In mid 2017 the race for mobile customers is mainly about data. Of course for those who want unlimited calls and texts, most of the major networks will throw those in for next to nothing, in the mobile age data is the real commodity. Recently Telstra seem to have quietly launched an update to their Mx online-only SIM-only plan giving you 12GB of data for $50 per month.
For those unfamiliar with the Telstra’s ‘x’ plans, they are online only plans meaning that signing up for these plans means you won’t be able to get service in store or via the call centre. Any service issues you have will have to be resolved using Telstra 24/7 chat system or their crowd sourced web portal.
The updated Mx plan will give you unlimited national Calls, texts and MMS, 12 GB of data and unlimited calls and texts to standard international numbers for 10 countries listed countries: China, India, UK, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, USA and Canada.
Being a Telstra mobile customer also gives you free access to Telstra Air Wi-Fi network (which can be very handy), zero-rated access to Apple Music for six months, 2 years free access to 200GB of OneDrive storage and 2 free rentals from BigPond Movies in your first month.
For many people Telstra’s network is the only viable option to get a reliable data connection; if you’re in that situation and this plan is an improvement for you why not contact Telstra and look at switching, or even negotiating a better deal for yourself?
Of course, if your mobile needs can be service by any of the other providers Vodafone is still offering 18GB for $50 while Optus has 15GB for only $40, and that’s without negotiating a better deal or looking at the MVNO deals on offer.
