The best Telstra mobile plans for June 2019


If you're on the hunt for a Telstra plan, you're probably already familiar with the carrier's strengths and weaknesses. 

Impressive coverage can be worth the somewhat steeper price of entry on a Telstra contract, particularly if you're living in more remote regions, and premium inclusions such as Foxtel Now starter packs and Apple Music subscriptions definitely sweeten the deal alongside your brand new phone.

We've scanned through all the plans, promos and specials that Telstra has to offer and picked out three of its best to suit different kinds of customers. Whether you're after the most affordable budget option, a spectacularly well-balanced plan or one with loads of data, we're here to help.

Editor's choice and best overall value

iPhone XR 64GB | 50GB data | Unlimited international talk & text | $109 pm

If you're going to go with Telstra, then the telco's iPhone offerings are usually the most compelling, and there's no better value right now than with the iPhone XR. On top of the unlimited international talk and text, 50GB of data and no excess data charges after you reach your cap (speeds will slow instead), you'll also be able to stream a whole host of sporting events data-free. Total cost over 24 months is $2,616

Best budget option

Google Pixel 2 XL 64GB | 15GB data | $49 pm

You might not be getting the latest Google flagship here, but the Pixel 3 Xl arguably changed very little from its predecessor, and the Pixel 2 XL still holds up. It's even more enticing when you factor in this incredibly low price for a Telstra plan, let alone the 15GB of data. But hurry as stock is limited. Total cost over 24 months is $1,176

Best big data plan

iPhone XS Max 512GB | Unlimited data | Unlimited international talk and text | 10GB roaming data | $199 pm

This is where Telstra truly shines – its unlimited data plan is a flat $199 per month no matter which handset you choose, so you may as well choose the most expensive handset available, right? You'll be getting the iPhone XS Max 512GB model, truly unlimited data, unlimited international talk and text, and 10GB of roaming data. Wowser. Total cost over 24 months is $4,776
