With the bonus of Foxtel content, Telstra is obviously pushing the $99 plan in their new line-up. The $99 plan includes 20GB of data(12GB + 8GB bonus data), as well as unlimited talk and text to standard Australian numbers as well as calls to Bangladesh, Canada, China, Hong Kong, India, Lebanon, Malaysia, New Zealand, Pakistan, Singapore, South Korea, Sri Lanka, the UK, US and Vietnam.

The full line-up includes:

Pre-Paid Extra

For pre-paid customers, the big news is that Telstra Pre-Paid Extra customers can bank up to 50GB of unused data when recharging $30 or more before expiry. As usual, all the Telstra Pre-Paid Extra plans include unlimited talk, text and MMS to standard Australian numbers.

Mr Simpson said of the Data-Bank option

Data Bank is the next generation of our pre-paid offers. It combines the flexibility and great value of pre-paid while letting our customers keep their unused data to stream the latest music and entertainment on their mobile, when they like.

To kick off the data-bank Telstra is throwing in 5GB of bonus data to start customers data-bank if they activate a $10 or $30 SIM Starter Kit by 29 January 2018.

The new Pre-Paid plans include:

Wrap-up

Both the Telstra Pre-Paid and Post-Paid plans include access to unlimited Wi-Fi at Telstra Air hotspots around Australia, and include 6 months of access to Apple Music as well as other bonuses like NRL and AFL game streaming with zero-rated data.

Ugh, said nothing about this when I transferred from Optus to Telstra on Sunday… Oh well, that’s why I’m on pre-paid — options!

I see they have not changed the length of the prepaid plans and are still 28 days which is a ripoff still. I will stick to my solution of a longer life plan and carry around a prepaid wifi router which offers way better value for money especially for data and is good for sharing with your other devices too.

Interesting that they moved back to the “$X9” marketing spin values instead of the clean rounded values that they have been using over the past few years. e.g. $49 vs $50.
I know its nothing really, but it made comparing things so much easier… less head jumps required

If it had a sports pack, i’d consider it.
