Are Internode's 4G mobile plans good value?

How do Internode's new 4G phone plans stack up against other providers' no-contract, BYO-phone 4G plans?

Optus recently switched on its first 4G sites in Adelaide, and South Australia-based service provider Internode (now part of iiNet) has begun offering 4G service on its NodeMobile plans.
 
But how do they stack up against other providers' no-contract, BYO-phone 4G plans?

[CORRECTION: 

For the Internode $30 plan, the table originally incorrectly stated  2000* for Standard SMS. This has been corrected to Unlimited.

For the Internode $45 plan, the table originally incorrectly stated 3200 Standard SMS. This has been corrected to Unlimited.]

 
Please note that classification like  ‘Extra Small'  and "small" are our arbitrary classifications, not the service providers' terminology. Our objective was to present plans broadly comparable to Internode's. Plans shown may involve additional inclusions. Providers may offer other plans not shown here.
 
So the Internode plans - which are broadly similar, though not identical to parent company iiNet’s 4G SIM-only plans - look pretty good to us. The main drawback is that they are only available to Internode and iiNet broadband customers respectively.
