JB Hi-Fi has dropped a new SIM-only plan and we're extremely here for it.
Big Data. Good price. Telstra coverage. Bonus gift card.
To be fair, JB actually has two new plans. The sexier one is a 50GB plan for $45 per month on a 12-month contract, with a $200 gift card. If you're after Telstra coverage, this is one of the best bang for buck deals around right now. For comparison, Big T charges $50 for 15GB SIM-only plan, but it is contract free.
You can take a closer look at the deal here:
Your other option is a $65 plan with 60GB with a $300 gift card.
Telstra itself offers 60GB for $60 per month on a no-contract basis, so the JB plan isn't quite as good, especially given you have to commit to a year. However, you do still win out if you take the gift card into consideration.
Even though you're paying $5 per month than on Telstra itself, that only takes $60 away from the value of the gift card. Not bad if you want to bag a bunch of two-for-one Blu-Rays.
JB Hi-Fi is powered by the full Telstra network, as opposed to the wholesale network used by Telstra MVNOs, other than Boost). These plans also have the same benefits you'd get with a standard Telstra plan, including Telstra Air access, $10 per day roaming, and data-free Apple Music.
Neither JB plan has any international talk and text, though.
It's also worth noting that these deals are available for a limited time only and they are only available to customers who don't already have a service on the Telstra network.
