There's a stack of MVNOs out there – those mobile virtual network operators who piggy-back onto a telco's network to offer what are generally quality deals at low prices.
You've surely heard of all the major players – Amaysim, Kogan Mobile, Boost Mobile (which pretends it isn't an MVNO, but really is), OVO Mobile, Vaya and dozens more.
Catch Connect is powered by the Optus network, and it is the network on offer and the inclusions that differentiate each player.
It offers unlimited standard national talk and text, and various amounts of data.
There are three plans – 2GB for $15, 5GB for $25 and 15GB for $35.
Naturally, with the 99c deal on offer, which is available until 11am on 10 September, each plan is just 99c for new customers, after which the plan recharges at its normal amount.
Savvy MVNO users who always seek the best deal and haven't churned to Catch Connect yet might take the deal for 29 days and then churn elsewhere, but you can only do that so many times before you're not a new customer with any of the MVNOs offering special deals.
Indeed, you have to be really dedicated to want to stuff around with all of the chopping and changing, and that's why companies like Catch Connect, Kogan Mobile, OVO, Amaysim and others do these special deals from time to time as they know inertia keeps most customers connected.
So, if you're looking to try out a different provider, you're not on an existing contract and you haven't been a Catch Connect customer before, the chance to save some money is available.
