When I first got a mobile phone 15 years ago there weren’t too many options out there for prepaid plans, choices were far and few between to say the least! But now as new prepaid plans are rolled out by the major networks it becomes increasingly clear that more consumers are starting to see ‘the light and switching from post paid plans.
The reason more people are starting to consider prepaid mobile plans is because the network providers are becoming increasingly ambitious. Unfortunately for many the opinion is that prepaid is second rate to postpaid, well I am hear to tell you that this is certainly not the case. You only have to look at Woolworths Mobile Prepaid Plans to see what you’re missing out on.
If you’re a prepaid customer then please do let us all know why you chose your plan. I’d love to hear your thoughts; all you have to do is pop your experiences down in the comment section below. If you’re still not convinced then here’s why you need to seriously consider switching plans. Make sure you take all of this in because I think it will end up saving you money.
Often people, incorrectly, believe that if they have a prepaid mobile plan they will get a worse level or service. The truth is that you get the same network coverage as another plan if you choose one of the more reliable providers such as Woolworths.
Prepaid you will give a wealth of freedoms, so much that you might not actually end up using them all. One of the biggest freedoms is that you can switch your plan when ever you choose, it’s completely up to you because you’re not tied in to a contract. For me I love this because when I go travelling I can switch the plan I use or even just pick up another sim card to use overseas – this is key because you won’t be paying for the service back home at the same time.
Another misconception is that prepaid is more expensive that postpaid, this is completely not true. With prepaid you can save quite a lot of money, even with a similar plan being offered as postpaid. Don’t believe this is true? Look closely in a brochure for the mobile plans that are on offer from the top service providers.
I now only use prepaid and can’t see that changing anytime soon. If you’re on a postpaid plan I implore you to check out your options before you renew your contract.
