What are the best phone plans on the Telstra network?

Advertisement

Did you know there is more to the mobile phone plan world than just the ‘Big Three’ – Telstra, Vodafone and Optus? There are, in fact, more than 30 mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs) that piggyback off these three networks. The end result is that you have a lot more choice and the ability to bag a bargain if you shop around.

As the largest network in Australia, it’s little wonder a lot of MVNOs want to get on board the Telstra train. The telco giant has the most expansive network in the country and given its great reception in many rural areas, it’s a claim that seems to hold true. Despite some high-profile outages in recent times, Telstra serves several million Aussie customers. However, there are several third-party providers which also utilise Telstra’s network services to provide their own mobile phone plans – and in many cases, provide similar or superior value. Most are SIM-only and operate online, but offer convenience and great prices.

If you’ve been thinking of switching services, but love the Telstra coverage, then you might want to consider other providers that use the Telstra network. Read on for our list of providers using Telstra’s nationwide networks, or jump straight into our SIM-only comparison tool below to find a great deal.

Mobile Phone Plans on the Telstra Network

There are a handful of operators on the Telstra network, with both prepaid and postpaid bases covered. If you’re having trouble deciphering whether prepaid or postpaid is the way to go, then this article may help. Here are 10 MVNOs that use the Telstra network:

Boost Mobile

A prepaid service provider that, historically, has marketed to a younger demographic, Boost Mobile has ‘matured’ a little since the early 2000s, growing into a great-value telco across the board. It ceased using the Optus network in 2013, and jumped ship to Telstra. Currently, Boost is the only MVNO to make full use of the Telstra network – others only use parts of it.

Boost Mobile offers a range of prepaid plans running across different expiry periods, with the main offerings running on 28-day expiry periods. Boost packs a lot of value into the plans with generous data and all plans include unlimited international calls and SMS to select countries, plus data-free streaming of Apple Music. All in all, you get get some fantastic value for money and all with full access to the Telstra network. The below table includes all of Boost’s 28-day plans with sponsored links.

TeleChoice

A small service provider that offers both SIM-only and handset phone plans, TeleChoice differs from its competitors in a number of ways. Unlike most MVNOs, TeleChoice maintains brick-and-mortar stores nationwide and offers its postpaid plans on various plan periods, including month-to-month plans, 12 month and 24-month plans. Another way TeleChoice stands out is its Prepay plans, not to be confused with prepaid plans. Essentially you prepay the minimum monthly charge upfront for several months access to your ‘postpaid’ plan —either seven or 13 months of service— and if you go over your inclusions, you pay the excess on a post-paid basis.

TeleChoice offers four different postpaid plans across all of the plan periods, with prices for the month-to-month plans starting at $18 up to $48 per month. If you sign up to a 12 or 24-month plan, you can expect a lower monthly fee and you can save even more on the prepay plans. If you’re looking at a new handset, TeleChoice will give you four different plan and phone bundle choices. The below table features the 12-month plans, which includes sponsored links.

If you want Telstra coverage, you’ll need to select from the ‘Orange’ plans, which are only available as month-to-month postpaid plans and start at $15 per month for unlimited talk and text and 1GB of data per month.

As a direct Telstra subsidiary, Belong offers a dead-simple approach to its postpaid plans, offering three plans: Small, Regular and Large. Starting at $10 and going up to $40 over a one-month period, all plans feature unlimited national calls and texts and if you need international call inclusions, you can add an international calling pack to select countries for an additional $5 on the Small and Regular plans. The Large plan already includes unlimited standard international calls and text to select countries.

The big plus for Belong users is access to unlimited data banking.

As another grocery giant in the mobile phone market, Woolworths Mobile offers four plans priced at $20, $30, $40 and $50, which are available as prepaid plans across 30 days.

Data banking is one of the biggest draws to Woolworths Mobile, with up to 100GB of data banking available, but you’ll need to recharge before your expiry in order to keep your data bank active.

Think Mobile

If you’re thinking of getting a new phone plan, Think Mobile is an interesting proposition. It’s based on the Gold Coast in Queensland, and is yet another dual-carrier postpaid MVNO (the other network used being Vodafone), with plans on the Telstra network starting at $15 per month, but not including data.

Think’s ‘Classic’ Telstra network plans all offer 4G coverage, but the data amounts aren’t huge; the maximum included data is 2GB on the $35 plan. Think Mobile’s Vodafone network plans are a little more competitive, so if you’re not set on a network, you may prefer the ‘Ultimate’ Think Mobile plan options.

Telstra (prepaid)

This list wouldn’t be complete without Telstra itself. The telco giant has a pretty big selection of prepaid plans with expiry periods starting at 7 days and going up to 365 days. Most customers will opt for the Pre-Paid Max deals, which start at $10 per recharge over a 7-day expiry for unlimited talk and text, plus a rollover data bank of up to 200GB. Plans also include unlimited standard international calls to 20 countries.

Prepaid Telstra plans also include some of the perks you’ll find on postpaid options. Customers will enjoy unlimited live streaming of AFL, netball, A-League and NRL games, plus data-free Apple Music. Plans also come with free and unlimited Telstra Air data, which lets you use WiFi instead of data across a wide range of locations in Australia.

Telstra (postpaid)

Telstra offers three main SIM-only plans, all of which are available on 12-month contracts. These start at $49 per month for 15GB of data (although you can score bonus gigabytes by signing up at the right time). Large and Extra Large plans both include unlimited international talk and text to 15 countries, while the Extra Large is the only plan to include international roaming inclusions.

Telstra may seem expensive, but it is of course the only provider here to offer unbridled access to its own network – others only receive parts of it, or in Boost’s case, do not receive the full 4GX LTE speed range. Telstra also sweetens the deal with things like NRL & AFL game passes, Apple Music memberships and many other deals, so there is extra value that could make these plans more appealing to you.
