People you can understand!
Ive reached out to Pennytel a handful of times, Every time, I spoke with someone who was easy to communicate with, who understood my problem, and addressed the issue efficiently.
Telstra network for half the price
Half the price of others, very happy with service, live in country Vic. so need that coverage. Staff good to talk to and very helpful. Would recommend to anyone looking for good pricing on the Telsta Network.
So far so good
No dropouts yet, but we haven't been too far from home, this question will be better answered when we go on a trip. We have not experienced slow data downloads.
Great phone service
Very good and reliable network coverage. Have had no dropouts so far. Download speeds seem sufficient and faultless. All in all it is a great service. Can fully recommend Pennytel to anyone.
Pennytel is amazing! Easy and simple service that works better than all other providers I have used for a fraction of the price! Definitely would recommend am very pleased with everything.
Best mvno i have tried
very reliable very rarely are downloads slow to work. I only comment that a 45gb plan would would actually work better for us, but all good its still a good service
My coverage is good and I’m very happy with the price. The people that work there are very friendly. This is a good service if you’ve got children with mobile there’s no nasty hidden charges and so on.
Very pleased with cost and service. Have no need to change to a more expensive service when I have pennytel. Have had no dropouts and data download speeds are on par with other networks
Excellent. I recomment it to anyone looking to change their service provider.

I certainly recommend this service to anyone looking to change.

Pennytel a better alternative to Telstra
Network coverage is good I haven't experienced any dropouts. To be honest I have hardly used any downloads as most downloads are done on my home computer or Samsung tablet
Reception in Willowbank area is not good,1 or 2 bars max. is about the norm. Most people in our area have complained for some time about reception from Telstra and Optus.
Long time user
Since changing to Pennytel I have had no problems. Despite living in rural Tasmania, coverage is excellent with no drop out. Pennytel costs far less than my previous provider, and overseas connection is very good. My partner has also transferred and we would recommend it to anyone.
Only need service for basic phone coverage and so far haven't found any place where I didn't have coverage. I live in regional NSW and travel frequently to SA without any noticable dropouts.
Wont let you leave.
Transferred off a Pennytel plan back to Telstra and they won’t release the number over the weekend. They disconnected the number but won’t release number. So if you swap providers on the weekend you see screwed. Avoid these jokers, they have no idea

Do you have an NBN plan
Hi Barbara, thanks for reaching out.
Yes, we have NBN plans to suit every home, all with no lock-in contracts. You can view our NBN plans here https://pennytel.com.au/residential/#tab-2 or call our ...friendly team on 1300 232 888 for more information and to get started.
I’m strongly considering coming across to Pennytel, but I have some questions for you. Is your service capped through out the day? At this moment with Belong, my service is forever dropping, sending and receiving messages are delayed. Phone calls don’t go through or aren’t received and Internet access and streaming are at its worse. Will this happen with your service?
Thank you for reaching out. ...Like Belong, we also use parts of the Telstra Mobile Network that covers more than 98.8% of the population with 3G and 97.9% of the population with 4G. Whilst you should not have these kinds of issues on this Network, it is possible that if you are having them now, they may continue with a Pennytel Mobile service. However, if you did want to port your service over to us and the issue continues, we could investigate and work towards getting this resolved for you. Kind Regards, Pennytel
