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.

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.
