Telstra goes unlimited for its broadband bundles

Spend more than $99 per month on fixed-line broadband with Telstra to get unlimited data usage.

Telstra flagged at its investor day that it would launch unlimited data quota broadband bundles "in the coming weeks", and today it has taken the wraps off those plans, with any Telstra broadband plan costing $99 or more enjoying unlimited broadband quota during their contract period.

While Telstra's focus at its investor day was on NBN plans, the new inclusions apply to any Telstra customer on a fixed-line broadband technology, whether it's NBN, HFC Cable or ADSL2+, but not mobile broadband plans. As we've outlined previously, nobody's doing unlimited mobile broadband plans in Australia, and it's highly unlikely to happen in the near future either.

If you're a new Telstra broadband customer taking up a plan at that level, you'd also qualify for a bonus Foxtel Now subscription.

You would also qualify for a complimentary Telstra TV 2 set-top box. It's not just a play for attracting new subscribers, however, as the unlimited data deal also applies to existing customers at the $99 price point or above. If you're on a Telstra broadband plan under $99, you'll see at least a doubling of your data quota from its previous level.

Telstra is hardly alone in the unlimited broadband space, with many other ISPs offering unlimited broadband offerings. If you're pondering your new NBN options, our NBN tracker can assist you in finding the ideal plan for your home or office.
