I have International roaming on my regular Optus mobile plan. If I use my phone as a mobile hotspot for my iPad, is the data usage included in my 1G roaming data allowance or is this data charge the usual extravagant roaming rate?

It's inlcuded in the 1GB but the cost if you go over the 1GB is quite high so be careful, especially tethering. A lot of mobiles/tablets have settings like "only update over WiFi" on by default so your iPad could chew through a lot of data very quickly
Hey @Lomblers - if you used your mobile as a hotspot, the usage would go against your 1GB allowance. As @SamSam mentioned though, if you exceed that 1GB allowance, you'll be charged for each MB of roaming data usage.
