Mobile Data Plans – Keeping You Connected

It’s an information-driven world these days. Thanks to the sheer power of Australia’s advanced and super-fast 4G mobile networks, it’s actually possible to connect to broadband internet when you’re out and about at speeds that rival even the fastest NBN service. Whether you’re carrying a compact tablet or a powerful large-screen tablet with you for work or travel, you’re going to need some way of getting connected to that Australia-wide network. Mostly so that you can keep in touch or keep working no matter where the day takes you. Using your smartphone as a hotspot works for emergencies. But if you want the freedom of getting online when you want and need to, that device is going to need its own SIM.

With that in mind, many of Australia’s mobile providers have started offering mobile data plans. They come in the form of a special SIM that you can use in your tablet (and your laptop, with an adapter) to gain access to speedy 4G broadband out in the world. And since you’ll need a data allowance big enough that you don’t have to constantly watch your usage – even unlimited mobile data with some providers – we’ve gathered all the essential info to help you compare data plans to find the best one for your needs.

Special Data Deals and Promotions

For starters, you can try Southern Phone’s network with their affordable mobile broadband deals starting from $15/month with 7GB of mobile data. Moose Mobile, meanwhile, offers data-only plan of up to 100GB for only $64/month, no lock-in contract.

Another option is Telstra, which delivers data-only plans from 5GB all the way up to 200GB with a lot of great perks, which is synonymous with getting a Telstra mobile service. All these plans are on a month-to-month setup with 5G network access included on the high-end plans, plus no extra data charges in Australia.

SIM-Only Plans

If you already own your smartphone and just want to find the best value deal to get you connected for calls and data, then a SIM-only plan lets you pick your provider and go. You can choose a contract plan that reduces the overall cost, or enjoy the freedom of paying month-to-month and being able to swap to a different provider if you find a better deal. You won’t easily find mobile plans with unlimited data, but in many cases the allowances are so large it doesn’t matter. Regardless of which you choose, you always get to keep your mobile number.

Phone Plans

If you need a new smartphone – or just want to keep up with the latest advances in mobile phone technology – you can grab one without having to pay for it outright by taking up a mobile phone plan on a contract. Get the cost of your new phone rolled in with your calls and data allowance. You can even swap out your phone every year for the latest model for a modest charge. If you want to be the first with the latest, a phone plan is the right fit for you.

Prepaid Plans

With prepaid, you always know what you’re spending – you set the budget and top up your allowance whenever you need to. You can bring your own phone and just get a prepaid SIM card to take advantage of some great deals, or you can buy and own a phone and then top up its call and data allowance as you go. Prepaid is the contract-free, flexible way of getting connected with the freedom to change when you want.

Data Plans

If you’ve got a 3G or 4G capable tablet or laptop you’ll want to be able to get it online when you’re out and about without the hassle of plugging in your phone or setting up a mobile hotspot. Having data access on the device itself not only frees you from having to search out Wi-Fi hotspots, but also keeps your personal information secure. Data-only plans give you a SIM especially for your tablet or laptop. That way, you can always be online wherever you are.
