Frequently asked questions

Why should I get mobile broadband?

With mobile broadband, you’ll be able to connect your devices to the internet, when you’re out and about. To see where Vodafone has mobile coverage, check out our coverage checker.

What devices can be used with Mobile Broadband?

With a mobile broadband plan, you’ll be issued with a multi-fit SIM card.

You could insert the SIM into a modem to connect Wi-Fi only devices, including Wi-Fi tablets, video game consoles, and portable music players. Connect to your modem from your device using Wi-Fi and you’ll be able to use the data from your mobile broadband plan. Modems can either be portable with a rechargeable battery or need to be plugged into a power socket.

Alternatively, your device may accept a SIM card so you can insert the SIM and use the data from your mobile broadband plan directly.

What’s the difference between postpaid and prepaid mobile broadband?

Using a modem or tablet, mobile broadband is a wireless connection to the internet via our mobile network. If you sign up to a postpaid plan, we’ll issue you a bill each month. With prepaid, you need to recharge when either you’ve used your included data for that recharge or at the end of the expiry period.

Certain features, like data sharing and using your plan overseas, are only available on eligible postpaid plans. Check your individual plan details for more info.

What’s the difference between mobile broadband and nbn™?

You can connect your devices to the internet using both mobile broadband and nbn™. Using a mobile broadband modem, you’ll connect to the Vodafone mobile network. Mobile broadband can be used at home, or on the go where Vodafone’s mobile network is available.

On the other hand, using the Vodafone Wi-Fi Hub™, you can connect your home or office to the nbn™ broadband network.

Specific plan features may also differ so check your individual plan details for more info.
