Very happy with the service

published

Had mobile service a few months. Always timely & helpful. Coverage great - much better than previous (new phone also helped). Changed plan and bought extra data recently and was processed quickly.

Reliability so far has been 100%. Download speeds are quite sufficient for my purposes.
Pennytel provides a 'no fuss' and efficient service that is excellent. All at a reasonable cost. No complaint from me.

Highly Recommended

published

Network is unchanged from our last provider which is and was totally adequate. I am now paying half the price for the same product, excellent. My phone operates exactly the same & kept my old number. I would recommend Pennytel. Lyn

At a quarter the cost (from my previous supplier) for the same service - brilliant!

published

I can't notice any difference from my previous provider in reliability or speed. At a quarter the cost, how can I complain? I have recommended Pennytel to several others but so far, only my spouse has "seen the light"!

Perfect for an elderly couple

published

Living in a rural area and dependent on mobile phones pennytel have provided reliable communications during this period and lessened our stress levels as well as being able to assist a neighbour when their phone service failed. Would recommend this service.

Service is working well

published

So far I have found Pennytel's service to be as satisfactory as my previous telco. I have not had any major problems with few dropouts and the data download speed appears to be fine.

Switched from Telstra to save some money, and couldn't be happier!

published

Besides my bill being smaller, I can hardly tell I've switched from Telstra. The only thing that is a little odd is the way country prefixes seem to work, or not work, when sending text messages.

NO follow up from technician in response to problems

published

Frequent drop outs while either receiving calls or sending them.
Lack of reliability with display, some icons work, some don't.
Requested phone be sent back to Nokia.
An application form by email was promised.
Heard nothing further from Pennytel representative after a week of waiting.
During same week was charged twice for mobile service.
Not impressed.

Pennytel is a first class service provider.

published

Pennytel provide an excellent service. It is totally reliable. Back up is also provided if needed. I am that impressed with Pennytel that I have influenced three people to change over from other providers. They have indicated that they are very pleased that they changed and are encouraging others to do the same.

Quite good Except can’t receive verification codes

published

Phone and data, customer services are good. Just don’t know why can’t receive verification codes from Google, Twitter, Instagram, etc. Can this be fixed? This is no good and troublesome being not be able to receive those codes. Otherwise, everything ok.

A great find

published

Excellent network coverage however I have rarely left home in the last six or seven weeks due to the corona virus and government restrictions particularly as I am over eighty.

Data downloads are fine.

bit annoyed

pennytel advertises "no contracts" on its webpage yet wont let me change my plan..
that is a contractual action performed by this company.
false advertising and deliberately misleading customers; much.
not happy.

Cheap but unreliable

published

I'm not entirely happy with this service. Quite often my phone doesn't ring when people call me. I know this because I discover a call has been made when I've had the phone right beside me and heard nothing. When I ask the caller, they tell me that the phone went straight through to the message bank. Also, occasionally I try to dial and am told "service unavailable". Sometimes texts take a long time to get to me, even a day.

I have no 3G connection I can not receive or make calls. I can not call you to fix the problem, I can not reset my password. I have been waiting now for over 26 hours and have finally received a response telling me to weighting over an hour a go now. I have a Telstra booster displaying 4 to 5 bars and none on my phone I have tried a different phone, same crap. I have a 91 year old mother with miled dim ensure 2200 km away that I have not been able to ring for 2 weeks and I don't know whether she is alive or dead. I have a business that has ground to a stop and I get no response to fix the problem.
