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.

For example, if you take up our $95 Mobile Accelerate Plan, you will receive a bonus 3.5GB of data for a total data allowance of 6GB per month to use in Australia, for the life of your contract (Min cost $2280 over 24 months, excess data 3c/MB).

And if you’re a small business customer, you can take up a $65 and above Easy Share Business Plan with a new handset and receive bonus data ranging between 500MB and 6GB per month to use in Australia depending on the plan level you take up (Min cost $1560 over 24 months, excess data 3c/MB).

Got your own smartphone but still need a data boost? We’ve got you covered too. From 9 April, we’re boosting the data allowances of our Mobile Accelerate BYO and Casual Plans, making them more attractive than ever for you to bring your own compatible handset and connect to Australia’s best mobile network. Depending on the plan level chosen, you will enjoy a bonus data boost ranging between 500MB and 7GB per month for the life of your contract to use in Australia.

No matter which plan you choose, you’ll be able to enjoy top TV shows and movies with a six month Presto subscription included with every Mobile Accelerate Plan and Business Easy Share Plan from 9 April. You can access Presto on your compatible desktop, laptop, TV (via Chromecast), tablet or smartphone. Data charges apply when streaming Presto on the over mobile networks.

And of course, as a Telstra customer you get to enjoy being connected in more places on Australia’s largest and most reliable mobile network with the fastest 4G speeds in Australia – up to twice as fast as Telstra’s regular 4G – on a compatible mobile device in 4GX areas.

Check our table below to see the best plan for you and what data boosts are available.

Don’t forget, as a Telstra customer you also receive:

  • Unlimited calls SMS and MMS plus 25GB of data for use in Australia in the first month so you can set up and explore your new smartphone with plenty of data
  • Industry-leading real-time mobile data alerts that notify you when you have used 50 per cent, 85 per cent and 100 per cent of your included data allowance.

Effective Thursday 9 April.
