If you already own a handset and want to get access to Telstra's 4GX network then you should check out Telstra Casual plans.

Telstra's Casual plans allow you to take advantage of their widespread coverage without committing to a 24-month contract. Use the selector below to find out more about each SIM plan.

  • 4GX Capability. Telstra's casual plans offer full access to Telstra's full 4GX network, presuming you're using a device that's up to the task.
  • Freedom to switch. The beauty of a monthly plan is that if you do want to switch to a different Telstra plan you're free to do so, or indeed to another provider. Meanwhile, you get slightly better rates than on prepaid plans.
  • Footy coverage included. As with Telstra's full contract plans, Telstra's Go Mobile casual plans come with your choice of an AFL Live Pass or NRL Digital Pass.
  • Telstra AIR access. Telstra runs its own nationwide Wi-Fi network, and access to its services is included with Go Mobile Casual plans. Until mid-2016 it's entirely free, and after that you get 10GB of usage per month.
  • Regional coverage. Telstra is often your best -- and sometimes only -- choice if you live or work regionally, but that also means it's a solid choice if you travel through regional areas as well.


  • Not quite as good as contract plans. The value proposition for casual SIM plans is slightly more generous than prepaid, but still less generous than if you opt for a full 12 or 24 month contract.
  • Can cost more than you think. Because these are postpaid plans, if you do use a lot of data, calls or texts you can end up paying more, unlike the full cap of a prepaid plan.
  • Calls not unlimited. Many competing telcos offer unlimited calls at every postpaid price tier, but Telstra only gives you that at the top of the casual pricing tier.

Who this plan would suit

If you're happy with the device you've already got but want a little more data than on prepaid with the flexibility to shift whenever you feel like it, Telstra's casual SIM only plans could be a good fit.
