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?

There are six different Exetel mobile broadband plans, each with their own monthly data cap. These start at 1.5GB of data a month and increase to 5GB, 8GB, 15GB, 50GB and 70GB of data a month.

All Exetel's plans offer the same 4G speeds which will vary depending on factors like your distance from the nearest 4G antenna, network congestion and the density of the walls and other objects between you and your nearest 4G antenna.

How much do Exetel's mobile broadband plans cost?

Exetel's mobile broadband plans start at $9.99 a month for 1.5GB of data and increase to $19.99 a month for 5GB, $29.99 a month for 8GB, $44.99 a month for 15GB, $59.99 a month for 50GB and $79.99 a month for 70GB. If you sign up with Exetel, you'll be charged for your first month in advance, with subsequent payments charged at the end of every month.

While Exetel doesn't charge any activation or cancellation fees for its mobile broadband plans, you will face excess data charges if you go over your monthly download limit. Excess usage is automatically charged at $10/GB over your monthly limit.

It's worth noting that Exetel's mobile broadband plans are only available within Australia. To access the service overseas, you'll need to activate roaming in your Exetel account settings, but be aware that roaming data costs are far higher than data costs within Australia.
