Telstra always used to be more expensive than the other telcos, but a better network. Then their prices became reasonable, and I switched to Telstra prepaid. But a lot of people did, and now their service is no different than any of the other telcos. Additionally, they send users’ requests overseas for blacklist checking, a “service” I didn’t subscribe to.
And now their prepaid offer goes backwards. Where I had 2GB for $50, from next month onwards I’ll only get 800MB…
