Is the Telstra EOFY sale worth it?
It depends on what you're after. If you're looking to sign up to Australia's biggest telco, then sure, the NBN discount in this EOFY sale makes it more affordable.
But if you're looking for a new phone from Telstra, its EOFY deals this year aren't the strongest.
Telstra's own EOFY offer last year was better than this year's. It included savings on 5G premium handsets and tablets.
Vodafone was the first of the big 3 telcos to drop its EOFY offers and its deals are the best by far. It offers huge savings on premium handsets and double data on its $40 Lite plan.
While not part of the EOFY sale, you can also save $15 off of Vodafone's NBN plans if you already have a mobile phone plan with it.
If you'd like to stick with 1 brand then Vodafone's offer is substantial compared to Telstra.
It's never been more important to save. Compare the latest Internet plans and deals to find a better deal today.
