Home MVNO Boost Mobile responds to competitors with more data and more international calls

Boost Mobile doesn't consider itself an MVNO, but its major competitors are telcos and MVNOs, so it has responded to ever better plans with more data and international calls.

Promising to "guarantee" data satisfaction "this winter with new pre-paid plans", Boost Mobile is offering "more data and increased international call inclusions on Boost Anytime Plus plans".

Aimed at satisfying "the data hungry youth of today", and presumably anyone else of any age that wants value, Boost says its "Anytime Plus mobile plans will see an increase to data inclusions on every recharge with $10, $20, $30 and $50 plans, with increases ranging up to 10GB".

"All plans from $30 and up also include data rollover, with unused data rolling over to use within the next recharge."

Boost Mobile tells us it "has also increased the standard international call inclusions across the $30, $40 and $50 plans until 25 February 2019, launching unlimited international calls and SMS to 50 countries.

"On the $30 recharge, consumers will get unlimited standard international calls to 10 countries plus 100 mins to standard numbers in 40 countries and 100 standard international texts to 50 countries.

"On $40 and $50 recharges, customers will get unlimited standard international calls to 15 countries, plus 100 mins to standard numbers in 35 countries and 100 standard international texts to 50 countries."

Jason Haynes, the general manager of Boost Mobile, said: "We’re constantly working to give our customers more of what they want, and we know that data is key driver for pre-paid plan choice.

"Today we can comfortably say that Boost Mobile Anytime Plus plans offer the most compelling data inclusions on the market, on the best network, and unlike other prepaid plan offers, are available with every recharge.

“Boost Mobile wants to always support the hyper-connected data hungry youth of today, who will now have even more data than before, on the best network with the best coverage.

"This enables Boost Mobile customers to not only watch the content they want, when they want, but also where ever they want.

“Youth don’t experience life just being at home in your own town or city, they love to explore, travel and experience life, it may be to the next music festival, an amazing beach or even going camping.

"With Boost Mobile, they always have the data they need, on a network that provides the coverage needed to go with it.”

How will Boost promote these plans?

"To promote the refreshed plans, Boost Mobile will continue it’s GET MORE brand campaign, which challenges data hungry consumers to “get satisfied” with its latest offerings.

"Boost Mobile’s fleet of brand ambassadors will continue to feature throughout the campaign, including world BMX and mountain biking champion Caroline Buchanan, Life Without Andy’s Mitch Tomlinson and Christopher Kevin (24 Karat Kev), lifestyle influencer Chloe Chapman, and pro-surfer Ethan Ewing."

"From 3 July, all new customers will automatically receive the new core Boost Anytime Plus data inclusions when activating a Boost Handset or Pre-Paid SIM Starter Kit.

"Existing customers on the Boost Anytime Plus plans will have the extra data and international call inclusions automatically included on their next recharge.

"If existing Boost customers joined before October 2017 have not changed over to Boost Anytime Plus, they can switch to the new offer to get these inclusions. With more data, more coverage and more choice, Boost Mobile is the perfect mobile companion to see out the remainder of 2018."
