Lycamobile mobile broadband plans compared

If you're looking for a basic mobile broadband service powered by Telstra's 4G network, Lycamobile is worth checking out.

Is Lycamobile right for me?

  • What does Lycamobile offer? Lycamobile offers a handful of mobile broadband plans delivered over parts of the Telstra 3G and 4G networks. The same network powers Lycamobile's regular mobile plans, too.
  • Product highlights: Lycamobile offers Telstra network coverage and affordable pricing.
  • Watch out for: Lycamobile's mobile broadband plans run on 28-day recharge cycles rather than 30-day or monthly cycles, so you end up paying almost a full recharge more every 12 months.

Lycamobile's mobile broadband plans explained

Lycamobile takes a basic approach to its mobile broadband plans, offering just three that, like its regular mobile plans, operate on parts of the Telstra 3G and 4G mobile networks. All three plans are prepaid affairs with 28-day expiry periods, and pricing is as follows:

  • Data S plan: 1GB of data for
  • Data M plan: 3GB of data for
  • Data L plan: 10GB of data for

All Lycamobile's mobile broadband plans also include free delivery of a Lycamobile SIM card, should you need one.

How does Lycamobile compare?

  • Telstra network coverage is rare in the mobile broadband space
  • Very limited range of data caps
  • Pricier than much of the competition

As one of only a few mobile broadband providers operating on Telstra's 3G and 4G network, Lycamobile is well-suited to Australians living in areas of the country where the Optus and Vodafone networks are weak or non-existent. Greater coverage doesn't come free, though, and Lycamobile's plans tend to cost more than competing options from other providers on the Optus or Vodafone networks.

Why should you consider Lycamobile?

Where Lycamobile's regular mobile plans distinguish themselves on their international inclusions, its mobile broadband plans rely on the strength of Telstra's 3G and 4G networks to stand out from the crowd. Should you spend a lot of time in areas of the country where Vodafone and Optus coverage is poor, the premium Lycamobile charges for its data plans might be worth it. Otherwise, you'll probably be better off with a cheaper and more data-packed alternative from a competing provider on the Optus or Vodafone networks.
