September 14, 2017: Telstra has today unveiled its new Go Mobile Plus and Pre-Paid Extra mobile plans, which offer generous data inclusions and unlimited standard international calls from Australia to more destinations than ever before.
As the holiday season approaches, Telstra’s new mobile plans will make it easy for customers to keep in touch with family and friends overseas during special holidays like Christmas or the Lunar New Year.
“Keeping in touch with loved ones, especially during celebrations and seasonal holidays, is incredibly important to our customers,” said Michael Simpson, Executive Director of Telstra Mobile Products.
“With unlimited standard calls from Australia to even more international destinations included in many of our new mobile plans, we’re helping our customers stay in touch to their family and friends from around the world with the peace of mind that they can chat away as long as they want to, when they want.”
Telstra Go Mobile Plus Plans
Telstra has extended the number of international destinations customers can make unlimited calls to in its refreshed Go Mobile Plus plans from 10 to 15, with customers able to make calls from Australia to the following eligible counties: Bangladesh, Canada, China, Hong Kong, India, Lebanon, Malaysia, New Zealand, Pakistan, Singapore, South Korea, Sri Lanka, UK, USA and Vietnam.
Those taking up a $59 or $79 Go Mobile Plus plan can make calls from Australia to these 15 international destinations at PAYG (pay as you go) rates or purchase a $10 per month International Call Pack for unlimited standard standard international calls and SMS, while those on plans priced from $99 to $149 will receive unlimited standard international calls and SMS from Australia to these 15 destinations included in their plans. Customers taking up the $199 plan will receive unlimited international calls and SMS from Australia to standard international numbers in all countries.
Catering to Australians’ growing appetite for mobile data and streaming on the go, Telstra has also partnered with Foxtel to put the best binge-worthy entertainment into the palms of customers’ hands with the inclusion of a 12 month Foxtel Now subscription on selected pans.
Customers who take up $99 and above Go Mobile Plus plans before 25 December 2017 will receive Telstra’s most generous data inclusions yet and a 12 month subscription for up to three Foxtel Now Starter Packs (valued at up to $420), choosing from Pop, Drama, Docos, Kids, and Lifestyle options – for a truly personalised entertainment experience.
The plans also include all the extras exclusively available to Telstra mobile customers like unlimited Wi-Fi at over one million Telstra Air hotspots around Australia and 20 million Fon hotspots worldwide, all the 2017 finals action live and data free on the AFL and NRL apps and data free music streaming of Apple Music.
With a 12 month subscription to one Foxtel Now starter pack and 20GB of data (12GB + 8GB bonus data), the new $99 Go Mobile Swap lease plan is expected to be popular with customers looking to get their hands on the latest smartphone (min cost $2,376 for 24 months).
“Customer demand for mobile data has grown nearly 50 per cent every year since 2014 as smartphones have become our most personal and important communication device,” said Mr Simpson.
