Compare Google Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro plans and deals in Australia

Google’s latest Pixel series features some impressive specs, but carries the big price tags to match. If you’re looking at picking up your Pixel 8 or Pixel 8 Pro, you’ll have your choice of the big three telcos, with the option to split the payment over 12, 24 or 36 months.

So, if you want to know what Pixel 8 plans and Pixel 8 Pro plans are available from Telstra, Optus and Vodafone, read on for the best plans and deals.

Vodafone Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro phone plans

Vodafone offers both the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro across all storage sizes and colour options, with devices available to purchase on a 12, 24 or 36-month payment period. Once you’ve selected your device of choice, simply bundle with a Vodafone postpaid phone plan.

You’ll get 5G network access on all of Vodafone’s postpaid plans, along with no excess data charges, which means once you use up your fast data allowance, you can keep using data but at the capped speed of 2Mbps.

If you choose to pick up your Pixel phone on a plan from Vodafone, you’ll get some added extras.
