The best features we found for an amazing price.

The features and costs are visible on websites, but what's not visible is the outstanding customer service given to deliver this!! Phone support is great and I've never had to wait more than a couple of minutes.

Very Happy

Really good , was having some difficulties early on which were of my own making , that is , I use Wi Fi off a router at home & forgot to disable WI Fi when leaving home resulting in dramas using QR codes etc. Once disabled no problems.

Phone Reception

published

Very happy with phone reception and no issues with your customer service
Would like to see a hot spot service provided for ease of wi fi accessibility
I understand you use Telstra 4G & 3 G service and wondering whether their hotspot service could also be included or perhaps a similar system that you could provide to Pennytel customers

Coverage seems 95%. I was on Horrocks Highway, Auburn, SA yesterday - black spot near service station. Other black spots along that Highway as you get closer to Adelaide. Better than other carriers.

Better than Telstra

published

Since changing to Pennytel the service has been perfect.
Coverage excellent and data speed great, and, of course much more data than Telstra for half the cost.
Billing service great. Nice to get an email informing me of account being charged.

Don’t use much mobile data but can order more if needed. The data and reception is very reliable and the speeds are competitive with any other provider. I never experience drop outs or black spots works inside the shopping mall.
