Telstra Updates Its Cap Plans, Adds Some Data

My biggest concern with Telstra's launch of the HTC Desire was that even though it was free on a $69 plan over 24 months, there wasn't any included data at all. Telstra's new cap plans address that a bit, with the phone now available for $0 outright on a $79 cap plan, which includes $750 of standard voice, SMS, MMS and Video Calls plus 500MB of data. Hope you didn't sign up to the $69 plan...

Other plans worth taking note of are the $49 cap plan which includes $400 worth of call stuff and 200MB of data and the $129 cap which has 1000MB and $1,500 of included calls and messages.

It's not all good news though - anyone currently on contract won't be automatically upgraded - you'll need to see out your contract first. And the Desire isn't available for $0 up front on the $49 cap plan either...

Still, this is actually pretty competitive with the other telcos. Sure, it's still a premium, but you do get superior network coverage and reliability...
