Common questions about Boost

Do I need a special handset in order to connect to the Boost network?

Not really. Phones that work on the Boost network are pretty common. So long as your handset was bought in Australia you should be OK. Just double check yours accesses the 1800 MHz frequency. It’ll need to to work. If it ALSO works on 700 MHz that’s even better. And remember, to get 4G speeds, it needs to be 4G compatible.

How much is shipping if I buy the Boost SIM online?

You will be pleased to know that Boost will ship you your SIM free, if you buy it online.

Does recharging early extend your existing credit with Boost?

Your plan does not reset if you recharge early, but it does reset your plan date.

Note: Boost plans include data rollover. If you recharge with $30, $40 or $50 recharge before your current credit expires, any unused data will roll over for use in the next month. Your data is only rolled over once and it will be used first before your included data.

Does an Australian Boost SIM work in New Zealand?

In order to access prepaid international roaming in New Zealand, a customer needs to purchase a Boost “ADD ON”. Each New Zealand call costs $1.50 whether you’re the one sending or receiving them.

If you don’t want to accept incoming calls ( to save money, ) you can contact Boost and have the calls sent to voicemail instead for the period you’re overseas.

It is free to receive SMS messages, but it costs $.65 to send them. Data Roaming and Mobile Data need to be turned off. All data charges will cost $3/MB while you’re overseas.

I’m sure you can see that while it’s possible to use Boost in NZ, there are better ways to spend your money and more efficient methods of achieving that goal.

What speeds can I expect from my Boost 4G connection?

The speeds you get will vary depending on a number of factors including where you are, what phone you have, how many people are trying to get 4G data etc. You should get somewhere between 2 & 50 Mbps. That’s pretty fast.

What is 4GX and will I get 4GX with Boost Mobile?

4GX is what Telstra call their double data speeds. It’s often referred to as carrier aggregation. Essentially, 4GX is where a phone gets double speed 4G down to the handset. It can do this either by accessing two frequencies at once or other technical cleverness. The key thing is, you won’t get that with Boost. You’ll get regular 4G. We can only offer you our point of view on this : It’s nothing to worry about. 4GX is overkill in our view. 4G speeds are honestly fast enough.

Do Boost offer Data Rollover?

Yes. Here are a few key facts which might help :

  • Data Rollover is available with Boost on the $30, $40 and $50 recharges only.
  • You’ll be able to roll over any remaining data to your current recharge when you recharge prior to the expiry date. There is no limit on the amount.
  • However, be aware that data rolls over to the next recharge only. So any data that has already rolled over from the previous recharge does not roll over again.

What call types are included in the Boost Unlimited plan?

Unlimited calls and SMS to Australian numbers. You’ll also get free voicemail retrieval, free calls to 1300 numbers and free calls to 1800 numbers.

What are Boost’s International Inclusions?

Boost recently updated their international call inclusions and now offer inclusions on plans costing $30 or more per 28 days.

On the $30 plan, you’ll get unlimited calls to 10 selected countries, 100 minutes to 40 other selected countries and 100 texts to 50 selected countries.

On the $40 or $50 plan, you’ll get unlimited calls to 15 selected countries, 100 minutes to 35 selected countries and 100 texts to selected countries.

See Boost’s website for details on those rates, they are subject to change from time to time

How can I check my usage?

The simplest way to check your usage is to get the Boost App or dial #111# on your phone.

Boost will send you text messages at 50%, 85% and 100% of your usage. It’s the law in Australia. They have to. Careful though, there is a delay between your usage and your receipt of the text message. Make sure you don’t run out of credit !

How do you add Boost credit to your phone?

Once you’ve activated your number, there are a few ways you can recharge your account. You can follow the prompts which will take you through the step by step process using any of these methods:

  • Boost’s App – you’ll need to make sure you have WiFi turned off
  • Dial #111# on your phone
  • Go to care.boost.com.au in your phone’s browser – again make sure you’ve got WiFi turned off
  • If you’re on a desktop or another device other than your phone, you can also go to recharge.boost.com.au

Where will I get 4G with Boost? (What’s their coverage like?)

You’ll get it in every capital city around Australia. Also in around 600 regional areas, all the major airports and suburbs surrounding the major cities.

Boost are the only phone company in Australia, apart from Telstra, who have access to the whole, entire, unfetterd Telstra Mobile Network. That gives them roughly double the square Kilometer coverage footprint of any other network, other than Telstra themselves.

Is Boost’s data still charged for in Per MB chunks?

You’ll be charged per kB for your data sessions.

Boost Review - Should you go with them?

Boost Mobile offer unique, incredible value on Telstra’s full, entire Mobile Network. And now Boost are faster than ever – with 4G data. If you live in an out of town area and you want affordable 4G data, look no further than Boost.

What's good

  • Best value access to Telstra’s Mobile Network
  • The only phone company to offer full Telstra access
  • And now Boost offer even faster, 4G data
  • Bring your existing phone number
  • Completely predictable cost since Boost are prepaid

What's bad

  • No 4GX ( double 4G ) speeds
  • Also consider Amaysim on Optus’ 4G network

  

Boost provide access to the full Telstra 4G network footprint

The key things you need to know about Boost

  • They offer exclusively prepaid plans
  • Current line up includes SIMs and recharges. (See below for infographic on how they tie together.)
  • They’re youth focused but don’t be fooled by the brand. Boost’s plans are good value whatever your age.
  • Boost are the only phone company which resell the full entire Telstra Mobile Network.
  • Boost is privately owned and are in partnership with Telstra.
  • Boost also offer nice to have plan features. They include streamed audio and data rollover facilities. ( We have details of the way Boost’s data rollover works, below.)

 

Compare Boost with

Belong Mobile and with others on Vodafone and Optus networks.

  • Belong Mobile also use ‘a part of’ the Telstra Mobile Network, also sell plans with 4G data and offer a postpaid alternative.
  • Boost’s plans appear to be deliberately aligned with Belong’s to offer a choice of prepaid / postpaid and data options.
  • However, Boost are the only phone company which offer full access to the Telstra Mobile Network – the same network you’d get if you went direct to Telstra themselves.
  • Boost are an MVNO.

 

A bit more detail

Boost Mobile is a prepaid phone network brand which operates in a number of markets around the world. Notably, they have plans available in the USA and Australia. In our view, Boost’s plan range is one of the best on the Telstra’s Mobile Network. Like most phone companies, Boost now offer 4G data speeds.

 

In Australia, Boost’s plans are known for 3  key features:

  • They offer an exclusively prepaid range – no contracts required :

    Boost are a prepaid only plan provider. If you’re not sure on the differences between prepaid and postpaid, we have an article which explains the differences.
  • Boost use Telstra’s Mobile network:

    Boost Mobile Australia the only phone companies in Australia which operate on the full Telstra ‘retail’ network. Others have access to a component of the Telstra Network – including Belong Mobile, Aldi Mobile and Cmobile. The Mobile Network that these other providers have access to use covers 99% of the population or 2.5m square Km . That’s about half of the coverage footprint you’ll get with Boost.
  • 4G Data:
    
Not sure what 4G is ? Read our explanation of 4G / LTE.  Boost now offer 4G data speeds. Boost is Telstra’s special favorite and they got the fast data speeds that Telstra offer on this network months before the competition.
  • All their plans include ‘unlimited’ (voice and SMS in Australia) options :
    
Boost offers many different unlimited prepaid plans at different prices so you can buy what you can afford. For many, shelling out $40 per month, in advance is a cost they would rather not incur. Some get paid weekly and can’t afford to pay for an entire month all at once. For these people, Boost’s 7 day / $10 plan offer great coverage and a more affordable payment schedule.
  • Great promotions :
    
Keep your eyes peeled on the plan list above. Boost regularly have promotions including regular double data and 50% off first month deals.
  • Focused on youth marketing :
    
Boost focus on the ‘Young’ and ‘Active’ segment, sponsoring a number of cool music events and action sports athletes. Don’t be fooled, however. Even if you don’t meet the description of the marketing and you are an 80 year old grandmother, you can still get the benefit of access to the Telstra 4G network and Boost’s amazing $40 Unlimited with Boost.
  • All plans have a 28 day expiry :
    
Many alternatives now offer 30 day recharges. It may not seem like much of a difference but it can mean one or two more recharges a year or a difference of 6% in your costs.

Installing and using your phone company’s self service app is the number 1 way you can improve your own level of customer satisfaction.

 

Boost’s Streamed Audio Plan Inclusions

Boost have a reputation not just for value but for innovating their plan range. Not to be outdone by Optus Prepaid, Boost Mobile added streamed audio to their entire suite some time ago, too. That means you can :

  • Stream Apple Music data free at up to 512 mbps.
  • Note, you will need an existing Apple Music account. You can sign up to a trial account to test the service if you do not have one.

Streamed audio is just one of the entertainment services which are now available in Australia on phone plans. You might be surprised both how many people have a streamed audio account (it’s in the millions of Australians) and how much data you can save when you’re allowed to listen to it data free.

 

More detail on Boost’s data rollover

The way phone companies sell data makes me laugh. If you don’t use the data you buy by the end of the month, they take is away from you. Imagine if you bought a pizza in a restaurant and the waiter came along to remove it from the table at 8PM. ‘Sorry sir, you had to eat it before now.’

Luckily, some phone companies, notably Belong Mobile and Boost are trying to impart some fairer approaches to the management of data. Boost’s plans now include data rollover.

  • You can roll over as much data as you want to :
    If you finish the month with 3 GB spare data, it’ll roll over to the next month.
  • But it only rolls over once :
    It won’t keep rolling over forever. ( There is a scheme which does that, it’s called a data vault and Belong Mobile offer it. )

 

How to get started with Boost

  • Buying online from Boost Australia is easy :
    • Shipping is free and likely to arrive next day.
    • You can keep your existing phone number or get a new one.
    • You can choose the right sort of SIM card for you – e.g. Nano SIM for new iPhones.

The process of finding, activating and using a prepaid SIM is the same for Boost Mobile as any other phone company.

 

Boost’s International Rates

Like data, International calls seem to get cheaper every year. Boost provide some international call and text inclusions on plans costing $30 or more per 28 days.

  • On the $30 plan, you’ll get Unlimited calls to 10 Countries, 100 minutes to 40 other countries and 100 international SMS.
  • On the $40 or $50 plan, you’ll get unlimited calls to 15 countries, 100 minutes to 35 selected countries and 100 SMS to 50 countries.

 

How is Boost’s customer service ?

In particular, can we please remove the reference to email as this is not a customer service channel (its there purely for those that wish to lodge a complaint).

As you’ve suggested, we have our online FAQ’s and user form. Customers can also speak to our Live chat team any time – they are available 24/7. Alternatively, they can call customer support on 1258881 8am-9pm 7 days a week.
