Belong launches budget-friendly mobile broadband plans

It's Belong time coming.

Telstra-owned MVNO Belong has launched into the new mobile broadband space with three new month-to-month plans.

The cheapest of these includes 20GB of data and is priced at $15 per month. Belong are pitching it as the obvious choice for those want to add a bit of on-the-go connectivity to their tablet.

Then there's the middle-of-the-range option, which bumps things up to 80GB. This plan costs $35 per month, but may be exactly what you need if you need portable internet for something like a laptop.

Finally, there's the top-end option for heavy data users. This one is priced at $70 per month and includes 500GB of monthly data.

All three plans require you to bring-your-own-device but they're also no-contract, so you can try things out for a month and then leave Belong behind if it doesn't work out.

Should you go over your data cap, Belong won't cut you off or charge you extra. However, they will slow down you connection speed to 64kbps.

Then, if that's not enough to get by until the end of the billing month, you can always top up your monthly data allowance by an extra 5GB for $10.

The move rounds out the budget-friendly brand's existing roster of mobile and NBN plans. As with the former, Belong's new mobile broadband plans rely on Telstra's wholesale network.

With the exception of Boost, all Telstra MVNOs have access to this rather than the entire Telstra network. Where the full Telstra network accounts for 99.4% of the Australian population, their wholesale network accounts for 97.9% of Aussies. That might not sound like a big difference, but if you're considering signing on for one of Belong's new mobile broadband plans it might be worth making sure you don't fall into that unlucky point-and-a-half.

You can check out the widget below for an overview of how Belong's new plans compare to some of the other mobile broadband options out there with at least 10GB of monthly data.
