Can't get MMS but good pricing

published

I chose Pennytel because it operates on the Telstra network and was far cheaper price point than Telstra. Customer service was English speaking and good. However, I can't send it recieve MMS texts. I have tried all types of settings on my MotoG4. Customer service could not with this, and it may have something to do with the dual SIM. Download speeds are efficient. I have noticed that call dropouts are mainly from Optus customers that call. Coverage is really good considering I work in a low coverage area. Overall, good network.

Very good

Network coverage is good. No dropouts so far.
Do not use downloads. Don't know how to.
Could not use the voicemail so turned it off. It came on too quickly and I missed calls until later.

Good inexpensive service

published

Have had no problems with coverage. Can access all the apps on my phone pretty much wherever I go. Bought the 2 Gb download plan, which is more than enough for my needs and was way cheaper than any other plan around. Was really easy to switch to Pennytel; had my new Sim card in a few days.

Good and prompt service

published

Can't really complain about Pennytel they thenselves do a good job but they are reliant on Telstra so similar issues apply there. So if you are after a similar experience to Telstra but without the pain to your backpocket, give them a go.

I am happy with the plan, so far.

published

I have had several phone drop outs, but this happened when I was with Telstra. I do not have a problem with down load speeds. I am unable to use my phone as a hot spot, but can access the net by using tethering connection. The phone is a Samsung J2 Pro.

Better coverage than I had with Vodephone & Optus but still sometimes have no coverage. Price for usage is great. People whom you deal with on the phone are excellent in giving advice and assistance. Great Company to deal with.

Good value plan for the money

published

Network coverage seems adequate but phone reception in my house, and indeed my street is not as good as I expected from a Telco that was boasting 98% coverage on the Telstra network. I guess I am in the minority where I use my phone as a phone. But I will say, it does seem to have less dropouts than when I was with Optus, even though my phone is showing no bars of reception. No problem with download speeds.
