Telstra ups data allowance for pre-paid Next G

Wireless broadband changes increase data and expiry periods

Telstra Next G users have long paid a premium for the network’s availability — higher than average data changes.

So news that the telco has increased the value of its Next G pre-paid wireless broadband recharge data allowances will be no doubt welcome. The changes come into effect 23 February and include increased data and longer recharge expiry periods. Telstra is also offering a 1GB bonus to new users to be used within 30 days of joining up.

Next G customers who recharge $40 will receive 1GB of data — up from 300MB. The $60 recharge option will offer 3GB of data, an increase of more than 2GB.

Customers must use the new 3GB allowance within 90 days and the 4GB allowance within 180 days of use before credit expires.

Telstra has moved to increase the value of its other plans in recent months, including fixed broadband, home plans, wireless consumer and business broadband.
