Telstra goes unlimited on $129 Cap

in brief Telstra has once again beefed-up the value of its mobile cap plan offerings by giving customers unlimited calls and texts on its $129 cap plan.

According to a blog post on Telstra Exchange today, the cap now includes:

  • Unlimited standard national voice and video calling
  • Unlimited standard national SMS to any Australian mobile network
  • Unlimited MessageBank
  • 3GB worth of data
  • $50 of included value for calls, SMS, MMS and video to international numbers.

Telstra is set to include its new Windows Phone 7 offering, the LG Optimus 7Q, on the revamped $129 cap. The LG Optimus 7Q is set to hit stores from November.

The previous incarnation of the $129 cap came after Telstra significantly overhauled its plan offerings, with $1500 worth of included usage per month, and 1GB worth of data to boot.

pretty paltry offering, Telstra.

with optus, for $30 less per month than Telstra is charging, i get a much better deal (especially with data allowance)

* Unlimited standard national voice and video calling

* Unlimited standard national SMS and MMS to any Australian mobile network

* Unlimited voicemail deposits/retrieval

* 5GB worth of data

* $100 of included value for calls, SMS, MMS and video to international numbers.

But how could you possibly compare Telstra to Optus for quality, service and reliability, not to mention speed. My girlfriend and several mates have optus for their i-phones. I don't know how people can tolerate it. It is like comparing 56k dial up to ADSL2.

You have got to be kidding. Telstra and service do not go together. Optus actual has service to their customers. If you want to talk about speed, Every time I use my optus mobile, I always have coverage, but everyone around with Telstra has problems of dropping out or massive speed drops, but hey, I am in a country area I suppose. Hang on, Telstra thinks they have 99% of Australia covered. What utter rubbish!

Sorry if this is a double post, Dean, Telstra is careful with their coverage statement.

It is 99% of population.
not landmass
I am also a big Telstra Basher as well, but their plans are becoming more attractive
