switches to Kogan and takes the yearly pay option and gets a extra 5 GIG per month over the 2 degrees plan.  I don't think the existing MNO's and MVNO's are going to be in a hurry to match or better Kogans cheaper pricing.

Other than that initial issue of really slow when on 4g, I have had no issues with this other than normal vodafone network issues that I have with them too, so if you're ok with vodafone then this should be fine since it seems the same.

@richms - I haven't been with Vodafone for probably 10 years at least, so have no recent experience with their network. How would their network reliability rate compared to Spark's?

Its just useless when fallen back to H+ on the phone. Any phone. Many locations. Toggle airplane mode and its back on 4g and working again. I dont think my phone will have volte support when they finally turn that on so wont be able to set it to LTE only if I want to have voicecalls.

Not got any text at all from it I only used the 028 number they supplied and had it for the month to see how much of the data I used without musicpass like I have on vodafone.

 

Did you port your vodafone number over to kogan and they perhaps have the left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing?

No, it was a fresh Kogan SIM (I got a dual-SIM phone so I'm just using the Kogan SIMs as throwaways for the 32GB data). My main SIM is with Warehouse Mobile.

 

As Kogan is using the Vodafone network, somehow Vodafone is probably thinking that I'm one of their customers.

My son switched over last Sunday and ported his number. So far he seems happy especially how much he is saving.
