Data Add-ons Plan

Here’s a quick summary of the important bits about your data Bolt-ons. It covers details of the options you have, how it works, and how much you need to pay.

There are basically two types of data bolt-ons: One-off and Recurring.

One-off

The one off bolt ons can be used both domestically and internationally.

Domestic

One-off bolt-ons are perfect to cover that extra data you were not expecting to use. It is charged at the moment of addition and gives you 1GB of data to use in Australia.

  • 1GB One-off bolt-on including 1GB for $10

The 1GB One-off bolt-on will start to be consumed once your plan’s data allowance is exhausted, and it can help you avoiding the costlier excess usage charges. Once the bolt-on is exhausted, excess usage charges may apply.

It is valid until the end of your monthly bill (27th of every month) and will not be renewed or recharged automatically once exhausted or in the following month. You can add this bolt-on as many times as you like.

1GB One-off bolt-on is available on all Prima Mobile plans.

International Roaming

International Roaming One-off bolt-ons available on Prima Mobile are perfect to get you more affordable data when you are roaming internationally, once 1MB of a Roaming bolt-on is around 10 times cheaper than the standard international data rates. It is charged at the moment of addition and immediately gives you data to be used in other countries.

Below are the three International Roaming bolt-ons to choose from:

Bolt-on Amount of data Cost
