Mobile Broadband Plans

Mobile Broadband is an internet service via 3G or 4G mobile towers. There are three main mobile network operators in Australia – Telstra, Optus and Vodafone.  There are also many resellers of each network.

  • Mobile Broadband comparisons here

Whistleout are providing the comparisons. They say the following on their website
WhistleOut maintains a broad list of service providers and we endeavour to include at least the top ten service providers in every category so that you can make a transparent choice. When you see a ‘promoted product’ or a product with a ‘go to site’ button it means that WhistleOut is earning a transaction click fee for the referral. We audit the prices in our database regularly and we don’t alter the ranking of products in our organic search based on any commercial relationship.



These plans become shaped when you reach your data limit. You can not purchase more data. Ask for a price with bundling especially if your landline & mobiles are also with Telstra.

If you have a BIGPOND plan you are entitled to be ‘unshaped’ three times per year (regardless of your plan size). Phone Bigpond and ask to be unshaped.

  • If you have a NGWL (next G Wireless Local Loop – also runs your phone lines etc) service this is the ONLY plan that your modem is compatible with. NGWL is a 3G only device.
  • BIGPOND PHONE: 137663 (remember this is NOT a Business Account)
  • BIRRR is currently trying to find out more information about NGWL plans, we will update as soon as these become available.

Update 4/9/17:



*Please note, while all care has been taken in compiling BIRRR documents, we recommend that you check with your mobile broadband provider regarding your own plan and connection issues.

  1. I have the Vodafone 50gig @ $140.00 but that is never enough for us, usually add 1 or 2 $65.00 12Gig to it for the month, gets a lot to pay form a Centrelink Cares Payment though.
