news Telstra has announced special deals for new NBN or broadband customers, offering extra data, bonus calls, and access to Wi-Fi when away from the home.
For a limited time, first-time home broadband customers who take up an eligible bundle for 24 months will be eligible for a number of bonus inclusions at no additional cost. The telco detailed the new bonuses yesterday in a post on its Exchange blog.
This will include twice the monthly data on ‘Medium’ or ‘Large’ Telstra bundles (an additional 200GB), or an extra 500GB on ‘X-Large’ Bundles for the full two-year period. The company notes that bonus data inclusion expires earlier if customers cancel early or move to an ineligible bundle.
The offer includes bonus unlimited national calls to standard fixed line numbers on Medium Bundles – excluding some calls, such as premium numbers (for example 19xx numbers), and 13, 1234 and 12456 numbers.
Also included is free Telstra Air Wi-Fi data until 30 June, providing the customer still has data in their home broadband allowance.
After 30 June, customers can use their double home broadband data to access Telstra Air hotspots (an eligible home broadband service and compatible modem are required).
Telstra is further offering three months free Platinum HD for new ‘Foxtel from Telstra’ customers in addition to the bundles, with no set-up costs, no cancellation fees and no contract.
This offer is only available to customers who have not had a Foxtel service within the last three months, it points out. Ongoing subscription charges will apply after the introductory three-month period unless the customer cancels earlier.
Telstra said its bundles are not available to all areas, homes or customers, and require a suitable TV. Further, additional fees will apply for professional and non-standard installation.
