Popular prepaid mobile and energy provider Amaysim has announced plans to offer SIM-only customers unlimited and bonus data to help Aussies stay connected during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Current customers on Amaysim’s $10, $20, and $30 SIM-only mobile plans will receive a free, automatic data boost from today. Bonus data is as follows:

  • $10 SIM plan: 10GB bonus data
  • $20 SIM plan: 20GB bonus data
  • $30 SIM plan: 30GB bonus data
  • $40 SIM plan: Unlimited data
  • $50 SIM plan: Unlimited data

All data is available to use between now and 15 April, 2020. Even better? If you’re on a $40 or $50 mobile plan, you’ll receive unlimited data from now through to 15 April.

Amaysim has offered unlimited data to customers on selected plans before, but for limited three-month periods. If you do qualify for month-long unlimited data, unrestricted gigabytes at 4G speeds could be a great way to avoid the congestion of the NBN during the coronavirus crisis, as the network is likely to be strained by hundreds of thousands of Australians stuck at home.

All Amaysim SIM-only plans include unlimited standard national talk and text in Australia, plus a monthly data allowance. $30, $40, and $50 plans also feature unlimited standard international talk and text to 19 selected countries.

Staying connected Amaysim’s number-one priority

Amaysim CEO and managing director, Peter O’Connell, stated that keeping customers connected is the provider’s number-one priority during the outbreak.

“We recognise that our customers rely on our service to connect with family, friends and colleagues, as well as medical and emergency service providers,” said Mr. O’Connell.

“That’s why we’re offering customers additional mobile data to assist their increasing needs during this period.”

Amaysim has also advised customers that its Manila call centre has been impacted by restrictions imposed by the Philippines government during the outbreak. Customers will still be able to access help via email and live chat (9am – 6pm AEST weekdays, and 10am – 5:30pm AEST weekends), but voice call assistance is currently unavailable.
