It’s free data day for Telstra customers today – a way for the company to say sorry for the inconvenience of yet another network outage – so you can get downloading and streaming as much as you want.
So how can you take advantage of this rare day of free data on the Telstra network today.
Here’s a few things we suggest:
DO ALL YOUR APP UPDATES
Most people wait till their home on wi-fi to run all of their app updates. Today you can make those updates anywhere.
If you’ve got a library of movies on iTunes, for example, you can download that film to any of your devices without having to pay for it again.
So today would be a great time to download the 5GB file of Star Wars The Force Awakens onto your iPhone.
MAKE FACETIME AND SKYPE CALLS
Usually we wait till we’re home on wi-fi to make our video calls but today, with the free data data, you can make them from anywhere. So choose somewhere nice and provide a nice backdrop for your call.
USE YOUR PHONE AS A HOTSPOT
Your Telstra smartphone can be tethered to your laptop as a personal hotspot so you can use it to access the internet or to download content.
So don’t feel limited to your smartphone.
Take advantage of your free connection on your smartphone and connect with your computer to stream or download those movies, TV shows and music anywhere.
BACK UP YOUR STUFF TO THE CLOUD
Your data is calculated not only when you download – but when you upload too – so why not upload your photo library and other files to the cloud and create a backup?
BINGE A TV SHOW
You’d be able to watch an entire series today so head to Netflix, Stan or Presto on your device and go for it!
