Optus Turbo Max Prepaid Plan Loads Up The Data

Prepaid phone plans often compete on call minutes and text tallies, but Optus' Turbo Max plan has a feature that isn't seen as often: a large wodge of data for browsing on your phone.

The $100 Turbo Max plan includes 3,000 minutes of calls, 3,000 texts and 2GB of data for each $100 recharge. As is typical with prepaid plans, you have to use that value within 30 days. If you're a regular user, you could probably get better value on a post-paid plan, but the data inclusion does make this plan stick out a little from the prepaid pack. Optus is obviously getting keen on the Turbo branding, having rolled out Turbo Text last month.

    I mentioned last week that data is going to be the next prepaid battle ground. Now Vodafone and 3 will be looking to follow. 2GB is a lot. Double what the Turbo Cap offers for same recharge value.

    Very interesting... But I'd say if you just want data that Virgin has a much better option, $15 for 1GB.

    I don't know about other carriers but I would believe that it should almost always be cheaper to have your normal prepaid balance and add data usage. If you're paying $100/month on prepaid, you may as well go postpaid and add on data usage.
