If Telstra is your telco of choice, and you're looking for a new plan, we've got you covered. While "best" definitely isn't a one size fits all kind of phrase, we've tried to pick out a couple of deals that offer great value.

This month, we've taken a look at some of the best deals for phones on a contract, bang-for-buck BYO, and a top-notch prepaid deal.

If you'd prefer to find yourself a deal, check out the rest of Telstra's plans, here.

Best phones on a contract


Telstra mobile plans are now packed with better-value international and entertainment inclusions. There are currently awesome deals running on 24-month phone plans. For $99 per month, the Large Plan includes unlimited national talk & text, 20GB data (includes 8GB bonus), unlimited international talk & text to 15 selected destinations, as well as 12 month subscription on Foxtel Now with 1 Starter Pack. 

You can get the new Google Pixel 2 64GB (exclusive to Telstra) on the $99 Plan for $107/mth over 24 months contract.
