What's considered a high-data mobile plan?

While there's no concrete number that defines something as a high-data mobile plan, we consider anything that's over 40GB a month to be a decent amount of data.

While gaming, video chats and YouTube can chew through your data given time, it's really high-quality video streaming services like Netflix and Stan that can devour up to 3GB an hour if you let them.

So if you're guilty of streaming content on your phone while you're out of the house, a high-data mobile plan might be right for you.

Is a high-data mobile plan right for me?

A high-data mobile plan is good for anyone who's doing data-heavy things like video streaming when off Wi-Fi or people who access the Internet primarily through their mobile.

Pros

  • Often come with no lock-in contracts so you can always switch to a lower or even higher plan if necessary
  • Frequent bonus data promotions available on plans
  • Choose between prepaid or postpaid plans as desired

Cons

  • Can get expensive if you're paying for data you're not actually using

How do I compare high-data mobile plans?

When deciding on a plan, here are a few things to consider to make sure you're getting the most out of your plan:

  • Cost. Many high-data plans offer bonus data for the first few months or recharges and then drop to a lower data cap for the same price afterwards. You can switch providers to keep taking advantage of these deals or find a data-to-dollar ratio you can stomach.
  • Plan inclusions. Besides data, there are other plan features you can look out for to get even more value for your money. Some providers offer features like data rollover, which let you save up any ununsed data for the following period.
  • Excess data fees. Even a huge data cap can be broken. Some providers will slug you with a steep fee for extra GB blocks, while others like Telstra or Vodafone may slow your connection down to a mere 1.5Mbps.

What's actually guzzling up all my mobile data?

The biggest culprit for your need for a high-data mobile plan is video streaming. Streaming services like Netflix can eat up to 3GB an hour if you're streaming HD video. Other activities like taking video calls and social media can also dig into your monthly data allowance.

ActivityData used
NetflixUp to 3GB/hour with HD streaming
FacebookUp to 500MB/hour (depending on how much video content is on your feed)
SpotifyUp to 75MB/hour with high quality playback
YoutubeUp to 2GB/hour with HD streaming
TikTokUp to 1GB/hour

If you're not keen to pay for a higher data mobile plan, you could also take a look at data-saving measures like downloading movies and shows on Netflix, or downloading playlists on Spotify at home while you're connected to the internet so it doesn't affect your mobile data.
