Telstra has responded to Australia’s rapid wireless broadband adoption and given its wireless broadband plans a boost, increasing data allowances across its range of plans.
A report from the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) said the wireless broadband uptake grew by 162 per cent in 2009 and wireless subscribers accounted for a quarter of all Internet users.
Telstra Consumer group acting managing director, Glenice Maclellan, claimed the revamped plans, which come into effect on January 18, offer “exceptional value”.
The new offerings include:
- The addition of a 3GB and 6GB plan
- Doubling the monthly data allowance on its entry level plan to 400MB
- No additional usage charges on new plans
- Rebates of up to $299 for a new USB or $200 for a wireless gateway.
Telstra has also announced loyalty discounts and additional savings for customers with multiple products.
Telstra’s plans are notoriously more expensive than its competitors’ wireless broadband plans, but the telco boasts Australia’s fastest and largest network.
