How Shared Data Pools Work

Combine any of our eligible Postpaid Mobile or Postpaid Mobile Broadband plans on the one bill to pool and share data. The data allowances of your included services are added together to make up the total value of your data pool. Once an included service uses up its own data allowance, it will start using data from the rest of the pool.

You will receive usage alerts for the whole pool, plus you can track your pool’s data usage via My Account or the My Optus App. If you use up all your pool’s data, you can add a data pack or wait for us to automatically top up your data pool with an extra 1GB for $10.

Check your critical information summaries to see if your plans can data pool. Don't forget you can change to an eligable plan at any time by clicking here.
