If you’re anything like me, you love an upgrade. Whether it’s getting a free muffin with your morning coffee or being upgraded to a fancy hotel room – getting a little bit extra can brighten up a day.

We think Telstra mobile customers also deserve a little extra, which is why we are introducing our new Telstra Upgrade offer.

From today, if you sign up to a new eligible Mobile Accelerate Plan you will be able to choose between 500MB of extra data to use in Australia or $500 worth of calls and MMS for use in Australian to standards Australian numbers, each month (all eligible plans already come with unlimited SMS).

This is not just a short-term offer. If you sign up to an eligible plan the Telstra Upgrade you choose is added to your plan for the life of your contract.

For example, if you take up a new $70 Mobile Accelerate Plan (Min cost $1,680 over 24 months) you could enjoy:

  • A data upgrade, giving you 2GB (instead of 1.5GB) each month, if you choose the 500MB data upgrade. That’s an extra 12GB of data to use in Australia over 24 months;


  • An extra $500 worth of calls and MMS for use in Australian to standard Australian numbers, taking your total included value to $1,200 of calls and MMS.

The great thing about the Telstra Upgrade it that it offers you choice and the ability to personalise your mobile plan – after all, we don’t all use our mobiles the same way.

For instance, I am definitely a “surfer” and enjoy browsing the web, so extra data is perfect for me. But I do know a lot of “talkers” who will love the option of upgrading their plan with an extra call allowance.

And don’t forget you also get to enjoy worry-free set up of your new phone with our Peace of Mind Commitment offer. When you sign up to an eligible Mobile Accelerate plan you will also get unlimited calls, text and MMS to standard Australian numbers and 25GB of data, all for use in Australia, for the first month. This means you can set-up and explore your new smartphone without the fear of running up a surprise bill.

You also get to use your Telstra Upgrade on Australia’s best mobile network covering 2.3 million square kilometres and four times the 4G mobile coverage area of any other Aussie mobile network.
