Belong was the winner of Finder's 2021 Green Awards for Mobile Plan Provider of the Year, taking top place with its certified carbon-neutral plans. This applies to its NBN plans as well as mobile.
The mobile plans represent solid value, offering big data at affordable prices. The $45 for 80GB option is sure to please those with high data needs.
Belong also has some other features you might enjoy:
While Belong has several perks, it suffers when it comes to:
Every plan is carbon-neutral at no additional cost.
Belong uses parts of the Telstra 3G and 4G mobile network.
There are a couple of options if you need to get something sorted with Belong. But, it's not clear when you might expect a response since there are no published support hours.
Although Belong is relatively straightforward with its plans, there are a few enticing bonus features.
For $5 per month, you can add on unlimited calls and texts to 30 countries with any plan.
All the data you have left over each month will be put into a data bank with unlimited capacity.
This can be handy for flexible data use, and you can even gift your banked data to other Belong users in 1GB chunks.
If you need an extra boost of data, you can buy them in 5GB lots for $10 each.
If you do run out of your monthly data, Belong won't charge you for going over your limit. Though don't expect to do much with its slowed down Internet speed of 64kbps.
While Coles Mobile offers some decent deals, if you're looking for more variety, consider the following providers:
felix is another carbon-neutral mobile provider in Australia. It also plants a tree each month for every active subscription.
Boost Mobile is the only small provider that uses the full Telstra 4G mobile network with 99.5% coverage. It has a range of affordable prepaid plans too.
If Belong's 80GB plan isn't quite large enough for you, you can pick up 100GB from Circles.Life for around the same price every month.
Unfortunately, Belong isn't currently available via Finder. You'll have to head to belong.com.au where you can sign up to the plan you want.

What if I want to keep my current phone number?
You can opt to transfer your existing mobile number to Belong during the activation process. Belong advises that transfers normally take 4 hours or less but could take up to a couple of days to complete.
If your current number is under someone else's name (a parent or a partner), it might involve a few more steps. Check our guide on how to transfer ownership of your mobile number.

When products are grouped in a table or list, the order in which they are initially sorted may be influenced by a range of factors including price, fees and discounts; commercial partnerships; product features; and brand popularity.

We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad-based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
