Boost Bundle Data Offers To Combat ‘Dataphobia’
Boost Mobile has announced a number of new prepaid mobile packages ahead of Halloween.
A statement from the company reads:
“Boost has heard the harrowing screams of all Aussies and is looking to put their prepaid data woes to rest. This has seen the introduction of new fiercely competitive $10 & $30 UNLTD+™ offers, so if you’re not a fan of big data bills and you regularly find yourself drawn like a zombie to public Wi-Fi, Boost Mobile’s new offers will be the treat you seek this Halloween and beyond”
Boost Mobile’s new $10 UNLTD+ recharge offers unlimited calls and texts and 1GB of data with a 7-day expiry while their upgraded $30 UNLTD+ offers Unlimited calls and texts to standard Australian numbers, 3GB data plus bonus 1GB every weekend – totaling 7GB of data over 28 days
The new bundles come on the back of research, commissioned by Boost Mobile and undertaken by Digital Edge, which found that 40% of Australians aged 18-29 suffered from a phenomenon they termed ‘dataphobia’ – a fear of running out of data.
According to the study, “a whopping 59% will proactively and regularly check their data unprompted over the course of any given month.”
The new bundles are aimed at catering to that 40% and available to new and existing customers who activate a Boost handset or SIM pack from Tuesday 25th October 2016.
There will be no changes to the existing $40 UNLTD+™ or $50 UNLTD+™ plans.
