Telstra debuts data sharing plans in Australia

Data sharing plans now available, start at $20 per month on top of a plan

Telstra has announced the launch of data sharing plans in Australia, enabling consumers to share data across multiple devices.

The Telstra Every Day Connect Data Share Packages are available from today but will cost a minimum of $20 per month on top of regular plans.

A $10 monthly fee is required to enable the service, and a further $10 fee per shared SIM-card is charged for each additional device.

The data sharing plans allow up to four devices to connect with a single account, one mobile phone and up to three additional data-only products.

"With people more connected than ever before, customers are looking for a simple solution that will allow them to manage their usage across all their devices and make their data allowance go further," said Telstra's group managing director for consumer, Karsten Wildberger.

"Telstra’s Every Day Connect Data Share Packages will help fill that gap and allow customers to share their monthly mobile data allowance between their mobile and multiple data devices - including tablets and laptops - all under one package."

The data sharing packages can be added to any new or existing Telstra Everyday Connect plan.

The plans start from $50 per month if you bring your own phone, or from $60 per month if you choose a new phone from Telstra.

Telstra's smallest plan offers 1GB of data per month, while the top $140 plan ($100 BYO), offers 3GB of data per month.

The data sharing plans are primarily targeted at tablet users, but can also be used in Wi-Fi hotspot devices, or any other data-only products that require a SIM-card.

As part of an exclusive launch offer, Telstra says customers who sign up for an Every Day Connect Data Share Package before Tuesday, 31 December 2013 will receive a bonus 1GB of data per month for the first 12 months of their plan.
