I've got a prepaid account with the current Mobile Broadband (Telstra Pre Paid Mobile Broadband Plus) product as of Feb 2018. About to recharge the $150 for 40GB (usually 25) with 365 days expiry. My question is if I know in advance I will use a lot of data in a particular 28 day period so therefore add one of the 28 day recharges during the year the original 40GB is valid, which data pool does it come out of? Will the data with soonest expiry be used first? Or first purchased? (which means there's no point, I'd just be better off running down the 40GB before buying any more) Or last purchased?

Hmm...will be interesting to see if there's any official take on that from Telstra.
Looking at the prices there's not a lot of saving in the lower price recharges compared to the rate of the $150 recharge; the $50 is a little bit better value if I was going to use most of the 10/20GB in the month. In that case with the scenario you describe, the best option would then just be to buy another SIM as separate service!
