Prepaid Plus and data tethering

Answered

My wife and I are visting Aus in August, and need phone minutes,  and more importantly data as we're making the trip up as we go along! We're planning to buy a Telstra pre-paid plus sim, with a $40 or $50 dollar recharge.

 

Does this allow tethering from my mobile? I found a previous thread that said it did ( https://crowdsupport.telstra.com.au/t5/Mobile-Plans-Rates/Pre-paid-plan-for-vacation/m-p/566817/high... ) but it''s a year old and things may have changed (they do in the UK!) 

 

And, if that works can I use the Sim in a 4g data stick?

 

And finally are there any other better options?

 

Thanks

Re: Prepaid Plus and data tethering

Hi sportsnapper,

 

Yes, you can tether from your mobile phone with the Prepaid Plus offer. 

$40 recharge gives you 6GB , 3GB anytime data and a bonus 3GB night time data to use 8pm-8am Australian Eastern Standard Time for 28 days. 

$50 recharge gives you 8GB, 4GB anytime data and a bonus 4GB night time data to use 8pm-8am Australian Eastern Standard Time for 28 days. 

The bonus night time data ends on 4th September unless Telstra extends the date.

This would be the best Prepaid offer for your needs. 

 

I'm not sure if you can put the sim into a 4g data stick.
