That depends on what you love to do on your smartphone or tablet. Perhaps you play a lot of games or stream video. Or perhaps you only use data to download emails and keep in touch with friends.
Here's our quick guide to understanding what usage actually means to you. But please bear in mind that all calculations are approximations only.
Things you need to know
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.

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.
