Changes to your Mobile Plan

What is changing?  

We recently sent you a notice to inform you we are making changes to our plans. We will be upgrading your mobile service to our new Small Plan ($55/mth, 40GB data) or new Medium Plan ($65/mth, 80GB data) from the date outlined in your notice.


Why have we made these changes?

We created these new plans to better meet the current and future needs of our customers. As part of our commitment to simplify our products and plan offerings, we’re moving all customers to our latest mobile plans.


What do I need to do?

You don’t need to take any action. The plan change will happen automatically. You will see your updated plan name and monthly cost on your next bill after the plan change date outlined in your notice.

I currently have a paid data pack. Will this be removed?

Yes, this data pack will be removed. Your new plan will represent more data than your previous plan plus data pack. Your new plan also includes unlimited talk, text & MMS in Australia to standard Australian numbers. 


I currently pay $10 for Peace of Mind data (speed capped at 1.5mbps after included data is consumed). Will this be removed?

Yes, this will be removed. Your new plan includes no excess data charges – see below ‘My notification refers to no excess data charges in Australia – what does this mean?’


My notification refers to no excess data charges in Australia – what does this mean?

With our new plans, you don’t pay extra 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.

You must comply with our FairPlay Policy and not use your service in an unacceptable, unreasonable or fraudulent manner, or in a way that detrimentally interferes with the integrity of, or causes significant congestion to the network. We may take action if you breach the FairPlay Policy, including suspending or cancelling your service.


Refer to this link for more information on the Fair Play Policy.


What if I don’t want my service to be slowed and would like to pay $10/GB for extra data?

If you would like more full-speed data, you can move up to a plan with a larger data allowance.


My notification refers to unlimited calls to standard Australian numbers – what does this mean?

This means that you are able to make unlimited calls in Australia, at no extra charge, to the following numbers:

  • Local and STD calls to a landline
  • Mobile phones within Australia
  • Most 11xx, 12xx, 13xx and 1800 numbers
