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.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
