March 27, 2012, 11:04 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Lebara Mobile, Australia's leading telecoms operator for migrant communities, has launched its new and improved Mega Plan service, providing unlimited standard calls and SMS in Australia as well as 1GB of mobile internet at no extra cost. As before, the Mega Plan continues to include an amount of call credit for low-cost international calls.
"We believe this new Mega Plan offers the best value package for customers who make both national and international calls, as well as those who access the internet from their phones." said Warren Hardy, managing director of Lebara Mobile in Australia. "With this offer Lebara Mobile is further bolstering its position as the number one provider of high quality, low cost mobile services for migrant communities in Australia."
The Mega Plan gives customers 30 days access to unlimited calls to any standard fixed line or mobile number in Australia*, calls to 13xx and 18xx numbers, calls to/from voicemail and standard 'free call' numbers. Now with the addition of 1GB of mobile internet included at no extra cost, customers can surf the web, send emails, social network and more from their Android, iPhone or any other data-ready handset. As before, customers will also get $10 included call credit to use for international calls or international SMS, video calls, MMS or any additional data over their included 1GB.
Two other versions of The Mega Plan are also available, and both include unlimited standard calls and SMS, 1GB data and an amount of included call credit. To top-up during their 30-day access, customers can choose between two Mega Recharge values which gives them additional included credit for their extra international call and data needs.
After 30 days, customers can renew their Mega Plan, and any unused call credit will roll over - a feature which most other unlimited packages exclude.
The latest Lebara Mega Plan can be purchased from all Lebara Mobile retail partners including Allphones, Australia Post, 7-Eleven, Coles & Coles Express, Woolworths Supermarkets & Petrol, Dick Smith and independent retailers, or see online for special offers at www.lebara.com.au.
