Prepaid – updated comparison chart

Data sessions

I’ve had heaps of requests to check a few other networks, so please find below the updated chart.

Since the last report [see State of play] I’ve moved to Vodafone, and my wife to Telstra. I can report that the data sessions are indeed correctly advertised “As you go 1kb/session”. I now have my data back on check and all is well in the pre-paid world…. for now.

If you have any stories, please send them through, or leave a comment. Thankyou
