Felix Mobile Phone Plans at a glance
Felix Mobile is a super simple SIM-only provider – and as such only offers one plan. Felix’s plan offers unlimited calls and texts in Australia, along with “endless” data of up to 20Mbps for $35 per month. There’s no lock in contracts, and the plan renews every month. 20Mbps data speeds is enough for basic usage, however you may notice some quality and speed dips compared to other plans. You’ll also need to sign up for Felix Mobile through the provider’s app.
What you get with Felix that you don’t get with other providers is a company-conscious approach to the environment. Firstly, the telco says it will plant a tree for every month that you’re signed up. On top of this, Felix Mobile is carbon neutral, and is powered by 100% renewable electricity.
On top of the base $35 plan, there’s two add-ons that you can pick up. The first is endless international calls to over 40 selected countries, for $5 per month extra. The second is international roaming for $20, to be used over 365 days. This gets you 4GB of data, with speeds up to 20Mbps, along with 100 standard minutes, and 100 standard SMS in over 40 selected countries.
Keep in mind that as Felix Mobile is a SIM-only provider, you’ll need to bring your own unlocked smartphone.

Felix Mobile network and coverage
Felix Mobile is a subsidiary of TPG and Vodafone, and as such uses the Vodafone 4G network – owned by the third largest telco in Australia and now covering over 22 million Aussies. Typically because of this you can expect Felix Mobile to work where you live, but just to be safe if you’re unsure you should check with the provider before signing up.

Is Felix Mobile a good deal?
Having only one plan available, Felix Mobile doesn’t offer a lot of variety, however it is certainly the choice for an environmentally-conscious consumer wanting flexibility and no contracts. Being carbon neutral, running on 100% renewable electricity, and committing to plant a tree for every month that you’re signed up, Felix Mobile is a worthy choice if you’re after a telco that does a little bit more for the environment.
As for value, $35 gets you ‘unlimited’ data, but all data use is restricted to speeds of 20Mbps. That’s fairly generous for the odd customer, but is certainly not for everyone, especially if you’ve shelled out for a 5G phone and want to take advantage of ultra-fast mobile speeds. Of course you can always compare phone plans if you’d like to shop around.
