Mobile Broadband Usage Calculator
Optus has a number of mobile broadband plans designed for different budgets and data usages. What are all these plans? How much mobile broadband data do you need every month?
You should understand how much bandwidth you will need every month before you sign up for a mobile broadband contract. If you don't know, you could be spending too much on a broadband contract with a monthly data allowance that you'll never reach.
You can work out how much data usage you need each month based on:
- How many emails you receive
- How many hours you spend visiting websites
- How many music files you download
- How many hours you spend playing games online
- How many hours of video clips you download and stream
Please use the calculator below to find out which broadband plan best suits your needs.
