Telstra Takes On Optus With New Unlimited Data Plans
Telstra has thrown down the gauntlet against rival, Optus, and launched its new ‘unlimited’ data plan – a $60 SIM-only plan with 40GB of data at its fastest 4G speeds.
Once the 40GB data mark is reached, consumers’ speeds slow down to 1.5Mbps. The telco has advised, however, that speeds may slow down in “busy periods”.
Telstra’s new ‘Endless Data BYO Plan’ will roll out from May 3rd – totalling $828 over 12 months.
Unlimited texts and calls to standard Australian numbers is included, with further information available on Telstra’s website here.
As an added sweetener, Telstra’s new plan includes free streaming of several sporting games including the 2018 season of AFL and NRL (excluding Grand Finals and State of Origin).
The news comes after Optus debuted its unlimited data mobile plan, etching its place as the first Aussie telco to do so.
