Gold, Gold, Gold and More Shiny Gold!

Look, we’re not going to lie, the feeling of announcing an award win never gets old – so being able to announce four at the same time is pretty awesome.

To bring you up to speed, the 2018 WhistleOut Awards were recently announced and we were blessed enough to walk away with four gold gongs #HumbleBrag.

WhistleOut Awards
  • Winner Best Provider, Mobile Plans for Kids (shout out to our UNLIMITED 1GB + UNLIMITED 2.5GB plans)
  • Winner Best Provider, International Calls (UNLIMITED 5GB = winner, winner chicken dinner)
  • Winner Best Unlimited NBN Provider (you do have to admit, our range of nbn plans are pretty sweet)

  • Winner Best Internet Promotion

The WhistleOut Awards recognise and highlight companies that have provided Australians with the best service plans and promotions across a broad range of phone and internet categories.

In a busy and competitive industry, the awards help consumers identify providers that have consistently offered the best plans over the past 12 months for particular usage needs.

look at those smiles!

WhistleOut Awards

“In the mobile space, amaysim won the WhistleOut Best Provider Awards for International Calls, and Mobile Plans for Kids. Their unbeatable prepaid value plans reliably offered unlimited talk and text at great prices, making them a great option for kids, while introducing unlimited international calls to selected countries meant users didn’t have to make sacrifices if they wanted to get a great overseas calls package.

“Already well-known for great value mobile plans, amaysim has also brought its great prices to the NBN and won the awards for Best Unlimited NBN Provider and Best Internet Promotion. We love the simplicity of their NBN plans, and the flexibility they provide customers. All amaysim NBN plans give users unlimited data and, importantly, no lock-in contracts, which provides peace of mind for anyone worried about getting shackled with long-term contracts.

“As well as consistently providing good value internet plans to consumers, amaysim also run great consumer promotions. Their July 2017 to March 2018 promotion of giving $20pm off NBN25 plans was a genuine long-term money-saver for anyone shopping for an NBN plan, and deservedly won the award for Best Internet Promotion

Celebrating nine amazing years!

20 Nov 2019

We’re growing up, but we’re definitely not growing old.

Our ninth year has been filled with awesome achievements, and we couldn’t have done it without your amazing support!

nine years strong

It felt just like yesterday when we embarked on an ambitious journey to shake up the dinosaurs of the Australian telco industry, with our BYO mobile phone proposition and SIM-only plans.

Fast forward nine years and with over one million customers catching onto the amaysim wave, it’s crazy to think that the best is still yet to come.

Whether you’ve been with us since day dot (back when the iPhone 4 was the hottest phone in the market), or have recently joined the amaysim family, we can’t thank our loyal customers enough for their support over the years, as we clearly wouldn’t be here without you.

still got our eyes on the prize

Between expanding our product offerings and enhancing the experience for our customers (be sure to check out the refreshed amaysim app), it's been an exciting year at amaysim HQ.

Not to mention we recently upped the data across our mobile plans, ensuring we keep our promise in offering Aussies greater choice when it comes to finding a great-value mobile plan that’s simple to use and won’t break the bank.

revitalised network agreement

As you all know, amaysim runs on the Optus 4G network, and mobile data is the fuel that allows our connected lives to exist. Data usage is only set to increase as we move into the future which is something we want to ensure is encapsulated in the type of mobile plans we offer.

amaysim and Optus have had a mutually beneficial partnership since we launched back in 2010 and in May we signed a revitalised network supply agreement (NSA) with Optus.

The updated agreement enables us to offer even greater products and services to our mobile customers, so keep your eyes peeled as we continue to expand our mobile plan offerings to meet our customers’ evolving needs.

Canstar Blue Awards

we love customer recognition

There’s always been a focus at amaysim HQ of doing right by our customers, knowing good things will come and although awards aren’t everything, from time-to-time it’s nice to be acknowledged!

To cap off a great year, we struck gold at the 2019 Canstar Blue Awards, taking home the gong for the most satisfied customers in the prepaid SIM-only category - shining a light on the amazing value our mobile plans continue to provide hundreds of thousands of Aussies.

What made this win even more special is the fact the Canstar Blue Awards are based on direct feedback given to an independent research firm by customers.

On that note, a massive shout out to our customers who continually give us a vote of confidence through loyalty and support – we appreciate each and every one of you.

let’s keep it going

Nine years in, we can honestly say we've never been more excited for what the future holds and we’re more determined than ever to continue delivering amazing value to our customers across both mobile and energy.

Bring it on!
