Telstra boosts prepaid mobile data packs

Prepaid customers will receive more data at a lower cost

Telstra has announced a reshuffle of its data packs for prepaid mobile phones and will offer more data at a lower cost.

Prepaid browse plus packs can be purchased by Telstra customers who want to access the Internet on their mobile phone. The most notable changes include the base $5 pack, which has a new data allowance of 20MB (up from 5MB), and the $39 pack (750MB) which is $20 cheaper than previously.

Telstra has also added two new data packs for $49 and $79, offering customers 2GB and 4GB of data per month respectively, while $10 (150MB) and $20 (300MB) packs now include more data, up from 100MB and 200MB respectively.

Telstra says that once the customer has used all of their data allowance, an SMS will be sent to notify them. The customer then has the option of purchasing a new pack or browsing using the Pay As You Go rate of $2 per MB.

Telstra will also reward new prepaid mobile customers who purchase and activate a Telstra $2 starter kit before 31 August. These customers will receive 1000 bonus texts every time they recharge $30 or more for the next six months.

Telstra's 1c Text customers also receive some more good news, with Telstra doubling the included data when they recharge $30 or more. This is in addition to the bonus texts offer that Telstra announced last week, where a $30 recharge will land 1c customers 200 bonus texts.

For those customers who recharge $40 and normally would receive 20MB of included data per month, their data allowance will double to 40MB of data for use in Australia within 30 days.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
