Celebrating one million customers in the amaysim group

Celebrating one million customers in the amaysim group

amaysim's PR guy

In just under six short years, we’re stoked to say that we’ve hit a seven-figure milestone of one million customers across the amaysim group!

Reaching one million customers is the best early birthday present we could have imagined. To know that we’re backed by one million happy Aussies is a massive win for the whole amaysim crew, and proof to us that our commitment to offering truly hassle-free and great value mobile plans is paying off.

In case you didn’t know, back in January 2016 we bought Vaya, another mobile service provider in Australia. Since then both amaysim and Vaya have worked together as part of the amaysim group to give one million Aussies more choice when it comes to picking a mobile plan.

So to remind you how cool (and impressive) the one million landmark is we thought we’d share some of our favourite facts about our new favourite number.

1. It's two times the population of Tasmania – that’s right, with a population of only 515,000 our amaysim army could just about populate the Apple Isle twice over.

2. The number of times a bloodhound’s sense of smell is stronger than ours.

3. The amount of money one mystery man left stuffed in a suitcase in a pizza restaurant in Sydney in 2011.

4. The number of air miles a baby was gifted from Filipino airline Cebu Pacific after being born on one of their flights this August. The miles, which don’t expire, will allow the newborn to travel around the earth 40 times if they want to!

5. In pounds, it’s the weight a single cloud can get up to!

6. The number of cats you can cyberstalk on this weird website.

7. The amount you’d make in dollars if you started with $0.01 and doubled your money every day for 28 days (getting to millionaire status never sounded so easy – that is, until you crunch the numbers…)

8. The world record-breaking number of bees that covered 55-year old Chinese bee-keeper Gao Bingguo. Surprisingly he only got stung 2000 times.

9. The number of people SpaceX founder Elon Musk wants to send to live in glass domes in Mars within the next 40 to 100 years.

10. The number of living legends that made the awesome decision to join the amaysim family.

Thank you again to all customers in the amaysim group for their support over the past six years and for just generally being so amaysim – we couldn’t have done it without you!

And for those of you who are yet to join – the crew at amaysim HQ and one million other happy Aussies are waiting.

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!
