If Telstra is your telco of choice, and you're looking for a new plan, we've got you covered. While "best" definitely isn't a one size fits all kind of phrase, we've tried to pick out a couple of deals that offer great value.
Telstra has just refreshed its Mobile plans, SIM plans and Pre-paid plans. This month, we've taken a look at some of the best deals for phones on a contract, bang-for-buck BYO, and a top-notch prepaid deal.
If you'd prefer to find yourself a deal, check out the rest of Telstra's plans, here.
Best phones on a contract
Telstra mobile plans are now packed with better-value international and entertainment inclusions. On the $99 Large Plan, you get unlimited national talk & text, 20GB data (includes 8GB bonus), unlimited international talk & text to 15 selected destinations, as well as 12 month subscription on Foxtel Now with 1 Starter Pack.
You will pay a bit extra on the Large Plan to get the new Samsung Galaxy Note8, which costs $129/month over 24 months contract. If you pre-order the device before 22 September, you will also get a bonus Galaxy Tab A 8.0" and a bonus wireless charger via redemption.
If you'd like something slightly cheaper, you can get the LG G6 (which is also an amazing phone) included on the $99 Large Plan.
No matter what phone you go for, if you sign up to Telstra's $99 Large plan, you'll also get an AFL, NRL and Netball sports pass, and six-months of free access to Apple Music, both of which are data free on Telstra.
Best BYO plan
If you want to keep your current phone, Telstra's best BYO plan will give you 10GB of data and unlimited talk & text, for only $49 per month. In order to get this offer, you'll need to sign a 12-month contract and manage your service online.
