LycaMobile Australia Prepaid SIM Cards operate on Telstra’s 4G LTE Network as of 2018 and has very good coverage, with huge data allowance and international call package included.
If you are going to Tasmania, you MUST get the Telstra or LycaMobile SIM Card. All other telcos have less than ideal coverage there.
All Australian SIM Cards require registration on the Telco Website.
You must have a valid Australian Visa and Passport to register the SIM Card. SIM Cards can only be registered after arrival and can be done on the phone; no need WiFi or Laptop.
For Australians, or if you have an Australian friend with Australian ID, you can activate the SIM Card anytime online.
General Activation Information
Due to Australian regulations, it is not possible to activate SIM Card before arrival in Australia to get phone number. There is no requirement to provide an Australian phone number on any immigration forms prior to your arrival. We urge customers to check the form and it is always possible to enter a foreign number.
SIM Card can only be activated after arrival and passing immigration.
SIM Card must be used within 24 hours of activation otherwise it will be terminated by telco.
