    JB just offered 80GB Telstra for $69/Mo with $500 voucher the other day (which you will easily sell for $400 cash worst case, probably more like $450).

    That includes more data, and 5G access for an effective cost of $36 a month worst case or as low as $31.50 if you get a full $450 for it. Also the website is a bit confusing but what happens after data is used up? Is data stopped all together or is excess data just slowed?

    Sure it’s a lock in contract, but it’s still cheaper in the long run by 20% give or take.

    The only benefit I can see from this is international calling inclusions.

      If you exceed your monthly included mobile data, and any data remaining in your data bank, your data will be capped and no more mobile data will be available until you roll over into the next billing month.

      If you wish to add any excess data once your value has been exceeded, there is the option available to add a 1GB bolt-on for $10.

        Ok well in that case, it seems going JB is better which gives:

        5G
        No excess data charges
        Cheaper if you sell the voucher and also possible to potentially score an additional $10 per month through chat.

        Unless you:
        1. Want a no lock in contract
        2. Need international calling which costs extra with Telstra.

      If you don't want to necessarily switch plans after 12 months the telstra deal gets more expensive though. Assuming you get $450 back off the gift card it's about $50 a month if you stay on it for 2 years.

      I think there's good reasons to go with either. The pull for me is no lock in contract, less effort cause I don't need to sell a gift card or find something to buy in store, 5g isn't important to me as my area isn't covered, also the included music streaming subscription will save me money.

    not so good Mate.

  •  

    Received an SMS from Mate telling me the additional monthly data allowance will be applicable to me, an already existing customer, so that's great without even asking them. I've also been connected to their 250/50 NBN plan and I can't complain, no dropouts in the 2 months I've been with them. I used to average 220Mbps download in peak hours but noticed last week that it's upped to 250Mbps even at peak evening hours. I used to be an ISP slut but given the good experience with Mate, I might stay with them unless a real killer deal comes by.

    Keen to switch over if no excess data charges (just capped slow speed when data allowance used up like Telstra) until then No mate

      There are no automatic extra charges - if you exceed your monthly data and any amount in your data bank, your data will be capped and no more mobile data will be available until you roll over into the next billing month.

      If you wish to add any excess data once your value has been exceeded, there is the option available to add a 1GB bolt-on for $10, however, you do so manually if you choose - this is not automatic.

    Is data pooling/sharing available? Might work out for the wifey and my iPad that way…

    •  

      Data pooling/sharing isn't available at this stage.

  •  

    No VoLTE. um.. internet will go down during phone calls.

    •  

      The internet will not go down, it will just revert to the 3G network while on a call.
