Telstra's new Next G prepaid wireless plans come with 1GB free upfront, plus up to six months expiry on recharges -- can anyone say "perfect for Apple iPad?"
Telstra has boosted the value of its pre-paid mobile broadband packages on its Next G network, giving new customers a 1GB welcome pack and allocating longer expiry periods for data.
The telco offers a range of pre-paid options that allow customers to recharge their accounts in increments ranging from $20 all the way up to $150, with associated data allowances. For most recharge amounts, the data allowance will expire within 30 days. However, now customers who recharge $130 or $150 worth of data will be able to keep the data allowances allocated until 90 and 180 days, respectively, according to a statement issued by Telstra today.
Several of the recharge options have had the amount of data received bumped up — the $40 recharge option has been boosted from 300MB to 1GB, and the $60 option has been jumped from 2GB to 3GB. In addition, all new pre-paid customers will now receive 1GB of ‘welcome’ data, to be used within 30 days.
Telstra has also recently upped the value of its post-paid wireless plans, as well as its fixed-line broadband plans. The following recharge packages will apply from tomorrow (23 February).
