The best iPhone 8 plans

Best budget option and overall value – iPhone 8 64GB | 30GB data | Music streaming | $89 pm

This is comfortably the best deal going on the iPhone 8 right now and, what's even better, it's one of the cheapest available. You can save $9 a month if you wish, but instead of 30GB of data you'll only be getting 3GB, so we'd recommend going the little extra. Total cost over 24 months is $2,136

Best iPhone 8 plan for each carrier

Best Telstra plan – iPhone 8 64GB | 30GB data | Unlimited international calls and texts | $109 pm

The 30GB data plan is the lowest you can go while still scoring yourself a 24-month Foxtel Now starter pack subscription and unlimited international calls and texts. You can also pay an extra $10pm to get Telstra's new Peace of Mind data offering, meaning that when you go over your 30GB cap, your download speed will be slowed to 1.5Mbps but you won't be charged for any excess usage. Total cost over 24 months is $2,616
