My notification refers to no excess data charges in Australia – what does this mean?
With our new plans, we don’t charge excess data charges if you go over your data allowance in Australia.
Instead, if you exceed your included data allowance, your speed will be capped at 1.5Mbps, and slowed further in busy periods. This means it is not suitable for HD video or high speed applications and means that some web pages, videos, social media content and files may take longer to load, but you can still stream video in standard definition, listen to music, browse the web and access social media, even if the experience is slower sometimes. The speeds you actually receive may vary depending on a range of factors including your device, location, user name and download sources.
