Compare Telstra Australian iPhone 8 plan pricing
Here's what you'll pay for the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus on the Telstra network.
Telstra offers the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus on 24 or 36-month repayment terms. You can then pair either phone with one of Telstra's month-to-month SIM-only plans, which include unlimited standard talk and text plus data caps ranging from 15GB up to 150GB.
Telstra's plans are typically more expensive than those of its competitors, but the carrier does bundle in a considerable number of extras, including data-free streaming of Apple Music, free access to the Telstra Air network and free mobile subscriptions to NRL, AFL and Netball Australia streams with all data usage included for those sports packages.
Telstra also runs a generous "Thanks" service with lower-cost movie tickets, early pre-sales for significant concert acts and discounted entry tickets for AFL, NRL and netball games.
The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are also available for outright sales through Apple's online Australian store.
