Telstra has significantly raised the data quotas on its prepaid phone plans with high-end products now carrying a 4GB monthly allowance.
The telco revealed today a series of revisions to its Cap+ and Weekend+ prepaid plans.
While there were increases in the amount of calls that could be made under the revised plans, it was the data quotas that would be of particular interest to smartphone users.
Whereas the old plans topped out at 1GB of allowance, the new plans boasted up to 4GB a month.
The entry-level Cap+ recharge ($30) went from 150MB to 400MB of data a month while the $40 recharge increased from 300 MB to 800 MB.
For customers willing to recharge higher amounts, the $60 recharge went from 600 MB to 3GB while the $100 recharge went from 1GB to 4GB.
On the Weekend+ prepaid products, the increases were even more marked: $50 recharge (100MB to 2GB), $80 (500MB to 3GB) and $100 (1GB to 4GB).
Telstra also said it would launch an Android smartphone this month that cost less than $100, firmly targeting prepaid users.
