Telstra readies for Galaxy S6 launch with bonus data and bundled Presto

Up to 10GB per month

Customers buying a Samsung Galaxy S6 from Telstra can bundle the smartphone with plans that offer up to 10GB in data and a free subscription to the video-on-demand service Presto.

The revised plans come into effect on 9 April and run for a limited time to new and existing customers.

Samsung begins globally rolling out its Galaxy S6 on 10 April in 20 markets. The smartphone manufacturer is expected to announce the local availability of the S6 and S6 Edge at a launch event being held today.

Extra data is being offered on the Telstra's mobile accelerate-, BYO- and business easy-share plans.

Only the top-tier mobile accelerate plans will benefit from additional data. The $95 plan now comes with a total of 6GB, while the $130 plan has increased to 10GB.

More data is being offered on Telstra’s BYO plans. The revised $55 and $70 plans under the range come with 2GB and 3.5GB of total data. These 12-month plans do not come with a new smartphone.

Telstra is bundling a six-month subscription to Presto Entertainment with the plans. Using Presto is metered and therefore can result in extra costs.

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

Anthony Grifoni


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

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

Andrew Mitsi


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.

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.
