Sim Only Mobile Review – Telstra Sim Only Plans (January 2015)

The Telstra Sim Only Plans are really quite expensive when you compare them to Telstra prepaid. For $40 the Telstra Prepaid Freedom plan offers $550 credit plus 1.5GB plus unlimited calls and TXT each evening. Excess data is however higher at PAYG $2/MB. 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. Telstra has recently added a bonus of either $500 in calls for this offer or 500MB (no strings attached).

The Telstra Sim Only Plans begin at $55 and increase to $130. The $130 plan offers Unlimited Calls/TXT and 4GB (includes 1GB bonus data) of 4G speed data. Comparing these plans again to the prepaid range, for $50 the Freedom prepaid plan gives you $1000 in calls and 2GB data. Unlimited calls/TXT in the evenings still apply.

The Medium plan is probably the best value plan with $700 in call value (294, 2  in calls) and 2.5GB (includes 1GB bonus data) of 4G speed data. The cost of this plan is $70/mth. Optus Sim Only range peaks at $60 with unlimited calls/TXT and 5GB of Optus 4G speed data. There is quite a difference in value between these plans.
