What you need to know about Southern Phone mobile broadband plans

Regional Aussies don't have it easy when it comes to getting online. Network coverage outside the five capital cities is limited, thanks largely due to the harshness of the Australian landscape. Laying down the cabling for fixed broadband is a slow, expensive process, and this is reflected in the high costs of many regional broadband plans.

This is where Southern Phone comes in. Leveraging the extensive coverage of the Optus 3G and 4G networks, the community-focused telco offers a range of mobile broadband plans aimed squarely at Aussies dissatisfied with the fixed-line services available to them. Whether you live on the shores of Broome or in the bush around Woomera, Southern Phone has a plan to get you online.

What are the different Southern Phone mobile broadband plans?

Along with mobile voice services, Southern Phone also offers data-only mobile broadband services that use Optus's 3G/4G mobile network. These plans are labelled "Green" plans and all operate on 12-month contracts.

Pricing and inclusions for Southern Phone's mobile broadband plans are as follows:

  • Extra Small: 7GB of data for $15 a month
  • Small: 15GB of data for $25 a month
  • Medium: 50GB of data for $40 a month
  • Large: 100GB of data for $65 a month
  • Extra Large: 250GB of data for $110 a month

If you exceed your monthly data allowance, you'll be automatically charged 1.1c for each additional 1MB you use. There is also an early termination fee that varies depending on both which plan you sign up to and how early you cancel your contract. In some cases, this fee can be as much as $460.

It's worth noting that data-only mobile broadband services aren't included in Southern Phone's "triple bundle" service, only mobile voice/data services.
