What makes you choose a particular mobile phone provider, and what is most important to you? Is it price, reputation, customer service, brand, or something else?
In general, you can be split into three groups.
1. Price conscious. This group tends to shop around, carefully considering a variety of providers, and weighing up cost vs. coverage. Price conscious individuals are the most likely to switch providers, being are easily tempted by better deals elsewhere. Amaysim is popular with this group, being described as a simple cheap option.
2. Coverage is more important than price. Some of you are not prepared to sacrifice a reliable connection for the sake of a few dollars. For this group, Telstra is your provider of choice and Optus is also popular. Many of you have tried both Optus and Telstra, and settled with the one that works best for you reception-wise.
3. No choice. Those who live in rural areas either feel irate about the situation, or feel lucky to have any kind of coverage at all. Brad says “Those with mobile reception at home are indeed fortunate. Regardless of provider, we have no reception whatsoever....having to drive over 3kms before we can even get a two-bar signal.” You are open to switching to new providers, but more often than not, you can only get one provider in your area so have no choice but to stay with them.
For all of you, customer service is important as is a choice of plans. Prepaid budget option Amasyim is well reviewed. Still says “I have been a customer with Amaysim for more than one year. The reception is good. They really care about their customer.” Not doing so well is Vodafone, which many say has issues with reception/coverage.
