Boost’s 4G plans are nice and simple – they only have four of them. All offer unlimited calls and texts to anywhere in Australia. Furthermore, the top two plans add unlimited calls and texts to ten major countries: Canada, China, Hong Kong, India, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, United Kingdom and the US.
So, unlimited calls and texts on the Telstra 4G network – that’s going to cost a fair bit, right? Actually, no it’s not! Boost’s entry-level plan might not be generous with its data allowance (it’s only 1GB, which is plenty for occasional users but not so great for the Facebook-obsessed); but then you see the price. Ten dollars. Yep, that’s a tenner for unlimited calls and texts! What’s the catch? Well, you’d guess right if you figured it wasn’t that easy – those 10 bucks only lasts 7 days. However, that makes it the perfect plan to get friends connected while on holiday, as a temporary phone for a family member while they travel, and of course for tourists visiting Australia.
If you want your unlimited 4G calls and texts paid by the month, go for the $30 plan. It gives you 3GB of data to play with and drops an extra 1GB onto your account every weekend. The two plans above add international calls to the mix while ramping up the data allowance, all with that 1GB weekend bonus – 9G in total for $40 and 11GB for $50 per 28 days.
Boost plans are contract-free and prepaid. You can move up or down between plans (or just pause your service for a while) any time you need to. On all plans, voicemail deposit and retrieval is unlimited as well. So is MMS messaging, including everything from photos to video and audio messages.
Oh, and one more handy thing. If you’re an iPhone user enjoying the Apple Music streaming service, you can stream as much music as you like on Boost Mobile without touching your data allowance.
