But this is a good deal!
they plant a tree every month you subscribe to them …ok
Hopefully they don’t rip it out if you churn to another provider
unlimited data nice!
20 mb speed cap
20 mb speed cap basically can do anything 🙂
Netflix requires 5 Mbps
YouTube requires 5-7 Mbps
Download apps, checking email is capable at 20 mb too. Quite good
Yeah faster than my old adsl 2 connection. Not much slower than my nbn.
I’ve been with then about 2 months now. Awesome service so far.
1 month so far and tbh seems to good to be true. Cynic in me doesn’t expect these conditions to last.
I tried it before the data access speed increase and even then it worked fine. For those its suitable for well worth considering.
So free for a month, but I suppose we have to give them a valid credit card?
If these are post paid, then do they do a credit check on you?
It’s a prepaid subscription, so you need to give a valid credit card and they do a $1 temporary charge. There is no credit check and payments are deducted monthly similar to something like Netflix.
Vodafone network for those wondering
“No lock-in contract, no exit fees
You can also pause your plan whenever you want.”
It says you can cancel any time???
I left them recently, was hassle free.
When do they charge for the upcoming month??
A week before the end of the month?
Does Netflix charge a month in advance? Nor does Felix.
Felix is a subscription service, you are charged on the same day every month.
Just make sure you cancel/pause before the start of your next month.
Been on the Felix plan for now over a month. Been using the sim in my 4G modem (Huawei B525s).
Genuinely been plug in and enjoy. I have no issues streaming Netflix and running my smart home appliances.
Just make sure you don’t go over a 1tb of data usage a month – that will raise some flags…
Do you know that to be a limit or is that just a guess?
what network are they on?
Apparently a limit was mentioned on their Fair Use Policy. https://www.ozbargain.com.au/comment/9846627/redir
Probably a good rule to stick with – wouldn’t want to abuse such a good deal.
Vodaphone network. I am in Brisbane and have no issues at all.
Mate unlimited means no limit
Even unlimited has its limits…
@avgbowlofpho: Don’t be a corporate suck up.
It’s easy not to call your product unlimited.
Seems using it in a modem directly violates the terms…
For your personal devices only, not as a substitute for a home internet service or in a modem. Fair Use Policy applies.
What is the actual speed when you test on speedtest? Can you post the screenshot? Thanks
I’m addicted to checking Speedtest quite often and it’s always consistent at 20Mbps down! Love it.
What kind of upload speeds do you get?
The max download is 20 mbps and the max upload is 20 mbps
Recurring monthly subscription Fee charged in advance until you notify that you wish to cancel. How advance ? Anybody know ?
LOL yeah they might take your $35 the moment you sign up
But will they refund it??
From their Felix’s Standard Form of Agreement (SFOA)
“Your right to terminate Your Agreement
You may terminate Your Agreement by telling Us at any time that You wish to do so or cancelling
Your Subscription via the Felix Mobile App. Termination of Your Agreement and cancellation of
Your Service will become effective immediately upon the expiry of Your current billing cycle, or
earlier if You request to terminate earlier.”
So you can cancel a week after activating and keep it until the end of your billing period without charge?
Is this prepaid or postpaid? Credit check?
Prepaid but charged to a card monthly and no credit check.
Pretty much like other provider’s auto recharge feature then.
Yep exactly, no difference to a monthly subscription to Netflix really.
Even Telstra post paid is moving to this scheme with their new “upfront” plans.
I want to move away from using hotspot from an old mobile.
What 4G modems (with a Sim slot) do you guys use?
Why do you want to do this? Any benefits of 4g modem vs phone?
Considering downsizing my internet connection to save money and mobile+ hotspot was my first option.
Mainly to use two bands (2.4 and 5) instead of the one from my old android phone.
I was hoping it’ll be faster and less congested than the phone. It struggles with two devices downloading at the same time (watching Netflix and downloading updates for the Xbox One, for example).
I use this Archer MR600 V2
So for all those asking, you can buy the sim now and activate later.
You simply download the app, enter your details, and promo code. You’ll have to enter a card number which it verifies with a $1 temporary payment but it doesn’t charge you yet.
The sim cards are sent via express post and you have 2 years to activate it once received!
Will it charge when it is activated or at the end of the month?
I just ordered one, didn’t charge me now although my valid credit card has $1 pending.
It says in the app $0 now but $35 for the next month. So I guess if you really wanted to you could get it for 1 month and cancel before the next charge.
depends on when they charge for the upcoming month.
Most companies charge mid month for the next month
@ollie2012: Billing cycles are monthly (calendar month) billed at the end of your month determined from the date activated.
If you’re super concerned (or trying to game the system for the free month) then simply pause the subscription as soon as you activate it to avoid being charged anything:
Two years to activate a month?
Wow that’s a lot better than Amaysim, could be worth having in the drawer.
(profanity), me and the missus both signed up like 2 weeks ago.
Think I’ll be contacting support. They can either throw us a free month each, or I can let it end in a couple weeks and resign up. Cheers, OP.
Not gonna happen, you can just port away to another provider and port back in with the promo code but why the hassle?
Support them, dont be an ass 🙂
Mmmmm, better yet, save 70 bucks by ending these SIMs when they tick out and sign up again.
These providers require the number be out of network for 30+ days to be considered new customer.
I’m managing 5 mobile numbers (mine included). In order to get this Sim, do I have to order from each individual mobiles?
You can order from just the one phone by logging out of the app and selecting the don’t have an account option.
Ordered thanks OP
I heard someone here on ozbargain that if we use a lot of data, like 2Tb, they can terminate the subscription. Is this true? Did anyone have this issue before?
Well if companies were upfront about what limits actually apply for “unlimited” services he wouldn’t have to do the experiment to find out what the limit is.
@PainToad: it’s called fair use and common sense.
@FutureTech: unlimited: not limited or restricted in terms of number, quantity, or extent
It should not be up to the customer to try and guess what a company determines “fair use and common sense” to mean.
thanks op, ordered
im getting it to test the network and to see how realistic 20mbps is going to feel like
since you cant replace your home nbn modem, with this, I assume most people are going to use this when outside their house
I struggled to use 20gb when I had a big month
it is very realistic. it will hit 20mbps no problem. very useable.
Can someone post a screenshot of their upload speeds?
Check out whirlpool: https://forums.whirlpool.net.au/thread/97x115w3?p=29#bottom
I found these two speedtests (not mine) in recent posts:
If I’m getting 15mbp up and 3mb down with kogan , does that mean I will get the same Felix?
Yes mostly likely the same result since kogan also uses Vodafone
Yep, they use the same network, so expect the same speeds.
That being said in areas where the network is better (more towers and less congestion) the best you’ll ever get is 20/20.
Presumably by using this code, we can’t double dip with a referral code $5 for referrer and referee?
Correct, can only pick one so it’d be silly not to use the first free month code.
Mbps, not MB/s. Please change title
