Amaysim Network Review – The Good, the Bad, & the Ugly: Amaysim’s Sydney Network Tested

Amaysim Network Review

We are back with another network review, this time with Amaysim! We recently reviewed Southern Phone in Brisbane, and due to the positive feedback, we’ve decided to test yet another MVNO provider.

This time, I decided to try Amaysim for a week, while in Sydney to see if it lived up to the hype. Let’s get started on this Amaysim Network Review, here’s a breakdown of my experience, from the sign-up process to everyday usage.

Signing Up

I bought the Amaysim sim pack from my local seven eleven store, the instructions and sim were all in the pack provided.

Amaysim’s activation process was a breeze. Their website was easy to navigate, and I was quickly presented with a variety of plans.

I also downloaded the mobile app, as it was suggested by Amaysim to manage the number after the activation process.

I settled on the $10 for 10GB, 7 day plan, that gave me a generous 10GB of data, unlimited calls and texts, and a solid amount of international minutes.

Activating the SIM card took just a few minutes on their website. I opted for the e-SIM option as I prefer it more than the physical sim.

I appreciated the transparency in pricing and the lack of hidden fees, which can be a real pain with some other providers.

Amaysim Network Coverage and Speed

Sydney’s network coverage with Amaysim, which uses the Optus network, was pretty good. I travelled throughout Sydney West, Inner West and Eastern Sydney at the start of the week.

Speed tests consistently showed download speeds around 55-65 Mbps and upload speeds of about 10-15 Mbps.

Streaming videos, browsing the web, and using social media apps were all smooth and without noticeable lag. Even during peak times, the network held up well, which was a pleasant surprise.

During my visit to Northern Sydney, I did see a small drop in download speeds, as well as I did notice that my phone was not connecting to 5G.

That said, it’s important to remember that coverage is expected to change when moving across all of Sydney, and my experience may not replicate your experience.

Daily Usage

Using Amaysim daily was a easy. Calls were clear with no noticeable drops, and text messages sent and received without a hitch.

The data allowance was more than enough for my needs for a week, which included mainly streaming and social media usage.

As mentioned prior, my data speeds were decent considering I spent $10 on the plan, although they did not reach the max 100Mbps, it was still fast enough to avoid any lag.

Customer Service

Customer service can often make or break the experience with a mobile provider. Fortunately, I had no need to call customer service, as I had no issues getting my service up and running.

I have previously contacted Amaysim before though, and I’m happy to report that I had no issues then either.

Amaysim App Performance

Amaysim’s mobile app is another strong point. It’s user-friendly and well-designed, allowing easy management of your account.

From checking data usage to paying bills and changing plans, everything can be done through the app.

It even sends alerts when you’re nearing your data limit, helping you avoid any unexpected charges. They also provide 2FA and are quite secure when changes are made on your account.

Price vs. Value

Like I said, $10 for 7 days is really good. Compared to other providers, Amaysim’s plans are competitively priced without skimping on essential features.

The International calls and 10GB on this plan, make it a great option for those visiting for a week, and with other competitive plans, you can 100% get more value out of Amaysim.

Amaysim Network Review – Final Thoughts!

After a week of using Amaysim in Sydney, I can confidently say it’s a solid choice for anyone looking for a reliable and affordable mobile network.

The combination of good coverage, competitive pricing, easy process to set up and a great app to manage it all from.

Whether you’re a heavy data user, someone who makes a lot of international calls, or just need a dependable mobile service, Amaysim has something to offer in Sydney.

Would I stick with Amaysim in the long run? Absolutely.

It’s proven to be a reliable companion for my daily mobile needs, and the peace of mind that comes with knowing I won’t be hit with unexpected charges is invaluable.

If you’re in Sydney and looking for a new mobile network, give Amaysim a go. You might find, as I did, that it’s terrific value for money.
