All good, great coverage, no dropouts. Recommend as good price and great service :) bla bla bla. It is a great service but I cannot write 30 words to describe this service
Network coverage has been solid and the internet works effectively. Seems to be the best value for money around. Highly recommend, particularly for your younger people. Great value and you are not locked in for a long time either.
Was expecting this would be more reliable
The network coverage seem to be quite poor. Being in Sydney metropolitan area (Waterloo) i have problems finding network in many spots. Connect/disconnect time is quite bad too - it might take a good 5-7 minutes for the mobile device (iphone 11) to find the network and connect to when im outta the underground parking.
The major benefit of Moose - its cheap. You get what you pay for. Otherwise consider something either based on Telstra, or connect directly with Optus/Telstra bypassing the shim providers.
The overall rating and the number of positive comments make me feel these mainly paid or fake.
Shaking up the mobile market and offering great deals
Great price and coverage. I can't complain about anything. More people should switch off the big telcos and join. I get 18GB for $21.80 (No contract). No hidden fees or surprises.
Great value, good services and quick delivery
I was skeptical at the beginning as never heard of Moose moble before. So decided to give it a go. It's good value among all other brands, receptions are always great. Lucky we decied to try it at the first place.
Easy. Affordable. No issues.
Have not had one issue, no dropouts. Runs off Optus. Data downloads are super fast. Quick and easy sign up. Would recommend to anybody. So happy, saving so much money.
Great service. really smooth transition porting over and no hick ups so far keep up the good work :)
Network coverage good
To be honest this review method is probably the most annoying thing about the moose Mobile experience so far because it won’t let you put a review of less than 30 words.
Bit lame I think.
Good value but limited customer orientation
The good things: Quick and efficient to set up. Overall a good value deal for newbies (20 Gig). No problems with the Optus coverage.
The bad things: a) Not as clear and transparent as they should be (in their advertising and other comms) about their payment systems and charges for different payment methods,, esp their large bias against Bpay. Eg they charge $1 for every Bpay transaction (an extra 5% if you are paying $20/month or 10% if $10/mth), automatically sign you up to Direct Debit when you join and tell you to contact them directly to g...
Very helpful people with a great economic plans to suit; my wife and I have not had a single problem since switching to Moose. No dropouts, download speeds are fine.
Would highly recommend!
After such a nightmare experience with another company, I am so happy with Moose mobile. My sim card arrived earlier than expected and when it came time to setting it up, it was done within 2 minutes. The easiest experience I've had with new SIM cards! The coverage has been fantastic and the cheaper rates Moose offer is amazing. I have been recommending Moose to so many people and will continue doing so.
This is definitely the best supplier going.
We are currently with Telstra for our broadband but not real happy, will swap over to Moose as soon as our current contract expires. I have found Moose to be extremely helpful and an actual person as well to speak to which is an added bonus
Australian owned Telco - Moose Mobile.
Am liking Moose Mobile which uses Optus, is good to know I can contact customer service if any issues, is a month by month so not locked in phone signal coverage is not good where I live but that applies to opposition to, was simple set up and like monthly bill for the month not some strange situation where the month starts in the middle of the month with others, would like to have data that runs out or reduces to a minimum amount once the data is used so no extra surprise bills or data rollover. No credit card charges either.
Lucky to have found you!! Game changer to say the least !! Very happy
Sooooo great!! No fuss / great value / easy communication - straight through to Australian operators - easy to understand .. Eager to help and no miscommunication or having to explain everything 6 times ... Love love love
Excellent Australian Based Provider
Extremely happy with MOOSE
Excellent network coverage. We left our previous provider for lack of coverage and difficulty with support based on sub continent. Moose customer support is based in Australia and very easy to contact and the service from then is tops. The mobile plans are extremely reasonable. Very pleased with Moose.
Glad I made the switch
I switched to Moose Mobile from my previous provider whom I've been with for decades. I was looking for timely customer service, range of plans and decent reception coverage. Moose Mobile has satisfied all 3x areas. I have reduced my phone costs by 50%.
Great being able to talk to friendly & helpful staff who resolve issues promptly!
Quite a contrast with a certain dominant telco who were (ironically) incommunicado more often than not. Thumbs up.
Although l have been with Moose for a short time l haven't had a single problem. I couldn't believe the great value for my money. Very happy. Thanks Moose. I can see myself sticking with Moose for a very long time. Cheers Sue
Great service. Great value.
Made the switch from Telstra a few months ago and am so glad I did.! The sign up process was super simple and I received my Sim within a couple of days. The switch-over was smooth with no issues and I was able to port my number. The Optus network coverage (metro areas as haven't been regional/country) has been great and I've experienced no drop-outs and such and no problems with data speeds . I LOVE the price I'm now paying compared to the overpriced (and recently increased) plan I was on with Telstra, not to mention the customer service also f...ar surpasses that of Telstra as the two times I've needed to speak with Moose I've actually been able to get through to speak with a person and was connected to them straight away. I've wanted to move away from Telstra for quite some time so am very happy to have found Moose Mobile... so far, so great - and would recommend them, for sure.
Never a single blip that isn't due to network-wide issues. And that was just once. Excellent reliability and value. Can't comment on customer service performance as happily I've had no need to call upon it.
Switched over a few months ago from an overpriced mobile Telstra plan to a Moose plan which is 4 times cheaper with double the data. Never had any problems and coverage is excellent (NSW). Kept my number and the switch-over was done by Moose in a couple of hours. 10/10.
Questions & Answers
How I have just switched over from Telstra to Moose today. When I was with Telstra all of my messages came as written texts or in audio format, which meant no more calling 101 to retrieve messages. Does Moose offer this service so i do not have to ring 321 to retrieve massage? If so how do I set it up on my Samsung S10e, please? Thank you in advance. Cheers Bob.
Sorry Bob,I use my mobile only for emergencies.I can't answer your question.
Unfortunately we don't have the voice to text or visual voicemail services that Telstra has, so if you'd like to listen to your voicemail message you will need to call 321 each time.
If these features do become available to our customers in the future we'll be sure to let you know ahead of time.

Thank you for letting me know
Just wondering if Moose Mobile was going to offer the use of eSim cards? I want to be able to use my Samsung smart watch independant of having to have my phone on me at all times. If so, any idea on when this might become available? Thanks.
While eSIM is definitely something we'd like to support, it's not currently available for wholesalers on the Optus network, only Optus themselves.
That being said, as the technology becomes more widespread and accessible, there's a good chance we'll be offering eSIM support in the future. Currently there's no ETA on this product, but when it does become available we'll be sure to let our customers know ahead of time.

Thank you very much for replying to my query. Much appreciated.
Can I send and receive SMS via VoWi-Fi?
Currently the VoWiFi feature from Optus only provides calling over a WiFi network. SMS and MMS will still require a connection to the mobile network.
However, you'll still be able to use internet only chatting apps and platforms such as WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Skype, etc, while connected to your WiFi as an alternative if you aren't connected to your local tower. However, in most instances, you'll always have enough coverage to send and receive SMS and MMS.
