Telstra hedges overseas roaming costs with travel passes

Roaming overseas is still pricey business.

Telstra introduced ‘international roaming travel passes’ yesterday which substitute expensive overseas roaming charges for one-time monthly add-ons.

A total of 40 countries are covered by the two travel pass packs. Each pack offers unlimited international calls and texts, along with data allowances starting from 150MB.

Zone 1 covers three countries with New Zealand, Thailand and Indonesia, and starts at $15 for three days.

Most countries fall under Zone 2, including Hong Kong, the US and the UK. A 3 day Zone 2 travel pass will cost $30 at these countries, while a 30 day pass will cost $300.

The packs came into effect on 9 December 2014. Check the table below for full pricing and inclusions.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
