GoMo Mobile Plans Review
With many Australians looking for cheaper and more flexible alternatives to the big telcos, the popularity of small online-based mobile brands has grown. Unsurprisingly, the big mobile networks themselves are keen to get in on the low-cost action – the latest example being GoMo.
GoMo is a new digital-only telco in Australia, owned by Optus with one key thing in mind – simplicity. As such the telco only offers three phone plans on a SIM-only basis, but how does GoMo compare to the competition?

GoMo Mobile Phone Plans at a glance
GoMo is a small provider which offers three easy-to-understand plans, giving customers simplicity that a lot of competing providers don’t offer. GoMo plans include unlimited standard talk and text in Australia and renew every 30 days, and the two more expensive plans include unlimited international calls to 15 countries.
If you need more data, you can add a $5 Data Booster as needed, which will give you an additional 5GB. GoMo plans also include data rollover, so unused gigabytes can be stored in a data bank for later use (limit of 200GB).
GoMo’s plans could be a decent plan for your kids as it keeps things quite simple, although really it’d suit anybody. You can find further information below.

GoMo Mobile network coverage
GoMo is a subsidiary of Optus, and as such uses the Optus 4G+ network. It’s safe to assume you’ll get a signal in most parts of Australia, barring areas with serious signal issues. If you’re unsure, speak with GoMo support.
While 5G access may eventually come to GoMo, coverage is currently limited to Optus 3G and 4G networks.
Features and bonuses
GoMo’s plans are incredibly simple to understand. Below you’ll find the highlights of the GoMo plan:
- International calls: The GoMo $25 and $35 plans allow for unlimited international calls to 15 select countries, including Canada, China, France, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand, United Kingdom, and United States.
- Additional data: GoMo plans allow for a 5GB additional data booster for $5.
- Data rollover: As long as you maintain an active subscription, you have access to a data bank where you can store up to 200GB of unused data on any GoMo plan.
Dodo’s smallest plan is $15 per month, and offers 4GB base data. Dodo offers double data on the first three recharges, so you can expect 8GB of data per month until the fourth month. You can find the plan below.
GoMo’s mid-range plan is $25 per month, and offers 18GB of data. Customers can expect 36GB of data on the first three recharges, followed by 18GB of data thereafter. You can find the plan below.
GoMo’s largest plan is $35 per month, and includes 30GB of data. Customers can expect 60GB of data on the first three recharges on this plan, with 30GB included thereafter. You can find the plan below.

How does GoMo compare to the others?
With GoMo’s focus being simplicity, there’s only a handful of providers that can be properly compared with it. Some are as follows:
Is GoMo a good deal?
GoMo’s plans offer some attractive value, especially with the inclusion of bonus data on the first three recharges, however if you’d like extra inclusions, then it might be worth looking elsewhere. $5 for 5GB in an additional data package is also quite a good price, and is there if you need it. Regardless, GoMo hits the nail on the head when it comes to simplicity, with only three easy-to-understand phone plans to choose from.
