Great deal for when you just need calls and texting

published

I wanted a plan for a child's first phone that had unlimited calls but limited data...this was it! Very easy to sign up, receive the SIM card and activate. It was such a good plan that I set up my father-in-law with the same plan.

Excellent service and value for money

published

Usually reliable doesn't seem to drop out any more than Telstra. Download speeds are adequate for my needs. Had Telstra for many years and have noticed very little difference between them.

You can still keep your Telstra number when you port across

published

I helped my mum switch from Telstra mobile to Pennytel mobile and it was as easy as changing the SIM card (once it arrives in the post) and calling a Pennytel rep to help me set it up in several minutes. She has kept her original Telstra number.

Great service

published

We have three mobile phones with Pennytel. None of us use our phones often but have found Pennytel excellent. Coverage is great in our regional area and for people who don't use mobile phones for anything other than to make an occasional call, the cost is good and, unlike some other providers, not a waste of money. The staff are genuinely courteous, respectful and professional - and not patronisingly so like some Telcos.

Coverage of the Telstra network at an economical price. More than doubled my data allowance at no extra cost soon after I joined! No problems with reception or download speed.

Speed could be faster for streaming, but is generally adequate. Coverage is spotty in Little River. Do have dropouts generally a couple of times a day but not serious if not in a hurry.

Was looking for a phone service for my mother that would cover her basic phone needs and Pennytel has excelled in these areas. It is also good to be able to speak to someone on the actual phone about any questions or issues you may have about this phone service.

Hi Bcollie,

This is something that the big boys have to release into our systems. We are currently aiming to have this complete sooner rather than later.

We will announce on our socials once it is available.

I have got 2 Galaxy A71 4G, living in Caspian Circuit, Point Cook, Victoria and I have got lots of problems (call drops constantly inside or outside the house) with other Telco that operates under Optus.
I already contact Samsung support and they told me phone is fine.
I would like to know if is a problem with the distance from the towers or I live in the black spot and doesn't matter with company I'm with I got the same problem. Do I need any Booster?
I know Telstra got the best coverage. Could you please tell me your opinion?
Kind Regards

Hi Joseph,

According to our coverage map we have full 4G coverage there. You could purchase one of our low end plans to trial this if you would like. My advice would be to trial first and see if the Telstra tower has better coverage than the current Optus sim. This does happen and is more common than you think - If that is still a problem then putting a booster in the house definitely helps. I personally live in a little bit of a black spot and used a booster on my roof and have not had any issues since.

Let me know if you need anything else Joseph.

Cheers,

Brendon

Hi Brendon
Thank you for your information, and I would like to inform that all the problems I had with my Galaxy A71 stopped since I change the network.
Now I am with PENNYTEL and I m very happy. No more drop calls and the voice is clear. My 2nd phone is now waiting for a PENNYTEL SIM card.
Thank you very much

Hi Chris,

Apologies on the delayed response.

We use parts of the Telstra 3G/4G network so we most definitely work in Rural areas.

Cheers,
