raftcomm: Dont forget you can keep buying top up bundles once you have exhausted your main data bundle.


... Only when on prepay (If I remember correctly)

Yup thats correct. Its only on Prepay. On Account has bundle insurance but once you exhaust that, you will have to pay out of bundle rates until your next bill cycle.

According to the VF website, no bundle insurance on broadband lite 100MB or iPhone On Account plans. (There's an * after 'all plans' here)

and as for going over on account;

"On Account: This gives you 100MB per month which is billed to your mobile account. Extra data is charged at 10c per MB."

So in essence the 'excess' is at the same rate as 100MB for $10 . Already been mentioned in previous posts from memory.

Actually that's night quite true.

For this $10 data pack, you are correct that all prepay users can add an additional 100mb for $10.

For on account users, after they use their first 100mb, they just pay 10c per additional MB which is the same as paying $10 for 100mb but you arn't buying it as a pack which is actually better value because you don't have to use the entire pack up to get your dollars worth.
