scottjpalmer: Can the mobile broadband packs be loaded on a handset connection?

Or only on a data-only SIM for USB modems?


Any 2degrees connection can buy any add-on.




iPad Pro 11" + iPhone XS + 2degrees 4tw!

 

These comments are my own and do not represent the opinions of 2degrees.

Just text "Buy 512MB", "Buy 2GB" or "Buy 10GB" to 233

Great!

Through the website - "Your 2 degrees" or by texting "buyxxx to 233"?

<EDIT> question answered.

Do these data packs have the same renewal rules as the 50MB one?  ie no auto-renewal

It will work just fine on a handset. You can buy both Mobile Internet AND Mobile Broadband on the same SIM. Your handset will use the Mobile Broadband while inside the zone, and the Mobile Internet while outside.

If you don't have the Mobile Internet while outside the zone then you will pay casual data.

So that that mean, for example, I could use the 2Gb plan on my iPad while I'm within 2 Degrees network coverage and then purchase a 50Mb for $6 pack on the odd occassions when I'm in an area where I have to roam on Vodafone?

No they are not, at least with Voda, I use my Vodem Pro with a 2D sim. Last week was 5Mb downloads.

Yes!


But those data packs expire in 30 days so be careful...

I'm just glad their web developers are NOT the same people as their network engineers.

Shall we have a competition to see who can find the most broken links?

I found two on just the one page!

Next question: Is there any indication on the handset/USB modem console that you are in or out of the 2Degrees zone?

This is pretty essential IMHO
