Managing your Spend

Usage notifications:

If you are a residential customer, we will help you control your spend by providing you with notifications via email or SMS when you reach 50%, 85% and 100% of your call/SMS value and/or data allowance that is included in your mobile plan or in your broadband plan.

Usage notifications do not occur in real time but with a delay of 48 hours after you actually reached the respective thresholds.

Usage notifications also do not include any usage that you may have consumed overseas (mobile roaming), calls and SMS to overseas destinations and calls to premium services

Other ways of managing your spend:

There may be other ways of keeping your spend on track, such as barring more expensive numbers, choosing an internet plan without excess charges (which means that your speed is shaped/slowed down once you used up your included data allowance) or monitoring your spend. Please contact us for more information

Mobile roaming

VeeTel does not recommend to activate your roaming service when travelling overseas.

Your mobile service does not allow you to roam (i.e. use it) overseas and you must contact us to activate mobile roaming prior to travelling outside Australia should you wish to enable this function.

A bond of $250.00 may be required to activate International IDD or roaming. This bond may be held by VeeTel for a minimum of 3 months.

Charges for mobile roaming (i.e. for calls, SMS and data) are usually significantly higher than within Australia and also higher than charges for making international calls from Australia. Importantly, you may also be charged for receiving calls and SMS when using your service overseas.

Making and receiving calls/SMS overseas is not included in your monthly allowance and you will be required to pay these charges in addition to your monthly charge. Therefore, even short periods of international mobile roaming can generate a very high bill.

Please contact us if you wish to receive more information on international mobile roaming and charges associated with activating this function.
