 ► How does a My Mobile Broadband plan work?

If you exceed the data included in your base plan, we'll increase it by 1GB for a flat fee of $10, just for that monthly billing period.

Furthermore, each time you use more than your additional 1GB level within your monthly billing period, we'll just move you up to the next 1GB level and you'll only incur an extra $10 charge for each level you use – instead of a huge excess usage fee!

The next month we'll automatically reset you back to your base plan level. Simple!

If you go over your included data, each additional 1GB level only costs $10

Show me an example

You've committed to a base plan of 1GB of data, and you exceed it.

We'll automatically move you up to the next 1GB level, giving you an additional 1GB of data to use that monthly billing period for just $10.

 ► Alerts: for your peace of mind

To further protect you from unforeseen excess charges, we'll send you usage alerts letting you know when you've used 50%, 85% and 100% of your base plan's included data and when you've used 85% and 100% of your additional levels' data.

Not only will alerts help to prevent bill shock, you'll get an idea of whether you need to change to a plan that better meets your needs.

Please note that alerts may take from 24 to 48 hours to arrive.

 ► My Account to help you monitor your usage

You can easily manage your spend by checking usage and getting notifications when you've reached 85% and 100% of your data usage, online with My Account.

The usage meters in My Account will let you know:

  • How much of your included data you have used
  • At what point you'll be given an additional 1GB of data
  • How much more data you'll have to use for the rest of your monthly billing period
  • How much more you can expect the extra data levels to cost

Please note that usage notifications may take from 24 to 48 hours to appear in My Account.
