Telstra’s Mobile Plans Are Getting A Price Increase

Going up.

It has now been confirmed that Telstra Upfront mobile plans are going up on July 4th. Telstra had previously announced that it would review its mobile plans in-line with CPI each year.

In recent times, Telstra changed the way its plans were structured, allowing themselves to change the plans, rather than locking the customer into a 12-month, 24-month or 36-month contract on a fixed monthly price. Users can leave their plan at any given time and only pay out their handset.

The new plans are increasing anywhere from $3-6 and a few of them also include more data.

Telstra has also announced that its mobile broadband plans are going up on July 4th.

In a blog post on Telstra’s website, Telstra group executive for consumer and small business Brad Whitcomb said:

“Increasing our prices means we can continue investing in the things that matter for our customers. Things like delivering around 1 million square kilometres more mobile coverage compared to our closest competitor and 24/7 network monitoring to help protect against scams and other malicious activity.

Like most businesses in Australia, we are also responding to increasing costs. These increased costs come at a time when the CPI data below shows overall telecommunications prices – which covers all telecommunications equipment and services, beyond just mobile price – have not increased for consumers anywhere near the rate of other goods and services in recent years.”
