- Network Information
This specific Southern phone plan uses part of the Telstra 4G and 3G network. Mobile broadband services are affected by network utilisation, weather conditions, the distance from the tower and hills as well as building types and other obstructions that can impede the signal. Also, where the network is under heavy load, a voice call will take precedence over a mobile data connection. This congestion can be worse in high use periods like school holidays.

The renewal day for your monthly data download quota is the first day of your billing period.
