Boost Mobile dips into double data for its prepaid plans
Get twice as much data, but only for your first two recharges.
Ever since telcos started offering unlimited standard national calls and texts even on low-cost prepaid plans, the comparative difference has shifted towards data. Boost Mobile's latest offer to entice new customers is to offer double the standard data amounts on recharges above $30 for the first two recharges only. Plans at or above $30 can also roll over unused data if you recharge within the expiry period, although that's only for a further 28 day expiry period.
Boost Mobile is also opening up its recharge levels, with new plans at $40 and $50 with 8GB of data and 12GB of data respectively. With the double data offer, that means that you could score 24GB of data per month for $50 for two months, along with unlimited standard national calls and texts. After that two month period you'd be looking at a 12GB plan. The double data deal will run from today through to 6 February 2018.
Boost Mobile has also introduced a new $15 add-on component for international callers, with unlimited calls to standard numbers in Canada, China, Germany, Ireland, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Africa, UK and USA. The $15 add-on credit can also be used for calls to countries outside that group, with 28-day expiry, but as it's a bolt-on, you've got to have an active recharge of some other type to add it to.
Here's how Boost Mobile's plans now compare:
