You might recall that the german discount supermarket Aldi decided to enter the game of mobile phone services around a year and a half ago, offering Australian’s a bit of choice when it came to some good value mobile calling using the network stability of Telstra through wholesaler ispONE.
Over that time the company has weathered competition from other competing brands, the financial instability of the wholesaler ispONE which eventually turned into a deal with Telstra directly to offer wholesale services to the Aldimobile brand.
Since the major contract changes, the company has been tinkering with options and pricing on various occasions, this time being able to come up with a decent balance for those who use their phone for a bit of everything as well as family or friend group calling.
In an email sent to all users this week and now also displayed on the website, the company unveiled the new pricing options which begin from November 3.
Value pack offerings are the main change to the service, with quota additions of 100mb for the $20 pack right up to a full gigabyte of data for those who are using the $35 XL plan.
All plans will now include free calls & sms between other Aldi customers, which works great for families and groups of friends.
In addition, the data pack bolt-on options will move from the single $30 3GB option to an additional 1.5GB for $16.50.
Existing customers will be converted to the new offerings from next recharge following November 3.
If you are not already a customer and are keen to take up the providers service, they offer starter kits for Normal or Micro SIM card’s in the supermarket chain’s stores from $5….those people with NanoSIM’s need to order online at www.aldimobile.com.au.
