  1. Ray Hernan says:

    The Vodafone coverage in Tasmania is very poor outside of the major cities and most used highways.
    The West Coast holiday resorts do not have any service according to Vodafone coverage maps.
    iiNet customers are being disadvantaged and now will have a lower standard of mobile service when ported from Optus to Vodafone.
    Poor choice iiNet!

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Thanks for the feedback, Ray!

      We always recommend checking our Coverage Map for our mobile plans, so we’re glad to hear that you’ve done that. Selecting the option for ‘Planned coverage improvements….’ will show you what is planned for your area as well, so its well worth giving it a look.

      – L

  2. Nick says:

    Not impressed with your publicity that makes no mention of whether there is the option to stay with Optus.

    As Ray said, in rural areas including mine, Vodafone is not sufficient. Your coverage map does not reflect the experience of real people here.

  3. James says:

    Any chance of bigger data allotments? I’m looking for around 150gb as that’s what I currently get with Optus.

  4. Gabriele says:

    What’s happening after six month.
    How much will it increase too??

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hi Gabriele,

      After the first six months have passed, prices return to their normal cost. For example, the half price $10 SIM returns to its normal $19.99 cost.

      – Leo

  5. Gary Turner says:

    Can l get sim only $10 data only for ipad

  6. mark stephen says:

    I want to know the cost per month after the initial 6 months.
    I am already a iinet customer for my computer.
    Will I get a discount to switch over from vodaphone?

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hi Mark,

      The cost per month returns to its normal cost once the six month period passes. For instance, the $10 plan returns to $19.99. If you have a mobile service with us, please keep an eye out for an introductory offer; otherwise the standard six month discount offer applies. There’s no other discounts for switching your mobile to us from another provider.

      – Leo

  7. Anthony Kesaris says:

    This new deal looks good but don’t want to join Vodafone as in my experience the coverage is patchy and doesn’t compare to the other networks,pity IINET didn’t partner with Optus or Telstra

  8. Robert Crigan says:

    Hi. Where can I find rates for calls to international mobiles and landlines? Thanks.

  9. Leonie says:

    Do you do data sharing?

  10. Sheridan says:

    What countries are covered in the 100 mins of international calls?

  11. Michele says:

    Do you offer any plans using Optus network?

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hi Michele!

      We no longer offer mobile plans over the Optus network. These plans have been retired, superceded by our awesome new plans via the Vodafone network.

      – Leo

  12. David says:

    I am on a $15 a month plan with 1gb data which I don’t ever exceed – does that mean you will change my plan to $7.50 p/m for 6 months and then revert back to $15 or have you have you used the change to Vodafone to increase the cheapest plan to $19.99 with 6gb of data. seems to be better for you but not for me -typical

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hi David,

      There’s no need to change plans right now, so you can stay exactly as you are. We’re happy to hear that your current plan works for you!

      – Leo

  13. John says:

    As I recall wasn’t iinet partnered up with Optus regarding mobile phone service which is 98.6% coverage?

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hi John,

      You are correct and customers on legacy mobile plans will still be on this network. Our new plans are a major step forward for us and we’re excited by the value that being on the Vodafone network brings us!

      You can see the coverage map for these new plans, here:

      Scroll down the page until you see ‘Coverage’ and make sure you select the option for ‘Planned coverage improvements’.

      – Leo

  14. Marie says:

    Rollover Data?
    What plans ?
    Do you have a limit

  15. Sam says:

    Does not tell me what internet speed does this service provide.

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hi Sam,

      Our mobile plans are voice services first, with data provided as a feature. Note that speeds on mobile networks are highly variable, due to multiple factors such as network congestion, signal strength and distance to the nearest tower, so no estimates are offered.

      – Leo

  16. John says:

    Do you data only sim for iPad?

  17. Colin says:

    I had to port out because of the way that FlOptus built their radio network in my area. Coverage maps said great coverge, but that could not have been further from the truth. It was deplorable, so forgive my lack of faith in coverage maps.

    Does Voda support WiFi calling on these plans? I went to Woolworths Prepaid because Telstra do support it on their MVNO plans – something FlOptus said they would do, but never did – quel surprise.

    If they do, I’m back in the stable.

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hi Colin,

      Sounds like you’re refereeing to VoLTE/VoWiFi (Voice over LTE/Voice over WiFi). This isn’t available on our SIM’s but we can take this into consideration, so thank you for bringing this to us!

      – Leo

  18. Leigh Owen says:

    Yes, had this very unsatisfactory conversation with iiNet about a month ago about Vodafone coverage and “Plan”. I have been with iinet/Optus mobile for more than 10 years and iinet ADSL/NBN for more than 15 years. Just so you don’t forget iiNet/TPG, no I do not want to change over to Vodafone and have poor service and bad coverage . And yes, I’m not happy with your call center in the Philippines. If you are going to act like the cheaper TPG why don’t you give me $10-$15 a month off my bill. As a customer I just what the service that works for me, not your bottom line.

  19. Miick says:

    Do you have eSIM available.?

  20. Paul says:

    “Our new plans are a major step forward for us and we’re excited by the value that being on the Vodafone network brings us!”
    In your own words, it’s about profit for you, not what you can deliver to your customers. A retrograde step with coverage, and if you do choose to be on a Voda network, then others are already cheaper than what you offer, like Kogan.

  21. Joy Porter says:

    Can I bring my existing Vodafone mobile number ?

  22. Derek says:

    Like some of the others above, coverage in many rural areas (including Tasmania) is very poor. Eventually, had to move. Its good to see you have improved your data allowance – I was only getting 2gb on a $20 plan, and would be hit for a ten buck fee if I went over.

  23. pascale says:

    my plan suits me fine, I don’t want to change anything. My international calls are very important and the 100mn international call is certainly not enough for me!!!
    So the question is: can my plan stays as it is?

  24. Narelle Craig says:

    Do you have to change phone numbers. I am already with vodafone.

  25. Sandy Stevens says:

    I am am iiNet customer of old. Can I leave my mobile plan as is? It’s just right for me. Pretty please!

  26. MArk Sutton says:

    Yes, new plans using Vodafone are cheap. But you get what you pay for! Bad move iinet.

  27. SteveB says:

    Coverage is less and overseas complications are not good either. I will NOT be changing from the Optus plan that I have.

  28. Stevie Ferreira says:

    Vodafone :/
    i was thinking about changing but will just have the same issue, vodafone have gotten worse in my area over the last few months.

  29. Guy Wilkinson says:

    Hi Leo
    Are you going to do the $5 per day international roaming like Vodafone does?

  30. WarrenJ says:

    I am an iinet nbn customer for 3 years,good stuff
    I am with another mobile provider with coverage wherever i’ve been, the monthly prepaid sim only price plan is $10 for 2gb data with unlimited local,national calls.
    will you be offering anything like that anytime soon

  31. Grant says:

    Leo, have you moderated out my comment about iiNet being non-cost competitive?

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hi Grant,

      Any posts that can be seen as promoting a another provider (even if there is no intent to do so) are moderated.

      – Leo

  32. Mr A Bruce says:

    Hello Leo,

    A family member who lives in the Georges River Council area of Metropolitan Sydney NSW has a mobile service already with Vodafone. They need to go outdoors to make a phone call. Their Vodafone internet access is unusable at their residence. This same family member has an aged relative that lives on the outskirts of Taree NSW. There is no Vodafone coverage at this location and they need to use roaming on some other providers network to use their phone. This is pathetic.

    Another family member that wants to upgrade their current iiNet mobile service that is provided by Optus will be forced to switch to Vodafone. This person does not want a service provided by Vodafone because of their third grade coverage. You will lose another customer.

    You say that Vodafone will fix the coverage issues but how do you expect us to believe that when they have been on going for years with no resolve?


    Mr A Bruce

  33. Cameron says:

    Vodaphone is useless in country areas. Very anti country people of you

    • Tal Waterhouse says:

      Sorry to hear that the network coverage is not the best in your area at the moment, Cameron. We will continue to work with them as out network partner to help improve nationwide coverage. – Tal

  34. Paul says:

    Hi Leo
    I’m in rural NSW and have NBN satellite dish installed, i am an iiNet customer for that .
    My mobile is with another provider and only used when I travel to town, when at home I use wifi calling through nbn as there is no mobile service available there. If I switch my mobile plan to the iiNet plan will my wifi calling at home still work
    Cheers Paul

    • Tal Waterhouse says:

      WiFi calling is not yet supported on our plans using the Vodafone network, Paul. Thanks for your interest! – Tal

  35. Neville says:

    You get what you pay for. Not interested.

    • Tal Waterhouse says:

      That’s a shame to hear, Neville! We’re always here for you if you change your mind 🙂 – Tal

  36. Kate says:

    What a pity this plan is with Vodaphone. No good for us Tasmanians so will stay where I am , thanks.

  37. Ken says:

    I’m super happy with these prices and Vodafone’s coverage in my area, I’m fortunate. 🙂

    My current plan allows me 1000 international minutes and unlimited international sms – is that something I could bundle onto this? And are there any discounts if I’m also using broadband via iinet?

    Thank you.

    • Tal Waterhouse says:

      Thanks for your interest, Ken! There aren’t any bundles available at this time however we’ll always aim to deliver more value and benefits down the line. – Tal

  38. Denis says:

    Hi Guys, Are you saying that I can stay on my current iiNet Optus plan indefinitely?

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hi Denis,

      Our Frequently Asked Questions section on our Mobile SIM plans page has the answer for you:

      “What happens if I don’t want to move to the Vodafone network?

      We do expect to eventually remove our mobile plans on the Optus network from sale. This means that new signups will not be available and existing customers will no longer be able to change plans within the retired plan set. We recommend you accept the invitation to move to the Vodafone network as early as possible to avoid any inconvenience. If you do not accept the invitation and your existing plan is discontinued in the future, we will provide you with the appropriate notice.”

  39. Janine Thompson says:

    Got my new Sim for the changeover to Vodafone. Have to wait a WEEK to be connected as Vodafone is doing upgrades. This is very much NOT ACCEPTABLE. Not having a phone for a week is unbelievable in this day & age.

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Hi Janine,

      You’re correct – this isn’t good enough and we’re very unhappy to see that you’ve had to wait so long! If this still isn’t fixed, please be in touch with us via with your details and mention your post here. We’ll have our team jump on this for you.

      – Leo

  40. Blank Philip says:

    After 4 phone calls to iinet, they still can’t tell me how to connect an apple watch to the cell network. apple watch SE

  41. Barton says:

    Plans are little bit expensive I guess.

  42. Janine Thompson says:

    Now 2 WEEKS without a phone. Was told on 10th November that my issue had been escalated and someone would call me within 72 hours. Now 5 days later, a bit longer than 72 hours and no contact. Can someone please fix this. It has gone way beyond a joke.

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      This is taking far too long, Janine.

      We’ve asked to team to step in on this one as a matter of urgency so this can be fixed for you!

      – Leo

  43. ben says:

    very bad mobile coverage are swaping t new sim, why swap to vodafone 3g? will be leaving iinet after 10 good years

  44. Tina Turner says:

    About time you offered eSIMs isn’t it.
    Shows your not moving with the times and client demands.
    You’ve partnered with Vodafone, and if someone signs up directly with them they do offer eSIMs, so why not thru you.
    Not happy.

    • Leo Yarnold says:

      Thanks for the feedback, Tina! We’ve passed your feedback on to the relevant teams and should we offer eSIM’s in future, we’ll be sure to publish this change.

      – Leo

  45. Kylie says:

    Can you set something up so its not possible to exceed your data limit in a month?

  46. Neale says:

    Optus to Vodaphone for existing customers appears to be a giant funnelling exercise for iiNet.
    I have had trouble with reception in my house (with Optus) for nearly a month now, my wife and I cannot make or take calls, have to go outside, not real good with all the rain about
    Wrote an email 7/2 received a reply within 1 business day but more or less saying go to Vodaphone and a link for me to follow up with Optus. Wrote 3 more emails 7/2, 10/2 and 13/2 and received immediate confirmations but no reply since, advised iiNet I pay them not Optus, why aren’t they aware of these problems.

    My daughter phoned 14/2 as I am over it, received one month credit for my mobile only not my wife’s!!
    Funny my first email and iiNet ‘s reply is shown in tasks in the Toolbox, but not my other 3. Just checked toolbox tasks and 2 open matters say contact customer to move to Vodaphone, no effort to check my problem, but said to my daughter can look at further credit once Optus problem is resolved(good luck) Optus were advising by message contact you in 3 days then 5 days and now won’t contact you until resolved. By the way I am located Inner West Sydney, not a regional area.

    • Leo Yarnold says:
