Telstra Introduces New CDMA EV-DO Plans
Posted on 4-Apr-2006 09:42. | Tags Filed under: News.



Telstra's ISP BigPond have announced new plans with lower prices and wider coverage for the BigPond Wireless Broadband mobile card service, which is based on their CDMA EV-DO network. The new plans are available from 5 April 2006.

The operator have previously announced its plans to phase out the CDMA network across Australia, with this infrastructure being replaced with a new network based on the competing UMTS 850 standard. Customers will be moved to the new network in due time, but the company continues to support current CDMA users.

The new BigPond Wireless Broadband Mobile Card plans start with 10 hours access for AU$29.95 per month, with previous monthly plans now AU$20 per month cheaper.

A variety of plans is available, with combinations of different download and upload speeds. An hourly plan is available with options of 10 and 20 hours/month and speeds of 512/64 Kbps (download/upload). Plans based on traffic are also available with the 256/64/200MB (download/upload/traffic) costing AU$49.95 and the 512/64/1GB plan costing AU$109.95.

Excess usage on time based plans is 80c for 5 minutes and excess usage on usage plans is 30c MB. The BigPond Wireless Broadband Mobile Card has a suggested price of AU$299.

In addition, eligible customers who sign up for BigPond's current broadband promotion can get up to 12 months half-priced access, and $129 off the price of the BigPond Wireless Broadband Mobile card.
