We keep you on the right plan

Many people pay for more data than they need, because of the fear of a big bill if they go over their allowance.

We’ve won Finder’s Best Telco Innovation award for the last two years, because we proactively move our customers to the best deal available for them.

Bank your unused data

If you haven’t used all your data allowance, you don’t lose it, it is added to the new month’s allowance. You can ‘bank’ up to 500GB.

Share your data

You can ‘gift’ data to another Better Life Mobile customer if you are on our $32, $37 or $42 plans.

This is a great way to manage the way you share data, and it allows you to make sure you have control over who gets data, how often, and how much.

We’re making a difference

We never planned on starting a mobile phone company, we just wanted to help a few people experiencing homelessness get connected to an affordable mobile plan.

When we couldn’t get any of the existing mobile phone companies to help, we set up Better Life Mobile.

10 years later, our goal hasn’t changed. To make using a mobile phone fairer and more affordable for all members of society.
