Should I go with Telstra?

This Galaxy S20 deal is definitely one of the cheapest ways you can get a 5G connection at the moment in Australia. Not many providers currently offer 5G, with Telstra, Optus and Vodafone being some of the very few, simply because they own and operate the networks. Telstra offers free 5G access to all Medium, Large and Extra Large postpaid plan users.

5G access aside, there’s plenty of reasons to sign up with Telstra. Telstra’s postpaid plans offer unlimited talk and text, and are month-to-month. Though this plan calls for a 12 or 24-month commitment, you could leave your postpaid plan anytime on a Telstra plan. Telstra’s postpaid prices start at $55 per month for 40GB data and go all the way up to $115 per month for 180GB. You won’t be charged excess data fees for going over your monthly data, and have use of additional unlimited slower data, just capped at 1.5Mbps speeds.

Every postpaid Telstra plan also comes with three months of standard BINGE video streaming access, and for a limited time, Medium, Large and Extra Large plan customers will get 50% extra Telstra Plus points to spend on Telstra’s rewards program, where you can pick up phones, accessories and more. Telstra additionally offers data-free sports streaming, data-free Apple music streaming, and free access to Telstra Air Wi-Fi.
