Explaining Anytime and AM Data
What are AM & Anytime hours?
AM hours are midnight to midday (all 'AM' hours i.e 12am, 1am...10am, 11.59am). Anytime hours are midday to midnight, or if you run out of AM data.
What happens if I run out of Anytime or AM Data?
If you run out of AM data, you can continue using your Anytime data during AM hours. If you run out of Anytime data, you will need to top up to continue using your connection.
Why can't I have unlimited at all times?
We want to provide a reliable service that’s fast for everyone. Each rural cell tower is shared between users in your specific area, and if everyone was to use large amounts of data during 'peak' hours e.g. 7pm, you could experience slower speeds.
We can offer more data during AM hours as not everyone is online all at once.

RBI Wireless Facts
RBI (Rural Broadband Initiative) is the government’s initiative to provide fast broadband to areas outside the urban copper and fibre networks. It uses long range fixed wireless towers to provide broadband coverage to homes and businesses within range.
If you are in plug and play coverage, the wireless signal is received straight from the modem, meaning there’s no need for an antenna to be installed on your roof. We make it simple by avoiding the need for an installer saving you valuable time and money. If you find yourself out of ‘PnP’ (Plug and Play) coverage then you will need to have an aerial installed on the roof of your home or business.
4G RBI speeds are usually fast enough to stream Netflix smoothly and use multiple devices connected to the internet at once.

It’s easy to change the number of auto top ups within your MyHub account. Here’s a couple scenarios on how you can control your auto top ups:
- You can set your connection to stop as soon as you have run out of Anytime data, and manually add a top up from within your MyHub account.
- You can set various data pack sizes to auto top up e.g. 5GB data pack to auto top up to 5 times, or 1GB up to 2 times.
You’ve got the control. Find out how to purchase top ups here.
Can I upgrade or downgrade my plan?
Yes, you can. Please note, your plan change will only take effect in the following calendar month.
