Quick verdict
More offers a good spread of SIM-only plans with practical data limits and competitive pricing. While it’s not the perkiest of telcos, More still offers some key features, including a 500GB data bank and eSIM support. You miss out on some perks with More’s cheapest plan, though, and support pathways are limited compared to other telcos.

More value for money

More offers a good selection of competitively priced SIM-only plans.

More offers a handful of SIM-only plans designed to meet the data needs of minimal, everyday and heavy users. Promotional pricing isn’t something that More’s particularly big on but you can keep an eye out for bonus data in the first few months of sign-up. In terms of plans, More’s cheapest SIM-only plan comfortably offers more than 10GB of data.

There are better-priced plans with more data from Spintel, Moose Mobile, Southern Phone and Dodo but these operate on either the Vodafone or Optus networks rather than the Telstra wholesale network. For a fairer coverage comparison, consider Tangerine Telecom as the closest competitor. For comparison, below is a daily updating list of popular SIM-only plans with at least 10GB of data that don’t cost more than $25 per month.

More’s next SIM-only plan includes more than double the data for a few bucks more each month.

You may want to consider Spintel, Moose Mobile, Southern Phone, Dodo, Kogan Mobile and Circles.Life for better prices if you don’t want the reach of the Telstra wholesale network. Otherwise, check in with Belong and Matefor plans that compete with More on the Telstra wholesale network.

From this next More plan onwards is where Telstra 5G connectivity is included, plus a decent data bump.

Consider an iiNet SIM-only plan and those familiar non-Telstra wholesale network telcos above for better data-to-dollar pricing, otherwise Tangerine, Numobile, Mate and Belong are Telstra MVNOs with better pricing than More.

Spend a little more to tap into even more data with More’s next SIM-only plan.

Circles.Life and Spintel have better pricing for Optus MVNOs, while Tangerine, Numobile and Everyday (Woolworths) Mobile have better pricing and/or more data on the Telstra network.

Those with heavy data needs may like the look of More’s next SIM-only plan.

Moose Mobile, Southern Phone and Circles.Life are solid alternatives if you don’t mind the Optus network. For those who prefer the Telstra wholesale network, though, compare More’s plan with Tangerine, Belong and Numobile first.

More’s priciest SIM-only plan comes with a stack of data.

If you’re after this amount of data, compare this More plan with AGL, Vodafone and Circles.Life, but if Telstra coverage is your be-all and end-all, consider Belong, Numobile and Tangerine as cheaper alternatives.

More mobile coverage

More has great coverage care of the Telstra wholesale network.

If you want the best coverage in Australia, you want either a Telstra or Boost Mobile plan, both of which use the full Telstra network. The next best alternative is a telco that operates on the Telstra wholesale network.

More is one of those telcos and its cheapest plans offer 4G coverage, which can technically reach up to 100Mbps download speeds under best-case conditions. Spend more with More, though, to unlock Telstra 5G access, with speeds of either 100Mbps or 250Mbps, depending on the price of the plan.

More mobile features and perks

More’s best features are a data bank, unlimited calls and eSIM support.

If you want a telco that offers feature-rich plans, you should look at what’s available from Telstra, Optus, Vodafone and Everyday (Woolworths) Mobile. More plans have a decent smattering of perks but some of them aren’t available for cheaper plans, including 5G and international calls. For eligible More plans, tap into unlimited international calls to 15 selected destinations: Bangladesh, Canada, China, Greece, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand, United Kingdom and United States of America.

International roaming is available as an add-on pack and CommBank customers can access cheaper pricing. Outside of those features, the two main other perks are eSIM support for compatible handsets and 500GB of data rollover for More’s cheaper plans or 1,000GB for the two pricier More SIM-only plans.

More customer support and satisfaction

Limited customer support options but decent reported user satisfaction.

If you want the best available support pathways, you want to look at plans from Telstra, Optus, Vodafone and Dodo. More doesn’t have a lot of support options, though you can take advantage of self-paced online support, send a message or chat online, or call for help on 1800 733 368. Impressively, tech support is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

There aren’t a lot of readily available customer reviews for More mobile on sites like Google, Facebook, Trustpilot and Product Review, but the user scores we did find are still comparatively decent.

How we review mobile providers

All of the 30+ telcos we track in our comparison engine are appraised using the same schema, where each is awarded between 0.25 stars and up to 5 stars overall. This five-star system is also used for meaningful categories, which starts with all-important dollar-to-data value on a selection of plan options (where available).

The next step is to weigh up perks and extras, which starts with factors like network coverage and 5G availability, but also includes other meaningful inclusions, like endless data, unlimited international calls, and data rollover (among other perks). For support, we check for a range of available pathways, from forums and social media through to phone support and online chat.

Finally, we check a handful of user-review websites to see how customers rate their respective telcos, averaging out the scores when more than one option is available. All of this combines to paint a picture of telcos that may rank highly in one, some or all areas.
