With the increasing amount of data that our customers have been using when overseas, we offer cost efficient data packs that make using data overseas easier than ever before.

You are able to select the pack size and the zone you will be travelling in, so that you can purchase a data pack that best suits your needs.

A data pack will give you a set amount of data for a set price. This means that there is a fixed cost for a certain quantity of data - for example 100MB, 150MB, 250MB or more.

The data pack will be valid for you to use for 90 days after you have purchased it.

You can login to your account online and purchase a data pack in the zone(s) that you are travelling to.

Note: If you travel outside the zone you have selected you will be charged a normal pay as you go data rate.
