Australians love data, and we’re using it more and more every day. Sharing, streaming and downloading aren’t slowing down and neither should you.
That’s why we’re launching new Pre-Paid Mobile Broadband Data Passes which give you convenient new expiry options and more generous data inclusions for you to use on your tablet or compatible mobile broadband device
Whether you are using Pre-Paid mobile broadband for a short getaway, an extended holiday, or for regular use at home we’re giving you more value, more flexibility and more choice when you need to pack the internet with you.
For instance because we know many of you rely on mobile broadband for getaways , we’ve introduced a new 3 Day Pass and a 7-day Week Pass with heaps of data to help you stream more music, download more movies and catch up on the latest news headline while you are away.
You’ve also told us you’d like the convenience of a plan with a long expiry period, but our current long-expiry option could be more affordable. Because of this we’ve introduced a new Annual Pass which comes with 5GB of data all to use in Australia within 365 days for just $50.
This is my favourite plan and the one I’ll be using when I go on my annual winter getaway to Queensland.
Best of all, you can rollover your Pre-Paid Mobile Broadband Data pass credit when you recharge before the expiry date, helping you get the most out of your allowance. Simply recharge before your expiry date to keep unused credit or data.
All on Australia’s best mobile network
Whichever Pass you choose, you can enjoy being connected in more places on Australia’s largest and most reliable mobile network with the fastest 4G speeds in Australia on a compatible mobile device in 4GX areas.
Grab a great new device to go with your Pass.
And if you want to trade up to the latest high-speed mobile broadband technology, there are a number of 4GX compatible mobile broadband devices you can chose from including the Telstra Pre-Paid 4G My Pocket Wi-Fi Ultimate ($129RRP). It’s a light and compact hotspot that can connect up to 10 compatible Wi-Fi devices. Great for the next road trip or family holiday and comes loaded with 5GB of data to use in Australia in 30 days.
When you have some down time enjoy Presto on us
To help you experience the streaming video revolution, we’re also giving you a 3-month Presto subscription when you purchase one of our new passes. You can enjoy Presto on your compatible desktop, laptop, TV (via Chromecast), tablet or mobile. Data charges apply when streaming Presto over mobile networks.
The Bonus subscription means you can watch a great range of TV shows and movies on-demand and on-the-go, such as Modern Family, Sons of Anarchy, Ray Donovan and Girls.
