Low usage mobile plans

Information verified correct on December 5th, 2016

Whether you lean heavily on your home WiFi or just have no need for unlimited calls and 10GB of data, there are a range of low usage plans to suit your needs.

With the advent of Whatsapp, Facebook Messenger and Skype, call and text inclusions on plans are becoming less of a necessity, as people use apps to handle their day to day communication. Combined with the growing availability of Wi-Fi at home and work, it's becoming easier than ever to get by without large amounts of data. Others simply spend less time than others on their phones and have no need for such an excessive amount of data.

While many people using high inclusions as deciding factors for signing up to a mobile plan, there is a large number of mobile users who are paying much more each than they actually need. For those people, we've compiled a list of low-usage plans that will get you by without breaking the bank.

Not sure how much data you need?

Our guide to mobile data usage will help you work out exactly how much data is right for you each month. You may be surprised by just how little data you need every month compared to what you're actually paying for. Alternatively, you may discover that you need a lot more data each month, in which case it might be worth checking out our guide to mobile plans with more than 10GB of data included in the monthly cost.

The other alternative to low usage mobile plans is to switch to a prepaid service. By paying for your inclusions up front, you can rest easy that you'll never be charged more than you can afford each month. If you'd rather top up with prepaid credit, see our roundup of the best low-usage, long-expiry prepaid plans.
