Although our plans already pack a punch with their included data, sometimes it's nice to have a little extra to play with each month. Add a Data Value-Add and give your mobile a monthly data boost. It's the commitment-free, no strings attached way to upsize your data. Plus with Data Rollover, any unused data will rollover to the next month, so you don't lose what you don't use

Which Data Value-Add is right for me?
Take a look at the descriptions below. Think about how often you'll be online, checking Facebook, emails, news etc. Remember that apps, videos, Google™ Maps and features like Siri can use a lot of data as they often keep running in the background, even if you're not using your phone.
