Five years ago, we started including a new type of allowance in our mobile plans – mobile data!
Back then not even the most prescient amongst us could have imagined how useful the mobile web and ‘appification’ of everything would make our mobiles.
Now, the mobile web is as important to our daily smartphone experience as voice and text.
It’s so vital that many of you tell us that from time to time you find yourselves using more data in a month than your plan allowance caters for.
Traditionally, when this happens additional data use is charged at excess data rates – which some of you have told us can be a hassle to track.
Ahead of one of the year’s hottest smartphone launches, we’re boosting the value of some of our most popular mobile plans by including more data and introducing a bonus six month subscription for one of the leading TV and movie streaming service Presto, starting 9 April.
From 9 April, if you take up Mobile Accelerate and Easy Share Business Plans you’ll get a six month bonus Presto subscription included so you can enjoy the latest TV shows and movies – including Modern Family, Girls, Ray Donovan and Sons of Anarchy.
And to cater for your ever-growing love of sharing, surfing and streaming while on the go, we’re also offering a data boost on eligible plans.
Imagine a world where your car whisks you safely from A to B without you even having to place a hand on the steering wheel.
Or, a car so intelligent it can find and direct you to the nearest parking space.
Or, imagine being able to avoid a costly breakdown because your car gets in touch with your mechanic automatically for a remote check-up when its performance skips a beat.
You’re imagining the world of the connected car – and it’s much closer than you might think.
If fact, for some lucky motorists a taste of this world is already here thanks to last week’s official launch of the Tesla Model S electric car in Australia.
We’re really excited to be providing mobile connectivity to power multiple state-of-the-art features in the Model S including the infotainment and remote diagnostics systems.
