news Telstra has launched what it is calling its “biggest and best value home bundle offer” that sees users get a hefty 1 terabyte of data, along with other features.
Available for customers signing up for 24 months, the bumped-up “Large” home bundle throws in a Telstra TV with the 1000GB of data – enough to stream standard-definition Netflix shows 24/7 for a month, with plenty of data to spare, according to the telco.
Telstra TV is the a streaming device that combines three streaming services – Presto, Stan and Netflix – plus five free-to-air catch-up apps and movie rentals through BigPond Movies.
Also included in the bundle are a six-month Presto Entertainment subscription, three months of FOX Sports Digital and $15 of BigPond Movies credit.
Customers will further receive a Telstra Air Wi-Fi compatible gateway modem and free Telstra Air access until 30 June, providing internet access at more than 300,000 hotspots across Australia and 18 million overseas.
The bundle comes with unlimited home phone calls to local, national, and Australian mobile numbers.
So what will all this cost? For customers signing up on a 24-month subscription before 30 May, the subscription fee will be $99 a month (a minimum total cost of $2,435, which includes an activation fee. An extra $12 delivery fee may apply).
It is worth noting that, once the 24-month period is up, the plan will revert to Telstra’s standard Large bundle costing $119 per month and coming with 500GB data.
Should a mere 1TB not be sufficient for your excessive streaming demands, Telstra is also offering an “Extra Large” 1,500GB package that will cost users $149 a month over 24 months (minimum total cost $3,635).
Additionally, for users who don’t watch TV 24/7, the “Medium” bundle is now offering a bumped-up 400GB (up from 200GB) for $89 a month (minimum total cost $2,195). For full conditions, see the Telstra website.
