When Virgin and Optus announced that they would be selling the 4G version of the popular Samsung Galaxy S3, Telstra was biding its time before discussing its own plans for availability.

Telstra has now announced the plans and pricing for it, for both consumer and business customers.

Consumers can get the handset starting on the $60 Every Day Connect Plan, with a $6 handset repayment per month for a minimum cost over 24 months of $1,584. The plan comes with $600 worth of standard national calls and MMS, plus unlimited text messaging to standard Australian numbers and 1GB of data for use in Australia.

For business customers, the phone plans begin with the $60 Business Performance Plan, with a $6 handset repayment per month for, again, a $1,584 minimum cost over two years. The same call and data allowances as the Every Day Connect Plan apply.

The plans increase in pricing and data allowance, topping out at a 3GB data cap.

Telstra currently offers 4G in 100 metropolitan areas across Australia, and is expected have coverage in all capital cities within the next 10 months.
