How do Hello Mobile's data plans work?

Hello Mobile's data plans don't function the same as a normal mobile deal. Rather than purchasing a plan and getting a wireless modem to plug into your house, you purchase a Hello Mobile SIM for your SIM-capable device and activate it.

Once the data plan is active, your device will have access to Vodafone's 3G mobile network. You will not be able to use it to make calls or send texts unless you've purchased a regular mobile plan, too. If your device with the SIM can act as a hotspot, you'll be able to access this data from other devices.

Hello Mobile review: What we think

Hello Mobile primarily sells mobile phone plans, but has a handful of mobile broadband plans for customers who are looking for a little data on the go. You can add on data packs up to 2GB that will last for a full 30-day cycle.

As with its mobile plans, Hello Mobile offers precious little value for money, starting at only 500MB for $10 and only going up to 2GB maximum on a single data pack at a ruinous rate of $20 per 1GB. To get any significant amount of data, you'll likely have to spend nearly a hundred dollars, when you can get way more data from most other mobile data providers.

To compound the problem, you won't even get 4G speeds, since you're limited to the Vodafone 3G network, which is around 10 times slower on average. Compare plans to make sure you get a good deal, and think twice before purchasing a data plan from Hello Mobile.

Should you go with Hello Mobile?


  • Full month expiry. The data packs last a full 30 days, meaning you won't have to do extra recharges through the year.


  • No 4G speeds. These plans run on the Vodafone 3G network only, meaning you won't be able to access higher 4G speeds.
  • Poor value. These data packs at best offer an extra 1GB for $20, which is low compared to other providers.

Summary: Hello Mobile's data plans offer very little data for how much you pay, and only give 3G speeds to boot.

Hello Mobile frequently asked questions

Do I need a new modem to sign up to Hello Mobile?

You won't need a specific modem so long as you have access to a device which can accept a SIM. Simply insert the SIM into your device and you'll be able to use your data plan.

Can I get calls with Hello Mobile data plans?

No, Hello Mobile's data plans do not give you the ability to make calls or send texts. However, if you want to get a mobile plan you can buy one from its website.
