If you're looking for a new mobile broadband plan and don't mind piggybacking onto the Vodafone network, Kogan has just reopened their offerings - and the prices aren't too bad.
It's been a couple of years since Kogan offered mobile plans, after they failed to agree to terms with Telstra a couple of years ago. They've since been picked up by Vodafone, however, and they've rejoined the Australian mobile market doing more or less what you'd expect: offering a hell of a lot for reasonable prices.
Kogan has two offerings, one with 8GB of data a month and another with 30GB. Both can be purchased on a monthly or yearly basis:
The move comes ahead of Kogan's intentions to start offering NBN fixed-line plans from next year. Neither of the offerings above have lock-in contracts. The terms and conditions do note that "Vodafone reserves the right to limit speeds to 12mbps" and that your connection will be frozen if you go above the data cap instead of being shaped. You'll need to have your own compatible 4G wireless broadband modem, too.
If you're interested in the plans and want the monthly option or the opportunity to prepay for a year, you can check out the details here. More competition in the mobile data market can only be a good thing (especially for those who need to work on the train a lot, like yours truly, or those who just need to get a month of data to tide them over until a fixed-line service can be installed.
