Check out Better Life Mobile's data-only plan below

Better Life Mobile has a single mobile broadband plan with 180-day expiry and 12GB of data.

Better Life Mobile review: What we think

Better Life Mobile's mission statement claims that all Australians deserve a decent phone plan and Internet connection, no matter what their social status might be. They only sell a single mobile broadband plan, 12GB for $88 that lasts 180 days.

Apart from its long expiry period, this plan is nothing too special. A little over $7 for each 1GB of data is only slightly better than the default $10, and even with the long expiry it's unlikely to stretch very far unless you have extremely modest data needs.

Compare your options with our mobile broadband comparison table to see if you can't find a long expiry plan that offers you more data or a better price.

Should you go with Better Life?


  • Long expiry. The data lasts for 180 days, which could be useful if you don't use it much.


  • Poor value. 12GB is not a lot of data for a 180-day expiry period, and it comes at a high price of over $7 per 1GB.
  • No top-ups. You can't add small data packs to get you to the next recharge, you have to recharge the entire plan for more data.

Summary: Better Life's data-only plan isn't nearly as good a deal as their regular mobile plans, offering very little data for a high price.

Better Life Mobile FAQs
