Sim Only Mobile Review – Telstra Sim Only Plans (March 2014)

The Telstra Sim Only Plans are really quite expensive when you compare them to Telstra prepaid. For $40 the Prepaid Cap Encore offers $550 credit plus 600MB plus unlimited calls and TXT each evening. Excess data is higher at PAYG $2/MB but what you can also do with your credit is use it to buy more data packets rather than use it for calls. The Telstra Sim Only Plans start at $55 and offer $550 in credit, unlimited TXT and 500MB. This is less value that the $40 prepaid option.

Whilst these plans give you access to 4G, they are well over priced for the value on offer. Better alternatives exist using the 3G Telstra reseller network or alternatives such as Optus and Vodafone who also offer access to their 4G networks.
