If you’re looking for Telstra deals online you will be faced with a mind-boggling list of results. We break down the basic options available to help you save time and money.
Why choose Telstra? The company has quite the reputation for reliable coverage and great product quality. It prides itself on delivering an excellent product, so prices of its mobile plans and broadband deals tend to reflect that fact. However, the telco often offers amazing discount bundle prices for clients who choose more than one service. Concerning the downsides, we could only find one: a lot of customers complain that the company falls short when it comes to its technical support department. You can’t have it all, we guess.
If you’re just looking for broadband, no frilly extras included, you can pick between three plans:
- M – it includes 500GB of data for $80; recommended for families that watch videos online or download lots
- Big Data – it includes 1000GB of data for $90/month; ideal for heavy internet users who need the most from their Internet connection (videos, downloading, gaming, streaming)
Telstra customers can opt for a 24-month contract, or they can pay on a month-to-month basis (great if you don’t want to be tied down). An additional fee of $240 may apply if you require a professional installation.
Your monthly data allowance can be topped up for free 3 times a year if you exceed your monthly data allowance. Not too shabby.
Plus, you can use your broadband allowance at thousands of hotspots across Australia and millions more overseas on an eligible plan via Telstra Air. How does it work? Telstra Air will share a portion of your home Wi-Fi connection to create a hotspot that others can use. When you’re out and about, you can also access other Telstra Air hotspots using your home broadband allowance to give you more connection options. Telstra offers broadband plans based on clients’ Internet habits. Photo: Telstra
