    If this goes on sale to $75 that would be great

      Nah, $120 for 12 months, with 120GB limit… we'll see it sooner or later.
      Boost, do this sooner than later please!

      (we don't care about 5G, at least not until 2022)
      (maybe do a 5G deal for $50 monthly with 100GBs, then most of us can replace our NBN-100 connections)

    TA, as the Prominent deal maker, please negotiate with Boost to lower their 12mth prepaid SIM to $100 mark.

    I believe most people here would switch in a heart beat.

      Why not make it $85?

      It's already comfortably the best deal for moderate data users, and it's on Telstra 4G as a bonus. What incentive would they have to discount it futher?

      When a big nerd like me and my grandma are both on the same phone plan if anything it says to me they have failed to differentiate the market and are charging too little (not that I want them to stop).

      • -12 votes

        are charging too little

        AUS are paying too much for almost everything… ask your colleagues, friends, travel a bit, talk to locals… y'll see

        does your Gran need 80GB of data, or UNLIMITED INTERNATIONAL STANDARD CALLS & TEXT??? how much she used every mth?

        yet she is using it as she couldn't find a better deal. in other words, she is paying too much.

          Actually I have travelled and our 4G data prices are very good for the performance we get.

            @samfisher5986: have u been to Taiwan or Korean??? Tried their local sims?!!

            how about CN90 ($18.75)/mth unlimited mobile data in CN, that was the price 3yrs ago when I working on a project there. My friend there told me the price is getting lower every year.

              @alexGoodwin: If you can find me a plan for cheaper than $10.50/m with Telstra coverage and without the hassle of buying discounted recharges when they're on sale I will be sure to switch her over to it when her 12 months with Boost are up.

              And she's from the UK so she actually quite likes the unlimited international calls.

              @alexGoodwin: No, but data size isn't everything, and huge cities can have insane congestion.

            •  

              @alexGoodwin: Those tiny island nations don't count. There's a reason thry invest heavily in technology and that's why internet and data is cheap. But last time I heard the Korean government struggled to pass law for $500 dole payment for the unemployed, in a country with similar gdp per capita to oyrs

            @samfisher5986: btw he also told me internet is CN300 (<60) for 50Mb/s unlimited per year. YES per year + 100min free phone call per mth.

            What r we paying???

          •  

            @samfisher5986: In addition to good performance, we get very good coverage for what we pay as well. Relatively simple geography and blackspot funding help. We might not be a tiny island but compared to more mountainous countries we have it pretty easy.

        Don't give up. The average person is just stupid. But there is plenty of good people on the internet. Just a minority.

      Was thinking of buying another spare.
      But it occurred to me what would happen if they wrap up their operations. I’m paranoid seeing all these discounted boost mobile packs so frequently these few weeks. Is that a sign

  •  

    Hi, please advise.
    My prepaid credit still has 50Gb left and will be expired on April 2020.
    If I recharge it now, will my credit be increased to 110Gb and expiring date extends to Oct 2020?
    Thks

      The offer expires 28-Oct.

    perfect timing…

    Now what will I spend my extra $10 on ?????

  •  

    Why would u not get jb hifi telstra deal with 200 dollar gift card for 35 a month and 60gb

  •  

    Are you able to port out from boost to telstra for the JB Hi Fi deals?

  •  

    It says ends oct 28th? but how long till i can activate it?

  •  

    before when should I activate it?

    • -2 votes

      Activation is not really relevant, but you can only add this offer into your 'active' account up until 28-Oct.

      •  

        No. Offer ends Oct 28 means only before that date you can purchase with $90.
        But activation expiry date means you have the pack in your hand (60GB for 6 months) you need to activate before that date to enjoy it.

        I purchased a 12 months pack from boost mobile months ago and the activation expiry is definitely some time in 2021.

    While their deals and plans may be good for some (especially since Telstra Network), their porting/customer services are rather Slow and POOR
    as from many other online reviews.
    Hopefully won't need to deal directly with them too much.

    Just make sure when you port out from other networks, have some credits left and give them 4-7 days (still waiting after 4 days and have called them…)
    Otherwise can not make any calls or use data.

      their porting/customer services are rather Slow and POOR as from many other online reviews.

      They've had some issues recently. My first card six months ago took 2 hours to port. Last month, it took 5 days to port. Once it's done, it's done though…

    •  

      Porting also depends on the other provider releasing the number so its not always their fault

    •  

      their porting/customer services are rather Slow and POOR

      more likely related to the several $135 sales. before the sales started porting was a non-issue.

    •  

      I ported from Optus on saturday morning via boost website. It was all complete and working fine within the hour. Very happy.

    •  

      I ported on Friday night and done within an hour

    •  

      Porting still underway. Still can not recharge after calling them.
      Apparently problem's been ongoing for some numbers (whatever it means)

  •  

    Can I port into this deal from Telstra?

    •  

      Yes, but you can't do it on their website if you are coming from Telstra. You need to call Boost mobile to port.

    •  

      From the Boost FAQ:

      How to port my number from Telstra
      https://boost.com.au/blog/2017/10/30/bring-number-telstra/

      You’ll need a blank SIM to port from Telstra to Boost Mobile. Call our Customer Care team on 125 8881 (8am-9pm AEST, 7 days) and a blank SIM will be mailed to you. Ensure you have your personal details handy.

      If you’re in metro Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Canberra, Darwin, Hobart or Brisbane, you’ll receive it the next day (if your order is placed before 4pm).

      When your blank SIM arrives, contact Boost on 125 8881 (8am-9pm AEST, 7 days) to activate it.

      New customers can call: 1800 100 933

    Circles.Life is a pretty sweet alternative. They're doing a promo now with 4 months free with 20GB per month. After that it's $28/mth. That's if international calls isn't a big deal for you though, no minutes included in the plan

  •  

    Damn this is a good deal, if i didn't buy the 12 month deal I'd grab this.

  •  

    does anyone know what happens if I get this 6month plan, and if I need to recharge with another monthly plan, is the end date of the 6month plan still valid, or does it revert to the end date of the monthly plan instead?

    •  

      It will revert to the end date of the monthly plan - you are switching offers.

      I find Belong had the most flexiable $/GB option for my 13GB/month average use. Data banking and ability to drop down to $10/month gives a lot more flexibility than these fixed allowance offers.

      I also don't think you can add on more data to this boost offer.

  •  

    Great deal as usual TA !

  •  

    Is this deal for new customers only? And does it need to be activated by the end of the month?

  •  

    hows the reception (calls and data) compared to a normal Telstra service?

    •  

      No different. They use Telstra’s full (read: non wholesale) network.

      •  

        I would be grateful if you could explain the practical coverage difference between Telstra "full" network" and Telstra "non-wholesale" network..

        • +1 vote

          The difference is in coverage to non-metro areas. The "full" network covers 99.4% of the population and the wholesale network covers 98.8%

          If you're country enough to be affected then you probably already know the providers that give the best service in your area.

          In the past I've had Telstra while my wife was on a Telstra wholesale provider at the same time. The only time there was a noticeable difference was when we were in quite a rural area. Once.

          We're now both moving to Boost. This is a great deal.

    •  

      I'm not sure those long life plans get the same reception as the normal month to month boost plans. I've been with Boost for a while without an issue and have recently recharged a 6 month plan. On a camping trip last week I didn't have reception where friends with Telstra did. I've checked the mobile networks available and sure enough Telstra 3g was showing up, but I couldn't connect to it. I've confirmed that is the case as when I dialled to recharge (as a test) suddenly I got 3 bars and received messages and data connetion was back on for a while.

      I haven't had a chance to raise this with Boost yet, but if that is the case then as a rural customer that would be a deal breaker for me.

  •  

    Does having another mobile number already on boost prepaid count as an existing user?

    Or as long as i'm porting a new number, it counts as new customer?
