Aldi has officially switched on its low-cost mobile phone network, Aldi Mobile.

The network launched across Australia today and uses the Telstra wholesale network to provide its service.

Aldi Mobile customers can recharge their prepaid service online, via an upcoming mobile app, and through all 300 Aldi supermarket stores across Australia.

SIM cards for the service are available in standard, micro-SIM and nano-SIM sizes to suit all mobile phones and tablets on the market. Aldi Mobile starter packs ($5) and recharge cards will be sold in all Aldi Stores.

Users of the service can track their credit online, through the upcoming iPhone and Android app, or over the phone.

Aldi confirmed that all customers will receive a text message notification when they have reached 50 per cent of their credit usage "in order to avoid any unexpected bills."

Aldi Mobile offers two pay as you go plans, $15 and $30, along with a $35 unlimited plan that includes 5GB of data. There's also a $15, 2GB data-only plan with a 30-day expiry for tablet devices.

The $15 and $30 pay as you go plans both have a 365 day expiry. Standard national calls, mobile calls, calls to 13, 1300 and 1800 numbers and voicemail are all charged at the flat rate 12 cents per minute.

SMS messages are charged at 12 cents each, MMS messages at 35 cents each and data is billed at 5 cents per megabyte (MB) on both plans.

Aldi confirmed that customers will be able to switch between plans, for example moving from a pay as you go plan to the company's $35 unlimited plan.

Users on the unlimited plan will receive up to $10 to use on premium services including international calls and customer call numbers.

I am so fed up with the very poor service amaysim provides to very sick people like me who often need to call ambos. For the third time i have a faulty sim card from them and have had no phone for a week. Now with an Aldi sim and great plan, I am safe again in my own home.
