Compare Exetel mobile broadband plans

High-capacity 4G broadband is Exetel's bread and butter.


What you need to know about Exetel's mobile broadband plans

Exetel offers a wide range of mobile broadband plans delivered via the Optus 4G network. These plans are SIM-only, so you'll need to own a SIM-compatible phone, tablet, laptop or another 4G-supported device to make use of them. Alternatively, Exetel will sell you a Wi-Fi-enabled 4G dongle for use with any Wi-Fi-supported device.

All Exetel's mobile broadband plans are available on month-to-month contracts charged on a post-paid basis.

What are the different Exetel mobile broadband plans?

Exetel's SIM-only mobile broadband plans operate over the Optus 3G and 4G network and are available on both month-to-month and 12-month contracts. Pricing and data caps vary depending on which contract term you sign up for, resulting in the following options:

Month-to-month plans

  • 1.5GB plan for $9.99 a month
  • 5GB plan for $19.99 a month
  • 8GB plan for $29.99 a month
  • 15GB plan for $44.99 a month
  • 50GB plan for $59.99 a month
  • 70GB plan for $79.99 a month

12-month plans

  • 8GB plan for $19.99 a month
  • 15GB plan for $29.99 a month
  • 25GB plan for $44.99 a month
  • 60GB plan for $59.99 a month
  • 90GB plan for $79.99 a month

Both the month-to-month plans and the 12-month plans come with no setup fees, though you will have to pay an early termination fee if you sign up for a 12-month plan and cancel before the full year has passed. This fee is calculated based on both the time remaining on your contract and your chosen plan, and can range anywhere from $25 up to $300.

On 12-month plans, Exetel also provides an option for purchasing a 4G USB modem at $9 a month extra. If you cancel your plan before the year is up, you'll need to pay out the full $110 cost of the modem less the monthly repayments you've already made.

If you chew through all your monthly data on one of Exetel's mobile broadband plans, any excess data you use will be charged in 1GB blocks at a price of $10 per block.
