Ok, so Australians still don't have access to unlimited 5G plans that are also unlimited in speed, with Telstra slowing you down to 1.5Mbps once your data cap has expired, and Vodafone slowing you to either 2Mbps, 10Mbps or 25Mbps once your bundled data has expired.
But for those wanting hundreds of gigabytes without a $100+ price point, on what is Australia's largest 5G network, well, Telstra is making it easy for you to finally have this, with 400GB of data for $85 per month on its Large L plan.
Now, it has to be said that Telstra offered "hundreds of gigabytes" for less than $100 before, but it was only 200GB for $75. Now, for $10 per month more, you get double that amount of data, and for some people, this will be enough!
Of course, it does depend on what it is you're doing. If you're hammering torrents, preferably of the legal kind, you don't want this plan, because uploads are likely to count against your download limit as has been the case with mobile plans for years.
You'll want a wired connection if you intend downloading large amounts of data.
The same goes for endless bingeing of streaming video services - you can certainly stream a LOT of Netflix, Stan, Amazon Prime, YouTube and more, but the more you watch, the more you'll have to check your download limit to see how much data is left, lest you be shaped to 1.5Mbps speeds.
5G is more than enough speed to download 4K streams as well, so if you are on this plan, you might want to make sure your streaming video apps and sites are set to avoid the very highest quality, otherwise you can chew through 400GB pretty fast in a family situation with lots of people using the Internet at the same time.
Naturally, there will be those who want to see a doubling or tripling of this new 400GB download limit, but we've got a few more years of the 2020s to go, with mmWave 5G and more to come, let alone all of that satellite bandwidth on the way from Starlink and other players.
So, all of your wireless dreams are sure to come true later this decade, and for many people, even something as simple and affordable at Felix Mobile's $35 per month for unlimited calls and texts in Australia with endless 4G data speed capped at 20Mbps will do the job for really affordable 4G data, with Vodafone's $65 per month plan with 500GB of data and 25Mbps capped speeds thereafter.
But if it's the width, breadth, strength and speed of Telstra's network that you require, only Telstra can deliver it at the moment, so for more info, click here.
