broadband plans

We have 50 gb monthly allowance on our home broadband and 4 gb allowance on our telstra 4g wireless mobile. As we intend to go away for several months in our caravan does anyone know if I ican ncrease our allowance on our wireless mobile and decrease on our home broadband without incurring extra costs? I would have thought by now that Telstra would have introduced a wireless device for grey nomads that allows them to hook into their home broadband when travelling. Any clues? Thank you!

Hello, I very much doubt it, but I do not have access to Telstra's systems, to be sure.

Whilst I doubt it, you can ring them on 132200   or 133 933

or 24/7 Live chat    https://livechat.telstra.com/TCOM:Crowdsupport:Consumer

 

Hope that assists you

Re: broadband plans

The new Telstra Air may be of assistance to you. https://www.telstra.com.au/broadband/telstra-air/how-it-works I believe 25GB is the maximum available to the 4G plans. If you are out of contract on your home broadband I think you can vary your plan up or down. I am not sure however if there is much in the way of smaller plans than 50GB. Smiley Happy

Re: broadband plans

No, I believe that 50GB might be the smallest now...
Yeldarb is right, Air might be helpful, especially paired with the Wireless Broadband you already have.
I highly doubt that anytime soon you will be able to use your Fixed Allowance via the mobile network, mainly because the Mobile Network costs them more to provide the data over then the Fixed Network... and it is far more susceptible to congestion and many other issues caused by excessively high usage...
