Telstra just increased the data for each recharge amounts some by up to x3.


Also they have now introduced expensive recharges that now have 90 & 180
day periods rather than the standard 30 days.

They are still expensive but now less so.

Next they need to change the international roaming so you can you standard
recharges at a higher rate rather than  special overseas only  recharges.
