Telstra has doubled the data allowance for its overseas roaming, while also expanding coverage to 17 additional countries.
The telco’s International Day Pass will now have 200 MB of mobile data for $10 a day, or $5 a day in New Zealand.
Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Sri Lanka and Russia are among the 17 new countries with roaming coverage, upping the total number to 75 countries.
“Customers can opt-in to a day pass anytime before their trip as they will only be charged for the days they use their mobile and will have more data to use when accessing travel services like maps, translation and social apps,” Telstra head of consumer and small business mobiles Kevin Teoh said.
“Staying connected and keeping peace of mind about data usage is vital to enjoying [our customers’] holiday.”
Telstra launched the International Day Pass in July, which also includes free wi-fi through Telstra Air.
Telstra mobile and select broadband customers can access Telstra Air at 20 million hotspots overseas, operated by Telstra partner Fon Wireless.
