On Demand Data Passes

On Demand Data Passes let you temporarily add high-speed data by the day or week, whenever you need it to supplement your free data or to top-up a recurring data plan.



Why you might add a data pass

You can add a data pass for a number of reasons, including:


  • You're experiencing reduced data speeds after reaching your data allotment.
  • You're roaming domestically and want additional domestic roaming data.
  • You're roaming internationally and you want a higher data speed.


Additional passes can be purchased as needed once a purchased pass expires.
