TPG mobile plans

Information verified correct on October 27th, 2016

One of the country's largest broadband providers has expanded into the mobile space. Here's everything you need to know.


What services does TPG Mobile offer?

TPG may be best known for its home broadband plan offerings, but the company has long been dabbling in the mobile space, offering a selection of prepaid plans to Australian customers. Initially running on the back of the Optus mobile network, in 2015 the MVNO switched providers, and now uses the Vodafone 4G network to provide its mobile services.

All of TPG's offerings are prepaid SIM-only plans, with no lock in contracts and varying levels of call, text and data inclusions. Unlike many other providers, TPG's prepaid plans have a full month recharge, rather than 28 days.

How much does TPG Mobile cost?

TPG's range of mobile SIM plans are thankfully simple, with only three variations to choose from. The entry level T4G A plan costs $19.99 a month, and includes 1.5GB of data, alongside talk and text value of $550 each month. That talk and text can be used for both Australian and international numbers, though you'll obviously burn through credit faster calling overseas. It's worth noting that this plan charges excess data at a rate of 10c/MB, eating at any prepaid credit you have until your next recharge.

The mid-tier plan, T4G II, increases the monthly allowances across the board. For $29.99 a month, you get 2GB of data, plus unlimited talk and text to Australian numbers, although that excludes MMS messages.

For those looking at the top tier, the T4G III plan costs $39.99 a month, and offers the same talk and text inclusions as the T4G II plan, with data increased to 5GB a month.

What extras does TPG Mobile offer?

For a limited time, TPG is offering the first month free on its T4G A plan for new customers, which works out as a $19.99 saving. Otherwise, TPG's plans are straightforward prepaid options that don't delve too much into the bonus features category.



  • Proper monthly recharges. So far, TPG has resisted the urge to reduce the expiry period for its plans to 28 days, meaning more bang for your buck.
  • Vodafone 4G coverage. TPG was the first Vodafone MVNO to offer access to Voda's 4G network.


  • MMS not included. Unlimited talk and text plans don't include MMS messages, which makes them additional charges on your bill.
  • Excess data charges. The entry T4G A plan charges data at a 10c/MB rate, rather than a flat fee per GB, which could mean faster consumption of your prepaid allowance.

      Hi Aily,

      Thanks for your inquiry. Please note that you’ve come through to – we are a comparison website and does not represent TPG.

      Yes, you can use and keep your own number so long that you unlock it from your previous mobile phone provider.
