The two sister telcos, More and Tangerine, operating on the Telstra network, witnessed substantial growth in their mobile plans.
Andrew Branson, CEO of More and Tangerine, said: “Following yesterday’s widespread outage, we have seen a sizeable bump in sales across our mobile plans, with strong numbers signing up to our new eSIM offering.”
“ESIM allows customers to switch seamlessly and quickly without the need to collect a SIM from a store or wait for it to arrive in the mail. In today’s fast-paced world, we know that customers want affordable mobile options on a reliable network,” he said.
Kogan, a prominent eSIM retailer, recorded a remarkable 400 per cent increase in sales compared to their usual figures.
They reported that it was Kogan Mobile’s highest volume of eSIM sales in a single day this financial year.
Boost Mobile, another telco operating on the Telstra network, also saw a surge in customer sign-ups, with daily sales increasing fivefold and website traffic doubling the norm.
