How much data do I need?

Before you get started with amaysim, it’s good to know your usage habits.

That’s why we built our handy Data Calculator so you can get a solid estimate of your data needs and work out what amaysim mobile or data-only plan will best suit your browsing habits.

While our Data Calculator is great for understanding your data usage, it provides an estimate of your monthly data usage and so should be used a guide only.

Need more data?

It's clear that Aussies are using more data than even before and if you're looking for a plan that includes a bit more data, our data-only plans include options for 50GB and 100GB.

These plans are great for data lovers and provide a solid alternative for those in areas where the nbn has not become available.
