Why we like it

Boost Mobile's 20GB plan has a whole lot going for it. Along with full Telstra network coverage, it includes a hefty 20GB of data plus unlimited international calls to 20 countries. Any unused data automatically rolls over to the next month, too, giving you an extra buffer should you need it.
