Telstra plan prices and features
Telstra’s postpaid plans begin at $55 per month for 40GB of data, with 80GB, 120GB, and extra-large 180GB options available. All plans include unlimited standard national talk and text in Australia, plus no excess data charges for domestic use. If you exceed your included high-speed data allowance, then you’ll have access to unlimited data capped at speeds of 1.5Mbps, suitable for standard definition streaming and general web and social media use.
All plans are contract-free, so you’re able to switch between them without impacting your phone repayments. But if you do want to cancel your Telstra service completely, you’ll need to pay out any remaining balance on your Samsung Galaxy S20 FE.
Plans also include three months of free BINGE streaming, plus data-free sport and data-free Apple Music (subscription required). Customers can also pocket up to 10,000 bonus Telstra Plus rewards points when buying a 5G device on a Telstra plan.
Access to Telstra’s new 5G network is also included free on Medium, Large and Extra Large plans, but isn’t available on the Small option. If you want to make the most of the S20 FE’s 5G capability – and you’re in an area with Telstra 5G coverage – you may prefer to skip the Small plan, and instead sign up to a Medium or higher option.
