Data Usage Guide

Data Usage

The tables below provide a guide to how much data you may use, depending on what you do on your mobile service. You should also keep in mind how you’ve previously used data services. The tables are created by Optus who power our service.

Web Page Browsing and/or Accessing Email – Without Attachments

Please note that web page browsing will vary depending on the web page you visit. More text and/or pictures on a page means more data is being used to view that page. Email size will change depending on the amount of content or attachments in the email.

Every day, but only a few web pages or email About 50MB
