On Demand Data Passes

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

     

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

     

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

     

     

    Find the pass that fits your needs

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

    Data passes are billed in the bill cycle in which they become effective. If a data pass starts in one bill cycle and ends in the next bill cycle, usage will appear on both bills. In this case, you may see usage for one data pass in two bill cycles. Once a data pass becomes effective, the full charge will remain on the bill.
