Mobile broadband - warning

Be warned. If you use Telstra Prepaid Broadband wifi and you are given a tempting offer for a new package - use up your credit before you switch!

$180/12GB=$15/GB old package
$150/40G=$3.75/GB new package
We were on the old package and had $146 credit remaining when we accepted telstra’s offer to change to the new, and plainly better, package. What Telstra neglected to tell us was that the remaining credit would be used up at $2/MB=$2000/GB!

After more than an hour on the phone with Telstra they reinstated 10GB of data.


Thanks for the warning… Beware the fine print.
