It appears the best things come in small packages: new plans could include unlimited SMS and upped call and data credit.
According to rumours today, the telco is set to unveil new post pay packages, called Freedom Connect. It could also be likely these plans are for 12 rather than 24 month period, although this is not yet certain.
The new plans, which are said to be from an internal source, could be launched on March 29, are to come in packages ranging from $49 to $129.
The basic $49 will include $450 of calls and text and 1GB of data downloads, representing an increased $50 of call on its current 24 month package at that price.
The $59 and greater packages all all set to offer free unlimited SMS and over $500 in calls. This is the telco’s latest bid to win over more mobile customers on to its next G network.
Last year it added 919,000 new mobile customers to its base, including 297,000 additional postpaid handheld customers, which represents some of its strongest growth in the past ten years and is clearly looking to keep momentum up in the face of intense competition from th likes of Optus and Vodafone.
It also sold 800k iPhone and Android devices in the last financial year, it recently said.
These price plans are likely to be confirmed within the coming days.
