Contract phone plans are a bad deal: not only are you stuck with the same phone and network for two years, you often end up with smaller data and call allowances than with a no-contract prepaid or month-by-month deal. We’ve eliminated the also-rans and come up with one firm recommendation for the best value no-contract prepaid deal on each of Australia’s mobile networks.
Netflix won’t be doing any more quota-free deals with Australian ISPs, but if you’re an Optus customer, today is the day that Netflix should stop counting against your cap.
Optus is boosting its mobile data allowance for new postpaid customers, including a generous 10GB per month on a $100 plan (up from 3GB). In addition, a new sharing option has been introduced that allows families to combine separate plans into one bill with data allowances shared across all devices. Optus has also added unlimited voice calls and text messages to all post-paid mobile plans. Here’s a look at what’s different.
Samsung’s Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge will be available outright in Australia in mid-April, but the outright purchase costs range from $999 to $1449. If that’s too steep and you’d prefer to buy one on a contract, we’ve rounded up every plan available for both phones in Australia from Optus, Telstra, Virgin Mobile and Vodafone so you can choose the one that’s right for your needs.
