Extra data to get you through the month

Adding a one-off Data Booster to your monthly billed plan gives you an extra 1GB of data to see you through til your next bill cycle. They’re a one-off purchase and any unused data expires at the end of the billing cycle in which you add it.

They're great if you just need a temporary boost for the current month but if you're having trouble keeping within the limits of your plan, check out our recurring Data Add-ons or consider changing plans.

On one of our latest phone plans?

Data Boosters aren’t available on our latest plans – instead we’ll automatically bolt-on additional data when you use more than your plan. If you’re interested in switching to one of these plans, check out our support page.

What it costs

  • They’re $10 for 1GB. Detailed info and pricing is available when adding them through My Vodafone
  • You can buy as many boosters as needed and can have more than one active at any one time
  • If you use up your booster (and any other data inclusions) and don't add another, the additional data rate of your plan applies

How to do it

Step 1

Go to and log in with your mobile number and password.

Step 2

Select ‘View and buy add-ons’ from the Quick Links section. If you’re logged in using a computer or tablet, you’ll see this on the right of the screen. If you’re using your phone, you’ll need to scroll down the page.

Note: You can also get to your add-ons by going to 'Account Settings' and then selecting 'Manage Add-ons'.

Step 3

If requested, enter your 4 digit account enquiry PIN.

Step 4

Select ‘Add Data'.

Note: If you’ve previously added extra data to your plan either with a Data Add-on or Data Booster, you’ll need to select the ‘Change or remove add-on’ button in the data section.

Step 5

Select 'I just need extra data now' and then select 'Continue'.

Step 6

Read through the info for the booster. If you agree to the terms and conditions, tick the box and then select ‘Buy now’.

You’ll receive a message when you’re right to start using your booster.

Important info

  • If you've already used up all of your included data and have begun to incur excess usage charges, these will still apply once a booster is added. Boosters only apply to data used after they’ve been added
  • You can check your remaining booster balance online through My Vodafone or by calling 1512. If Vodafone Alerts are enabled for your plan, we'll also send you a TXT if you use up all your booster
  • Data Boosters are used first before any other data inclusions in your plan. Once it’s used up, data will come out of your Data Add-on (if you’ve added one) and then your plan
  • Data Boosters are for use within Australia (or while roaming, with $5 Roaming)
  • If you’re on prepaid, Data Boosters aren’t available but you can buy Prepaid Mobile Internet Add-ons
