Telstra has never been the most generous telco when it comes to mobile data allowances -- which is why its latest Go Mobile BYO plan is so surprising. For a limited time, new customers can get a massive 7GB of data on a 12-month contract for just $40 per month. This is one of the best deals we've seen, on Australia's most reliable network. What's not to like?
To put the new Go Mobile BYO plan into perspective, customers on Telstra's $40 "M" plan currently receive 2.5GB of data. My own Telstra plan -- which I'll be cancelling this week -- comes with just 1.5GB of data for $49 per month.
In addition to the aforementioned data allowance, the plan also provides $1000 of free calls per month and unlimited SMS/MMS. (There are zero free international calls, however.) If you have Telstra home broadband, you can get a further $10 off via a bundled discount.
All told, the new deal works out to a minimum spend of $480 over 12 months. Your move Optus/Vodafone.
