Data Plans

Answered

I have a data plan for iPad for backup if I am travelling intrastate or for when power fails or other emergency that can and does happen.  It is only $50.00 for 365 days but now find that Telstra have altered all their plans and this will now cost $150.  I appreciate that the data allowance was only 7gb and will now be 40gb as I understand it but find that this increase seems exorbitant.  Am I understanding this change correctly and is anybody else amazed or upset with this increase

Re: Data Plans

Hi ccmc,

 

I was also on $50/ 12 months expiry for my Pre-Paid mobile broadband service until Telstra forced me onto the current Pre-Paid Mobile broadband plan on 9th June.

 

Yes, I'm amazed and upset along with the many others customer's who are experiencing the same. 

I'm not going to pay an extra $100 a year to Telstra when I can use other providers that are cheaper and offer the same amount of data or more data.

 

I'd suggest if you live in an area that doesn't just rely on Telstra as the provider to shop around. You'll find a better deal.

I am NOT a Telstra employee and never have been. However, I AM a customer who volunteer's my time in the hope to help someone with their question.
