Telstra vs Optus vs Vodafone: A Data-Driven Prepaid Plans Comparison

5.0 rating

To find the best Australian SIM card, you have to compare a lot of elements to find the best. This video is a follow up to the first comparison, taking a closer look at the data presented by us. Worry not, it will be a fun and insightful video!

It is quite a challenge to figure out which SIM card is the best. Some travelers care about speeds, while others are more interested in coverage. Some may be interested in getting the most data per dollar spent, while others are more interested in special perks, like international minutes.

It takes time to get all the perks in an overview. It takes a lot of time to compare this type of data. Luckily for you, I have done this research for you.

In my first Australia comparison video, I briefly introduced you to the telecom situation in Australia and did a speed test with the three operators, Telstra, Optus, and Vodafone. That is just one piece of the puzzle.

In this video, I go over several scenarios to find out which SIM card is the best for the said scenario AND which SIM card is the best overall.

Some of the scenarios I will go over are like if you want to spend 30 AUD on data, which operator has the best speed (taking 4-5 speed test into account), and which operator has the best international calls and SMS plan.

After all of this, you will learn which Australian SIM card is actually the best. The result may differ from the speed test comparison video.
