Telstra simplifies excess data charges
Telstra today announced that it will allow its post-paid customers to purchase 1GB data top-ups from the May 12. Dubbed Extra Data, the feature gives eligible customers the option to purchase additional 1GB blocks of data when they reach their monthly limit for a flat rate of AUD$10 per gigabyte.
Optus and Vodafone both also bill data used outside of a user's monthly quota at AUD$10 per gigabyte.
Extra Data will be made available to all existing Telstra customers on consumer smartphone, tablet or mobile broadband plans. Once it is available, customers will have the option to opt-in to the service.
