Telstra will finally offer unlimited NBN data bundles
Telstra broadband bundle plans under $99 will get double the data soon as well.
Telstra has been notable as one of the longest holdouts still keeping low data limits on a number of its broadband plans while competitors have rushed to offer "unlimited" NBN plans, typically on low speed tiers.
Speaking at its Investor Day presentation today, Telstra CEO Andy Penn indicated that the company plans to release new NBN broadband plans with unlimited data inclusions "in the coming weeks", according to a report on ZDNet.
Currently, Telstra's NBN plans top out with quotas at 3000GB per month for $130 per month, with quotas then dropping down to as low as 100GB per month for $70 per month on a 24-month contract. According to Penn, unlimited data plans will be available for new and existing customers contracting for terms greater than $99 per month.
If you're an existing customer on a lower value plan, you won't get unlimited data, but your data quota will be doubled when the new plans come into effect.
Telstra is positioning itself more aggressively in the broadband space with the recent announcement of the new Telstra TV 2, which will be bundled with new broadband plan contracts costing $99 or more as well.
