Calculate your data usageHow much data is enough?

That depends on what you love to do on your smartphone or tablet. Perhaps you play a lot of games, or stream video, or you may just use it to download emails and keep in touch with friends.

Here's our quick guide to understanding what usage actually means to you.

NB: all calculations are approximate due to different download file sizes etc.

Voice and SMS*

Standard national voice call rates 40c / 30 seconds (+ 35c connection fee)
Standard national SMS per SMS recipient in Australia 25c
International SMS per SMS recipient in Australia 35c

 

Things you need to know

The data rate per MB is determined by your most recent recharge denomination.

Your credit can be used for standard national calls and SMS to Australian and international numbers. Excludes calls to premium numbers (e.g. 19xx numbers). To access call and SMS capability, your Telstra Mobile Network SIM card must be placed in a call/SMS-capable device. Some Pre-Paid mobile broadband devices allow you to send and receive SMS on your computer.

All call/SMS usage will be charged at the rate in the table above.

If you recharge your service before your recharge expiry date, the new credit expiry date for your recharge amount will be the longer of either:

  • the expiry date for your existing balance (before you recharged); or
  • the expiry date for your new recharge amount.

You can use Telstra Pre-Paid Mobile Broadband when travelling overseas to keep in touch with friends and family. It is automatically available on your Telstra Pre-Paid Mobile Broadband service.

Here’s our quick guide to understanding what usage actually means to you.

NB: all calculations are approximate due to different download file sizes etc.

International Roaming – Pay as you go

International Roaming data usage $3 per MB (charged per Kb or part thereof)
SMS from any country 65c per SMS recipient

International Roaming – Browse Plus Packs

Plus $29 Includes 100MB of data 30 days expiry
Plus $85 Includes 300MB of data 30 days expiry
Plus $160 Includes 600MB of data 30 days expiry

You get an allowance of data usage in a selection of countries for 30 days from the date of activation.

Not sure how much data you'll need? Use our handy calculator to estimate your possible data usage so you can select the right Browse Plus Pack for your needs.

Please note that the data allowance in Browse Plus Packs cannot be used for call, SMS, or MMS charges while overseas. The data allowance also cannot be used in Australia. If you're not using a Browse Plus Pack, or your allowance has run out, the Pay As You Go rate will apply to all downloaded content.

How to buy

You can buy a Browse Plus Pack before you leave Australia or while you're overseas. We recommend using the following methods because additional charges don't apply:

  • Use the My Account icon in the Connection Manager (where available)
  • Visit m.telstra.com on your Pre-Paid mobile broadband device

You can also buy a Browse Plus Pack using the following options — but please be aware that data usage charges may apply:

The cost of the pack will be deducted from your Pre-Paid Balance and you'll receive confirmation of your purchase. You can check your balance via the My Account icon in the Connection Manager.

Things you need to know

Your data allowance can only be used in selected countries. If you use up your data allowance, or if you don't purchase an International Roaming Browse Plus Pack (or if you roam in a country which is not a selected country in which you can use your Browse Plus Pack) you'll be charged $3 per MB (charged per Kb or part thereof), which will be deducted from any Pre-Paid credit you may have on your service.

The data allowance in Browse Plus Packs cannot be used for call, SMS, or MMS charges while overseas. Check our itinerary builder to find out how much you will be charged for those services in the countries you are visiting.

The data allowance in the Browse Plus Packs cannot be used in Australia. Any unused data will be forfeited at the end of the 30-day period.
