Telstra has cut prices and simplified its business broadband plans in a bid to offer better value to SMBs.
All connections are now high-speed ADSL where available, excess data charges have been halved and capped at $400 per month. Prices are further reduced for customers who also have eligible voice services with Telstra.
Telstra Business executive director, Brian Harcourt, said the business broadband market was highly competitive, with latest Sensis e-Business Survey showing broadband was an integral part of an SMB’s infrastructure.
“Nine out of ten Australian small businesses now regard broadband as an integral part of their day-to-day business, to communicate with customers and suppliers and for buying and selling online,” Harcourt said in a statement.
“These new plans give all customers the fastest possible connection while reducing the possibility of bill shock by halving and capping excess data charges and rewarding customers who also have a fixed service with Telstra Business.”
Some features of the new plans include two new additional options providing cheaper or higher download limits. But the unlimited option remains unchanged and customers with other eligible Telstra Business fixed-line or voice service contracts receive price cuts up to $30 per month. Excess data charges have also been halved to $0.04 per MB, or $0.03 per MB on plans bundled with an eligible voice service, and capped at $400 a month.
