Boost rejigs prepaid plans for more data
Boost Mobile has refreshed its range of prepaid plans with higher data allowances, more consistent weekend bonuses, and shorter expiry times.
Boost's new entry level plan now costs AUD$25 per recharge (up from AUD$20). This includes 1.5GB of data, unlimited text, and 100 minutes of talk. Boost's AUD$40 recharge now includes 5GB of data, in addition to unlimited talk and text, and unlimited international calls to select countries. Boost has also introduced a new AUD$50 plan, with the same inclusions as the AUD$40 plan, but 7GB of data.
All three plans have 28 day expiries (which is quickly becoming the new industry standard for prepaid, effectively meaning customers have to recharge 13 times a year, rather than 12). Additionally, Boost customers receive 1GB of bonus data every weekend, typically resulting in an extra 4GB across a month. Bonus weekend data doesn't rollover; as such, customers lose any unused "bonus data" at the end of a weekend.
Boost Mobile's new plans are available from today. Existing customers can choose to move across to an updated offer or stick on their current plan.
