Want to pay just $8.95 for unlimited calls, SMS, MMS and 3GB of data over $30 days, or just $10.95 for the same deal but $5 instead?
Then Kogan Mobile wants you to take a look at its timely offer.
Yes, if you’re not already a Kogan customer, you’ll need to pay $4.90 to have a ‘tri-SIM’ sent out to you, one which is a full-size SIM, with a pop-out micro SIM and pop-out nano SIM, meaning the one pack works with whatever device you’ve got.
If you don’t already have a Kogan SIM, the $8.95 charge for the 3GB plan would be $13.85, and the $10.95 charge for the 5GB plan would be $15.85.
Kogan operates on the Vodafone network, currently only on 3G but with 4G promised ‘soon’.
The deal was actually announced on Monday, a day before Telstra’s now infamous near-nationwide outage yesterday, but naturally was heavily promoted by Kogan yesterday and seen by many Facebook and Twitter commenters as being a piece of brilliantly timed marketing.
Of course, Ruslan Kogan is no stranger to marketing, so Telstra’s woes must have seemed like a gift from Andy Penn himself, if not from God, too.
And, funnily enough, with Kogan on the Vodafone network, it is ironic to see Kogan promoting Vodafone’s network as being reliable when Vodafone was known as ‘Vodafail’ just a few short years ago, although which is something that is now long in the past.
You can see Kogan’s ribbing of Telstra’s troubles in its Twitter post which starts off by asking ‘Need a reliable network?’
More below, please read on!
The deal will ‘end 5PM AEDT’ on 31 March 2016 ‘unless extended’, which means that those who strike while the iron's hot and order quickly should easily be able to squeeze in a second month’s worth of service at either $8.95 or $10.95 depending on the amount of data you want, before the plans revert back to their standard $29.90 or $36.90 price points.
