If you fancy a shiny new Galaxy Note9, Telstra is offering some pretty sweet deals. Along with the Note9, which comes with 512GB of storage for the price of 128GB, Telstra is throwing in a Galaxy Tab A at no extra cost. The device is being offered under Telstra's new plans, which aim to simplify life for consumers.
Telstra's Blue Tick certifies that mobile handsets conform to a set of standards the carrier says ensures you get the best possible coverage on their network. And while many popular handsets offer that certification, one flagship handset doesn't. Apple's iPhone X is not listed among Telstra's Blue Tick certified handsets.
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.
Last week, the Federal Court of Australia directed 49 ISPs to block access to websites that are engaged in providing pirated TV shows and movies. The action launched by Foxtel is all about curbing access to some of its centrepiece shows such as Game of Thrones and Wentworth. But what does the ruling mean and will it have wider repercussions?
Telstra has announced a massive tranche of changes to the company's structure and operations. And while the news is really terrible for the 8000 employees who will see their jobs disappear, there's also the broader impact to the rest of the community. The vast majority of Telstra's phone and internet plans are set to be permanently "retired". Here's what this means for existing customers.
Telstra is in a bit of a crisis mode. With its share price tumbling to a five-year low, a decline in mobile and fixed line revenues and ongoing issues with its network, it has become clear that a change is in order. That change came today, with Telstra CEO Andy Penn announcing the "Telstra2022" initiative.
In short, this is a major restructuring of the company that will see the creation of a new infrastructure business, a simplification of Telstra's product offerings and the axing of 8000 jobs. Here's what you need to know.
Virgin Mobile is not long for this world. Over the next two years, parent company Optus will be phasing out the brand and is likely to move all customers to its own network. So why stick around?
Here are the best equivalent plans from Virgin Mobile's rivals - many of which boast better data allowances and pricing. Make the switch now.
Most businesses have disaster recovery and business continuity plans. Often, they are baked into the design of systems so, if something goes wrong, another system picks up the load and things keep running, more or less, as designed. If you think about a modern passenger jet, there are lots of redundant systems so it's highly unlikely the failure of a single part causes a disaster. Telstra's recent season of outages continued yesterday with a problem that knocked out much of their phone and data network. But should the outage have been avoidable?
