Catch Connect doubles down on double data for all 90-day plans


Trying to catch a break from all the MVNO deals out there is Catch Connect, which is letting Aussies get 90GB of data to use over 90 days for $89 in one of three catching new deals.

Watch out, Kogan, Amaysim, Boost, OVO, Aldi, Vaya and everyone else – Catch Connect surely knows it can't catch any competitor truly unawares with top value deals given the highly competitive market we're in, but the company can certainly try!

It's all about capturing the churning customer and getting them onto your service, be it for 28 days, 30 days, 90 days or 365 days, depending on the deals on offer and the telco offering them, and then hoping your service and value is more than good enough for that customer to stay connected.

Of course, each telco and MVNO is churning through new plans and better deals to capture all those fickle churners these days, as prepaid users who have cut the cord on expensive phone plans show their loyalties to whichever telco is offering the best deal, but that's life, and one of the joys of capitalism.

So, what are the deals being offered by Catch Connect, and when do the deals expire?

Well, obviously the deals from Catch Connect give you "unlimited talk and text to standard numbers in Australia for 90 days", and then give you a different amount of data depending on the plan you choose and the price you're prepared to pay.

  • The most affordable plan is $39 for the first 90 days, offering you 12GB of data over that time period, and as it is a special deal, if you recharge on the same plan after 90 days, you'll get 6GB.
  • The second plan is $69 for the first 90 days, offering you 30GB of data. If or when you recharge on the same plan after 90 days, you'll get 15GB.
  • The jumbo-sized third plan is $89 for the first 90 days, offering you a whopping 90GB of data, which is less than a dollar a day. Subsequent 90 day recharges give you 45GB.

As per usual with these plans, they're only on offer to "new customers only", and the deals runs until 2nd October at 11am, so new customers have a while to grab their bargain, which is handy because some will be on existing 90 day or other plans with some other telco and will probably want to run the clock out on those plans first to get the most value from what they've already paid.

Full details of the deal can be seen at Catch Connect here, so if any of the deals have caught your eye, you know where to go to get connected!
