After you purchase a TPG mobile plan, we will send you a SIM card containing a single SIM in all sizes: Standard, Micro and Nano.
Once you receive the SIM card, simply push out the SIM type you need.

5G Network Trial Terms & Conditions: We are extending our 5G access trial (‘the Trial’) on Eligible Plans to new and existing TPG mobile customers (‘Eligible Customers’) who sign up to, or are currently on the $40 60GB Plan (‘Eligible Plan’).

If you do not want to participate, or continue to participate in the Trial, please ensure you turn 5G off in your settings on your compatible device. If you are an Eligible Customer and would like to participate, or continue to participate in the Trial, you don’t need to do anything to access the trial, however, you must: (1) have an active mobile recharge on an Eligible Plan; (2) have a 5G compatible device; and (3) be in a 5G coverage area. Please use our coverage checker to find out more about our 5G coverage.

Important Things you need to know
About your Mobile Plan
General for all plans:
All TPG mobile plans are prepaid and auto-renew every month until you cancel. The recurring monthly plan fee is charged in advance, 7 days before the start of the next billing cycle.
All data for use in Australia within 4G coverage areas. When customers are not within a 4G coverage area, the mobile service will automatically switch over to 3G and speeds will be much less than that of 4G. Actual speeds and functionalities may vary due to things like device capability, location, and network congestion. TPG Mobile plans have a specific amount of included data each month. Data usage (including for social networking) is not unlimited and will be taken out of your included data. Once all included data has been used, data will not be available until your next monthly billing cycle, unless you pay for Excess Data. Tethering is permitted to personal devices only, but must not be used in a modem or as a substitute for a home internet service. TPG will endeavour to warn you via SMS when you are about to exceed and have exceeded your included plan value amount. TPG displays the information regarding usage to you via tpg.com.au/account.. Usage will generally appear in My Account within 48 hours. You are responsible for any usage irrespective of any warnings. If you have any questions, please call TPG Customer Support on 13 14 23.
These plans exclude excess data, calls to international numbers, SMS and MMS to international numbers, calls to satellite phones, third party content, video calls to standard Australian and international numbers, international roaming, directory assistance and other enhanced services. Calls and SMS to 19 numbers, diversion to international numbers, and premium SMS/MMS are not supported.
Unlimited National Calls, SMS & MMS to Standard AU Numbers (includes 13/1300). Excludes premium services and video calls. Personal use only. Acceptable use policy applies.
In addition to your recurring monthly plan charge, you have the option to make additional prepayments for usage that is not within the included value for your plan, by topping up your Prepaid Balance. Minimum $10 top-up to Prepaid Balance required. You may top-up your Prepaid Balance when you purchase your service or any time at tpg.com.au/account. If your service is cancelled, any unused balance of your Prepaid Balance will not be refunded.
TPG Mobile plans have a certain amount of included data each monthly billing cycle. If at any time in a billing cycle you use up the amount of included data, we will charge $10 out of your Prepaid Balance to increase the amount of included data available in that particular billing cycle by 2GB. If there are insufficient funds in your Prepaid Balance, your mobile data will become inactive until your Prepaid Balance is topped up.
Charges for Excess Data:
We will charge $10 out of your Prepaid Balance (if available) which will give you an extra 2GB to use for the remainder of the billing period . Over 2GB excess data: We will charge an additional $10 out of your Prepaid Balance (if available) which will give you an extra 2GB to use for the remainder of the billing period.
International Call Pack:
International Call Pack can be purchased for an additional $5 per month. You may purchase the $5 per month International Call pack when you purchase your service or any time at tpg.com.au/account. Once purchased, you will be charged $5 per month in addition to your monthly plan fees until you cancel.

TPG Mobile is Switching to the Vodafone Network
For more detailed information click here
Why is TPG mobile moving to the Vodafone network?
TPG has been involved in building fibre optic cables to Vodafone mobile base stations as part of their effort in transforming and improving their mobile network. As Vodafone's key construction partner, we are in a great position to understand the improved quality of the Vodafone mobile network.
We are so confident about our work with Vodafone that we have decided to move our mobile customer base from the Optus network to the Vodafone network.
Will TPG invite me to move to the Vodafone network?
Yes. We are inviting customers to move to the Vodafone network in batches as there are limitations on the number of customers that we and the industry can accommodate transferring daily. Eventually all TPG mobile customers in the Optus network will be invited to move. The entire migration process will take several months.
Will I need a new SIM card in the Vodafone network?
Yes. Once you are invited, we will send you a new SIM card which you need to activate in order to start your new plan on the Vodafone network. The SIM card we use is a multi-fit "Magic SIM card" which has all 3 SIM sizes (Standard, Micro and Nano) in one card so you will be covered no matter which SIM type you need. You can pop out the size SIM you need, and pop the pieces back together if you need a larger size.
If I accept the invitation, will my number get transferred across to the Vodafone network?
Yes, your mobile number will be transferred to the Vodafone network automatically after you activate your new TPG SIM card. You will remain a TPG customer.
Will there be any changes to my mobile plan?
There may be changes to your mobile plan in the Vodafone network. In general, the changes are beneficial for you but please go through the details of your new plan including the Critical Information Summary to assess whether it is suitable for you.
What happens if I don't want to move to the Vodafone network?
We do expect to eventually discontinue our mobile plans in the Optus network. We are confident in the service and plans we offer on the Vodafone network and we recommend you accept the invitation to move to the Vodafone network as early as possible. If you do not accept the invitation and your existing plan is discontinued in the future, we will of course provide you with the appropriate notice.
How can I check the mobile coverage in my area and if my device is compatible with the Vodafone network?
Please check our mobile coverage page.
Will I have access to the Vodafone 4G network?
Yes, all TPG mobile plans in the Vodafone network have access to the Vodafone 4G network. However, you can only obtain 4G speeds when you use a 4G-ready phone (LTE 1800/850 MHz) in 4G coverage areas as per our mobile coverage map. If you are not within a 4G coverage area or your mobile handset is not 4G compatible, the mobile service will automatically switch over to 3G or 2G and speeds will be much less than that of 4G.
Is there any fee I have to pay to move to the Vodafone network?
No. Once you are invited to move to the Vodafone network, we will send a new SIM card to you free of charge.
Can I get a current plan TPG sells rather than the one being offered to me in the invitation?
Yes. When you activate your new TPG SIM card online, you will be given the option to choose from the plan specified in the invitation we sent to you and the plans TPG currently sells.
Someone I know received an invitation from TPG with a different offer from the invitation I received. Can I get that offer?
No, the offer is available only for the TPG mobile service number addressed in the invitation. The offer made to you is based on your existing mobile plan.
