Telstra Mobile Data Plans

Telstra Mobile Broadband - Share Plans

New Telstra Mobile Broadband® Shared Plans allow business mobile broadband users on the same account to share their unused included data allowances while in Australia, providing greater flexibility, cost certainty and reduced administration costs.

All shared data allowances will be combined into a ‘pool’ of data which can be shared across all eligible users on the account each month. If customers also have mobiles connected to Business Mobile Advantage plans on the same account then the included data allowance from these plans can also contribute to the shared ‘pool’ of data. This will help minimise excess usage charges as those users who have a high usage each month will balance against those who use only a little.

For example, if you connect five team members to a 4GB Share Plan each on the same account, you would have 20GB of data to share between those five users each month in Australia.

TMB Shared Plans are available on Casual (month by month) or a 12 or 24 month contract -  Member.

Plan Types

There are two types of Share Plans available:

  • TMB Share Member Plan on a 12 or 24 month term (you can purchase a device outright or on a monthly plan or use an existing device you already own).  If you buy a new Telstra USB 4G, Telstra Mobile Wi-Fi 4G, Telstra Ultimate Gateway or eligible Tablet on monthly Telstra plan with their Member Plan you will be eligible to receive a TMB Business MRO bonus for the duration of their contract period.

  • TMB Share Casual Plan - you have no fixed term commitment and can either purchase a device outright or bring an existing device they already own).
