Belong Mobile provides just the right combination of great coverage, flexibility and affordability. Running on Telstra’s 3G and 4G networks, Belong Mobile offers a post-paid service with plans designed to suit the light to moderate mobile user.

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.

The Facts

  • Data limits from 1GB to 30GB
  • Price categories: Super budget ($10) to medium (<=$40)
  • Networks: Telstra 4G and 3G
  • Service management apps: Yes (iOS and Android phones)
  • Support: phone, email, web site

Belong started out as a broadband provider before branching out into the mobile space to give customers the flexibility to change their plan at any time, whilst enjoying Australia’s most superior network coverage.

Belong has long focused on keeping it simple by offering three standard, bring-your-own-phone, postpaid plans. All Belong Mobile plans include unlimited talk and text to Australian numbers, a data cap and the option to add-on a feature for international calling to 33 countries

Belong Mobile’s appeal comes from the most important aspects of ensuring an excellent mobile experience — solid network thanks to Telstra and unlimited calling and texting with generous data allowances sans the high costs.

What makes Belong Mobile Different?

Apart from offering really cheap mobile plans that come with no lock-in contracts, Belong plans also come with inclusions that allow for unlimited data banking that you can either rollover to the next month or gift to your friends and family who are also on the Belong network.
