About Telstra Mobile

With decades of experience in operating Australia’s largest and most technologically advanced mobile network, Telstra is the first choice for those who want the widest coverage across the country. With so many people now choosing their mobile phone as their primary means of communication, reliability is everything – you want a network that just works, whether you’re in the heart of a capital city or out on a long, desolate stretch of highway.

Telstra’s mobile network was Australia’s first, and has evolved with the latest technologies to make sure that customers get crystal-clear calls and lightning-fast mobile broadband across more of Australia than any other provider. Fresh innovations such as HD calling became available on the Telstra network first, and their advanced data network regularly reaches download speeds that make the wired NBN look sluggish by comparison.

Completing the connectivity picture is Telstra’s innovative addition of Wi-Fi to their plans in the form of Telstra Air, which gives customers a huge open Wi-Fi network to take advantage of in order to save on mobile data costs. Leveraging on-street phone booths and special customer Wi-Fi equipment, Telstra Air gives customers gigabytes of extra data that doesn’t drain their precious mobile allowance.

Though they’ve been thought of as a costly choice in years past, Telstra’s mobile pricing has become incredibly competitive in recent years, with large data allowances and unlimited calls available for a modest price that offers the unique value of access to the entire Telstra network – if you want the fastest download speeds and the best call quality, you’ll get it. Special deals are offered regularly, too – be sure to check out the latest news below for what’s currently available.
While you’ll almost always get better overall value on a contract – even a SIM-only plan – Telstra’s been upping the stakes in the past year with some very tasty freebies on top of your monthly rate. Through partnerships with providers like Apple Music, the AFL and the NRL they’ve given customers free access to unlimited streaming music and season-long access to streaming video of Australia’s two big football codes. They also have regular offers of heavily discounted tickets to movies, concerts and other events.

Telstra Mobile Review: Telstra

Telstra is most definitely at the front of the pack when it comes to mobile providers in Australia, boasting an extensive, blisteringly fast network that’s equipped with the latest tech to take full advantage of the current generation of smartphones. While it’s by no means the cheapest choice when it comes to getting your mobile connected, it’s hard to go past the sheer technical quality of the service.

Telstra Mobile FAQs

Telstra has been innovating in providing what the technical types call Voice over LTE (VoLTE) on their 4G network for phones that support it (among them, the latest iPhones and Samsung Galaxy phones). With one of these devices in a 4G coverage area, it uses the super-fast 4G network for your voice calls. The result is near-instant call connection and, when calling another person with a compatible phone, astonishingly clear voice quality. If you have a compatible phone and you’re on Telstra’s network, it’s enabled for you automatically at no extra cost.
Absolutely not – Telstra offers month-by-month plans that can give you unlimited calls and huge data caps. The monthly cost tends to be a tiny bit higher than contract plans, but gives you the freedom to change providers if you need to. Alternatively, you can get better pricing on a 12-month BYO-phone contract, or get yourself a shiny brand new phone on a 24-month deal. The choice is yours.
No need to worry if you can’t let go of that trusty old iPhone that’s served you well – Telstra’s move to a high-tech 4G network hasn’t left their 3G coverage behind. Telstra’s voice coverage is still mainly serviced by the 3G network, and the arrival of 4G voice coverage isn’t going to change the superb coverage and quality of it one bit.
