Data Blocks are billed monthly (in arrears) on your broadband account. You must use your data block within the current month - they do not roll over to the following month.
The following Data Block pricing applies for ADSL2+, NBN, Fibre to the Home, and Wireless DSL services. For NodeMobile Data services, see NodeMobile Data Blocks.
(Data Block Size)
Price 2 Gigabytes $5 10 Gigabytes $10 20 Gigabytes $15 50 Gigabytes $30 100 Gigabytes $50 200 Gigabytes $80
This pricing includes GST.
If you find yourself close to using all your monthly quota, simply buy a 'block' of data online - and keep surfing at full speed. Or, if you are already over quota, you can buy a data block to have shaping removed and return to normal speed.
Data Blocks allow you to add some extra allowance - just once - to your monthly base quota. If you find you do this often, it may be more cost-effective to switch to a higher quota plan. Your new plan will roll over on your next billing date.
Note: Data Blocks are not available on 'Business ADSL' services,
nor are they available on ADSL / Wireless DSL services with a 'Business Pack' option.
