new Prepaid Mobile Broadband Rates per MB ?

Answered

I have used the 'pre-paid Data+ Cap' plan for a number of years, paying $180 per year.

 

I know I am paying  $1.46 per MB currently , but  I see now at recharge time, there are new offers available.

'Telstra Prepaid Mobile Broadband Data Pass..'

 

I have the option to stay in the old current plan, or change to the new, but can't go back to the old if I change.?

 

Can anyone tell me 'What are the charges per MB for the new plans please?' as I can't find it written anywhere..

 

Telling me that 'for $140 I can have 16 GB over 2years with a 2 year pass'  if the rates per MB are higher, my 16GB will be gone long before the 2years are up. 

 

                                                                               Thank you for any help..  Smiley Happy

G'day musical, a little matter of mathss. 1000mb per GB. 100 cents to the dollar. Therefore 14000 cents divided by 16000mb =0.875 cents per mb. You are definitly better off with the new plans.

The data pass is advertised as $30 for 3 gig, but when I went to recharge it was still $50 for 3 gig.

This is blatant false advertisiing. 

 

I have switched to Vodafone & now I get 2 gig for $15.

I have a Telstra Prepaid Plus $30 plan for my mobile. I have the data blocked as I wish to use the phone as a phone (I have an ipad and laptop for date usage). While I like the $700 call credit and unlimited texts, I will not use the call credit in the 28 days of this plan. I am sure there are others like me who would love to have the features of this plan over 60 days. Telstra is not addressing a huge section of their market! I am also miffed at Telstra and many other providers moving from monthly to 28 day billing - a cynical grab for money! Your customers are not impressed. the providers who return to/stay with monthly billing will pick up many of your dissatisfied customers. 

I prefer to stay with Telstra given the choice. Here is your opportunity to introduce a plan for us baby boomers or others who do not need data on their phones...

@AliceStreet

Thanks for the feedback about our offers. we assess these frequently and make changes where appropriate to ensure we're competitive in the market.

 

As you've mentioned, Telstra is not the only provider with offers similar to our own.

If you're looking for a Prepaid Offer that does not include a data allowance you may like to check out our other offers on our website that also include different expiry times and validity periods.

 

I hope that helps.
