Pay once and spend a whole year calling and surfing. Aldi offers new season flat rates for Aldi-Talk customers. But for Vielsurfer rates can be expensive.
Aldi has announced new prepaid rates for Aldi-Talk customers. This is an annual flat. From November 21 to December 31, 2019, customers can purchase a new prepaid package for € 59.99. After that, customers can make unlimited phone calls and text messages for one year.
Below average data volume
Discounts up to one month, customers pay five euros per month. This package also includes 12 gigabytes (GB) of data in LTE speed. When the volume runs out, Internet speed is limited. However, the volume of data is also valid for a full year, so the reduced 1GB fast Internet remains available per month.
According to an analysis by the Association of Telecommunications Service Providers and Value Added (VATM), the average data consumption per month is 1.6 GB per month, higher than the Aldi rate per month. Predictions from the association for 2019 are based on 2.5 GB of average data consumed per month.
Vielsurfer must pay
This will allow customers to use their data quickly and be slowed down in speed. However, at 8.6 megabits per second (Mbps), this is very slow. If you want to use the fast internet again, you have to pay. How much do customers have to pay for new tariffs, Aldi said in an announcement. For example, at the current rate, you can order 1.5 GB of additional data volume for EUR 4.99 in the S package.
Based on these figures, someone who consumes 1.6 GB of data per month will pay around 35 euros. For those who consume less than 1 GB per month, rates may be beneficial.
Update: In the older version of the article, the volume of data was called "Internet Flatrate". This is wrong and has been corrected.
