Telstra lifts prices, axes Freedom Connect brand

Telstra has made significant changes to its mobile phone plans, increasing prices and replacing its Freedom Connect brand with Every Day Connect.

Pricing now starts at $60 per month on a 12 month contract with 1GB data, compared to the previous entry-level plan of $49 per month, also with 1GB of data.

The same Every Day Connect plan is also offered on a BYO phone contract for $50 per month.

In addition, Telstra bumped its monthly charges up by $1 across the board, with some tweaks to call and data allowances.

For example, the former $59 Freedom Connect plan previously came with $550 of calls and texts, plus 1.5GB data.

The $60 Every Day Connect replacement plan includes an extra $50 of calls and texts for a total of $600, but only 1GB of data. 

The $80 Every Day Connect plan and above also come with Telstra's Unlimited Nights promotion - free talk time between 7pm-7am every night.
