While Vodafone offers a wide selection of popular mobile plans, it also offers a variety of data-only mobile broadband plans for connecting tablets, laptops and Wi-Fi hotspots to the network.

To solidify its position as one of the country's leading telco, the company has also launched NBN plans, all with unlimited monthly data on either month-to-month or 24 month contract.

      Hi Pam,

      Depending on what device you’re using and whether you’re making calls and text or are after data, generally your address has good coverage and supports 3G and 3G+.

      To test your device and its reception, you can check your Vodafone coverage here: http://www.vodafone.com.au/aboutvodafone/network/checker

      Hope that helps,
