New Telstra Plans: Massive New Data Inclusions, Free Foxtel Presto

Looks like Telstra is gearing up for the mobile streaming revolution! The telco might not be unmetering Netflix on mobile, but it is throwing in loads of bonus data and Presto subscriptions for customers on all sorts of plans.

More Data

It's interesting to note that only new customers will be getting the bonus data allowances. Existing customers will have to recontract with the telco or watch on jealously.

Mobile Accelerate (Handset) Plans

• New Mobile Accelerate (Handset) customers on the $55 plan normally get 500MB per month, and under the new bonus offer they'll be getting 500MB extra, taking the total inclusions up to 1GB.

• New Mobile Accelerate (Handset) customers on the $70 plan normally get 1.5GB per month, and under the new bonus offer they'll be getting 1GB extra, taking the total inclusions up to 2.5GB.

• New Mobile Accelerate (Handset) customers on the $95 plan normally get 2.5GB per month, and under the new bonus offer they'll be getting 3.5GB extra, taking the total inclusion up to 6GB per month.

• New Mobile Accelerate (Handset) customers on the $130 plan normally get 3GB per month, and under the new bonus offer they'll be getting a whopping 7GB extra, taking the total inclusion up to 10GB per month. Not a bad deal if you're a big spender.

Hey, Presto

Obviously Telstra is in the business of pushing the Foxtel Presto service over Netflix, but that doesn't mean getting access to it for free is any less sweet.

Customers who take up new Mobile Accelerate plans for 24-months will get a free six-month subscription to Presto.

The changes take effect from April 9.
