Excellent coverage, no hiccups and, so far, no dropouts. I only use very limited downloads but so far have not had any problems either with downloading or with download speed.

Can't live without it
Absolutely love it no problems with coverage or internet recommend it to everyone and the price you can't go wrong for downloading it's very fast games play smoothly no drop outs
I have no complaints in regard to the service I have received also coverage is great and I have not had any bad experiences since joining Pennytal Staff were very friendly and helpful in getting me connected thank you
Great Service at a Great Price
Only been with Pennytel for 6 months, and we're receiving service in locations we never did with Optus. Great Price for telephone, SMS and data. International access, which we require, is included and not an additional cost like other telco's. Best value for money, couldn't be happier.
only wanted 1gb suits my use.Haven't had any problems so far
very reliable network.suits my minimal use for low cost.Have had no issues with network speed/drop outs.Former supplier,Testra,couldn't could not match price.Would reccomend for low use users who do not need to pay for what they do not use
So happy with Pennytel
So happy with Pennytel, no issues at all changing from Optus and better reception to boot! Cheaper than other major Australian telcos with better all round service and supply. Highly recommended
Excellent service and price
I have had no issues with network coverage.i have had no drop-outs I have had no issues with download speed. I have already been recommending pennytel to friends and family.
Everything has worked well
I am a senior and not at all technical, but I have found everything to do with setting up my Pennytel service very straight forward. Everything has worked as advertised. The small data mobile service is good value.
Best value for money Australian post paid SIM mobile service with FULL VOICE MAIL message bank
Pennytel's small data and mobile service plan to my mobile has been faultless since switching in March. It's only $10.99 (GST included) a month for very good reception and coverage leveraging the Telstra wholesale network as well as outstanding 2 minute uninterrupted voice mail message service. That's extremely rare among most post paid SIM offerings from various telcos. Most post paid SIM telcos only offer voice to text which is a very poor second as far as clear communication is concerned. I'm not a texter. I hate SMS. I needed to offer peop...le who ring me regularly that option especially as it's the main service for my very elderly parents nursing home to call me and they call often and a lot of things can't be communicated effectively in 10 second voice to text or the voice to text doesn't understand Australian English. There's no extra charge to replay and retrieve messages. Phones were meant for voices. The data and smart bits are just shiny add ons that we've got used to but I still use my phone as a phone and the voice mail is critical. There's no nasty voice interrupting when people are leaving messages on this service saying "you've only get 10 seconds left" and wrecking their train of thought. I don't need lots of data because I have WiFi at home and I'm at home a lot. This extra small service may be just right for you as it's only 1 GB of data but if you have WiFi this is the most affordable with bells on you can get. If you need more data and also want the message bank that I needed, just check out their bigger data plans. Oh and their call centre is more responsive in a much faster time than most big telcos.
best value ever
We travel frequently to Queensland and to south west NSW via both city and country towns .Before changing to pennytel we checked their coverage area even in the remote towns we were still able to get mobile reception. When down loading date the speeds are good enough for videos etc.
Great coverage and great people to deal with
Network coverage has been great and reliable with no drop outs and good data speed. I greatly appreciate the friendly courteous assistance given when changing from former provider and have no hesitation recommending Pennytel to friends and family.
The coverage is the same as Telstra. I have had some dropouts only when Telstra were fixing the lines in our town.
I don’t know about download speed as I haven’t use downloads as yet. I only use my phone to ring people
Update on my Pennytel.
I used Telstra before and found apart from your much cheaper prices the service was just as good as Telstra. I have found the area covered has been excellent and have not experienced any drop outs
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.
Great for mature lady
Found the network coverage very good , on a recent trip in the country of NSW , so far have had no problems at all , thank you , and keep up the good work
Questions & Answers
I am currently with Telstra. ? If I change to Pennytel can I still have a post paid service. Billed monthly and auto-deducted.
I receive a post paid service with pennytel. Billing can be set up in lots of ways, but mine is auto deducted.
BTW, I love how you can ring and speak to a person if you want to change plan size.
It is easy to log into your account online to check your plan, data usage etc
So glad to have moved from T******
When will Pennytel make WiFi calling available?
Sorry can't help you with that question. I don't use it for that.
I thought there Pennytel reps on this page
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?
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.
Thank you very much for your response.
I will follow your advice and I'm going to contact Pennytel.
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
