5 Tips for a Better Phone Plan
Like all other household bills, the phone plan you select can make or break your budget. Here are 5 tips to find a better phone plan.
Check Your Charges: Look at your latest statement and see what you are being charged for. How much data are you going through each month? Is it more than your current plan or less? Is the unlimited data, truly unlimited or do you tackled with a slower speed once you use a certain amount of data? Once you know how much data you actually use per month, you can start searching for plans that cater to your need.
Plan or No Plan: Do you want to be locked into a plan or pay as you go? If you already own your phone and don’t need to upgrade, a pay as you go phone plan could be less than a contracted plan.
Use Comparison Websites: If you don’t want to visit each provider’s website and do a comparison on your own, a comparison site like WhistleOut will show you the hottest deals on the market.
Don’t Forget the Little Guys: There are the 3 big teleco networks: Telstra, Optus and Vodaphone but don’t forget to look at or try the little guys like Amaysim, Boost, Belong and others. The smaller guys often are cheaper but you might not receive all the bells and whistles like free streaming of footy.
Porting Your Number: Have you had your phone number forever? Still want to keep the same number? Once you have your new provider, they will do this for you and save you the hassle of telling everyone you got a new phone number.
