How can we help?

Know your data

Move the sliders to tell us your average daily data use when you're not on Wi-Fi. We'll then estimate how much data you use a month to help you pick a bundle with the right data allowance.

This calculator should be used as a guide only and isn't a guarantee of actual usage.


Number of emails you read or send each day:

How many emails do you read or send on your phone including those with documents attached? We estimate that about a quarter of emails are sent with attachments.

Number of posts made on social media each day:

How many times do you update or upload photos or videos to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or other social media sites each day?

Number of times you view an app or browse a web page each day:

How many times do you browse web pages or check apps each day? This could be checking the news, shopping, using search engines, using apps or just checking Facebook (not posting). Only include apps that need an internet connection.

Which plan suits you best?

Fast is now even faster

Gibtelecom operates a 4G+ network, with full coverage of the Rock. 4G+ is another name for LTE-A, LTE-Advanced or 4.5G and it's basically a faster version of 4G.

While standard 4G only uses one band at a time,  4G+ can combine two bands to maximise speeds. In Gibtelecom's case it's the 800MHz and 2.6GHz bands which are being combined.

 4G+ offers maximum download speeds of up to 225Mbps (depending on network conditions and handset models), with typical speeds being between 20 and 30 times faster than 3G.

Speed up with 4G+

How do I access Mobile Internet?

You need a 2G, 3G or 4G enabled phone or mobile device to access the internet. You can also access it on your laptop using a 3G/4G dongle or insert your SIM card into a Mi-Fi router which uses 3G/4G to provide data access via Wi-Fi.

We recommend that you subscribe to a data plan or bundle before going online on your phone in order to get the best value. You will also need to set up the correct data settings on your phone - find out how here.

Mobile broadband is not intended to be used for connection to devices such as modems, for the continuous streaming of multimedia content or for P2P or file sharing in such a way that adversely impacts the service to other Gibtel customers.
