As we're all aware - and probably sick of hearing -- NBN speeds are a contentious topic. Picking an NBN plan should be a simple equation where we weigh up the speed and data included in a plan versus the price you pay. But it hasn't turned out to be so neat and tidy.

Is it about time for your kids to have their own smartphone? Perhaps you're concerned about their safety and want them to stay in touch, or perhaps you're just sick of them begging to play Minecraft and Fortnite on your phone.

If there's one phone myth that needs to be extinguished, it’s that older Australians don't need a great phone or a high-value phone plan. We used to work on the assumption that seniors almost never used their handsets and recommend only the cheapest phone plans, with no mobile data and long credit expiry.

Telstra kicked off its T22 strategy this week launching a bunch of new plans, including an unlimited data behemoth, and introducing its new 'Peace of Mind' data bolt on, designed to save you from excess data usage fees.

The Peace of Mind Data add-on costs $10 per month and is available for all post-paid mobile plans, except the unlimited plan, which doesn't need the option. Once activated, your data service is throttled to 1.5Mbps when you hit your data limits, rather than paying $10 per extra gigabyte of data they use before the end of the month.

We tend to think of the internet as a set-and-forget utility, like electricity, but it doesn’t have to be. If you’re the sort of person who loves chasing credit card balance transfer deals, this will appeal to you.

Back in the days when modems sounded like a goat stuck in a barbed wire fence, the amount of data we paid for was the key decision we had to make when signing up for the internet. I spent ages trying to calculate how much data I needed based on how much junk I downloaded through Limewire and Kazaa.

Slowly but surely, Telstra is shedding its premium pricing position. There's still a long way to go before you'd consider Telstra plans cheap, but there are a few standout options that are certainly good value, like its Mx online only plan, and a number of its prepaid options.

Telstra executives gathered this week to discuss Telstra2020; a bold vision of the future involving simplified systems, fast 5G and the axing of 8000 jobs. Bold indeed. Intermingled with conversation about its business structure was the news that Telstra will soon make big changes to its mobile phone plans - specifically that it will cut all excess data usage charges.
