Why Did Telstra Up The Price Of Its Prepaid Wireless Broadband?


It’s official. As reported yesterday, Telstra is upping the price of its top-tier prepaid wireless broadband product from $150 for 10GB over 365 days, to $180 for 12GB over 365 days. Why the hike?

Angus over at Lifehacker has the skinny. In short, Telstra says that the increase in price is due to a need for continuing investment into the company’s wireless networks. At least the big T has been kind enough to hand over a few extra gigabytes of usage with the price hike.

Lifehacker has also got a look at what the new price means for those shopping around the prepaid wireless broadband market. [Lifehacker Australia]
