In an on-the-go, mobile world it's essential to stay connected. But it's also essential to keep potentially high data usage down. That's why we've put together some helpful ways to effectively manage your data
and stay in control.


Data Packs

Top up your monthly data inclusions so that you've got even more data to use each month on the things you like.

On activation you’ll receive the full allowance and be charged the full amount regardless of when in your billing cycle the data pack was purchased. A data pack will incur a monthly charge until you remove it from your service.

More about using data

What's using your data?

Many internet and mobile plans now offer data allowances that you can use on your phone or device to do things like browse the internet, send and receive email, and use other apps, like GPS, twitter and Facebook. Using such services can be useful and convenient, but it can also end up being expensive if you use them too much.

For example:

Activity Average Data Used
Sending or receiving 40 emails without attachments 2MB
Visiting 5 different web pages 2MB
Browsing Facebook for 10 minutes 3MB
Streaming 10 minutes of audio content 10MB
Streaming 10 minutes of video on YouTube (standard definition) 70MB
Making a 10 minute call on Skype (standard not video) 10MB
Uploading 10 photos 40MB
