Belong Mobile Review

With all of the new providers that have come onto the scene in recent years, a familiar theme has been needing to choose between price or reliability. Fortunately, Belong offer both. Belong are on the Telstra network, the biggest and most reliable in Australia. Their no-frills attitude however means they keep costs down, giving you everything you need.

Worried about paying for data you don’t use? Belong has three data tiers that allow for rollovers, thus rewarding careful users with more data each month. Their SIM-only plans come with various inclusions that can range from economically priced, practical plans to a fully comprehensive plan, if you have a little more to spare each month.
