Australians with multiple mobile devices will soon enjoy data sharing plans from Telstra

Originally on

Over the weekend Telstra announced that they will soon be introducing data sharing plans for Australians. This will be targeted for those who have more than one mobile device – say a smartphone and a tablet – and want to experience data use on both devices without having to pay for an extra data plan. With the population moving to a multi-device mindset, it is reasonable for carriers to begin offering such plans.

I currently use a Telstra SIM for my phone and an Amaysim SIM for my tablet, but if these upcoming data sharing plans are offered at a reasonable price you may soon see me flying the Telstra flag. Time will tell how viable Telstra makes these plans but for now we can just hope they are on the cheaper side. More information will come out over the “next few months” but until then we’re only able to twiddle our thumbs.

    Vodafone have shared data plans too but they suck because they have a low data allowance and you have to use one of they tablets (Well, at lease sign a 24 Month contract for one)

    ye like tyler alluded to, aussie carriers (or any really) still havent caught on to the real data allowance that people need, nor the cost they are willing to pay, i wouldn’t expect these data sharing plans to be either data plentiful or cost effective

    Can’t understand. Does it mean mobile sharing or hotspot?

    Can’t we use it before?
