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

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.

All promises have been fulfilled - have had no problems with coverage. As I am a small data user most months an added advantage would be the facility to carry over some portion of unused data.

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.
