Fibre Broadband: Aptus fibre is completely unlimited data across all fibre packages, no limits, caps or fair usage just 100% unlimited data.

Wireless Broadband: Yes, our packages are unlimited. Aptus will never disconnect your service or charge you extra for going over a daily limit. We do operate a Fair Usage Policy (Applies to Aptus Wireless Broadband Only)

The performance of the Aptus network may be affected by a single user who unfairly takes advantage and exceeds a reasonable amount of data. In order to protect the service provided to all our other users, it may be necessary to restrict a user for a few hours. This resets every 24 hours. Over 99% of our users are never affected by this situation.
If you exceed the Fair Usage daily amount, you may not experience full-service speed until midnight of that day. At midnight your usage resets and your connection will return to full performance.
On the Aptus Ultra, Aptus Super Plus and Aptus Super, there are no hidden charges or extra fees for exceeding the Fair Usage Amount.
