In case you need more reasons to connect to the nation’s best mobile network, today we’re giving you three.

From September 16 and for a limited time, we’re giving you more when you sign up to a $70 or above Mobile Accelerate Plan for 24 months:

  1. Switch and trade in: Receive credits of up to $450 when you move your number to Telstra and incur contract breakage fees and trade in your old phone, and sign up to a new eligible 24 month handset payment and mobile plan.
  2. Enjoy that new phone feeling more often: Receive the Telstra New Phone Feeling® offer for no additional charge (normally $10/mth) when taking up some of this year’s most desirable eligible smartphones.
  3. Boost your upgrade: Get the choice of 1GB of extra data to use in Australia or $1000 worth of calls and MMS for use in Australian to standards Australian numbers, each month.

We also know that you’re looking for more than just more data – you’re looking for a great quality data experience. That’s why we’re investing around $1 billion dollars in our mobile network this financial year, so we can continue to offer our customers the speed, reliability and coverage you’ve have come to expect from us.

As you may have seen, we’re currently in the process of upgrading our mobile network, rolling out new 4G services on the 700MHz band in selected areas. This includes selected areas of Sydney and Adelaide later this month.

We also want to reward our current customers too, by waiving early termination charges for those of you in the last three months of your contract who trade up to the latest smartphone technology. We’re launching this in September for a limited time. And you’ll be eligible for Telstra’s trade in offer too.
