Brisbane-based telco Moose Mobile has released a budget mobile phone plan for $8 a month.
Designed for low-use consumers, the telco said its new SIM-only plan provided 200 minutes of standard national calls, unlimited national and international text and 500MB of 4G mobile data. The plan uses the Optus 4G Plus network.
Moose Mobile chief executive Dean Lwin said the plan was for users who liked to "keep it cheap and simple".
"With the inclusion of the $8 plan into our line-up, we now have something available for every Australian," Lwin said.
"We've offered high data plans from the start, but now there's a little more flexibility on the other side of the spectrum for those customers who rarely use their phone and are looking to save a little cash as a result."
Moose Mobile offers budget month-to-month mobile plans spanning from the $8 tier through $14 and $19-a-month offers up to a $49 plan, which includes unlimited local calls, unlimited texts and 30GB data on the Optus 3G Plus network.
