The Google Nexus 5 is finally coming to Australia, with Telstra first off the rank to announce that it will be carrying the phone, available in Telstra stores from 26 November.

The 4G Nexus 5 — which is available through Google Play for AU$399 for the 16GB model and AU$449 for the 32GB model — will be available through Telstra on one of four plans.

  • The small plan is a minimum of AU$69 per month for 24 months and comes with AU$600 of talk and MMS, unlimited text and 1GB of data. Minimum cost over 24 months is AU$1656.

  • The medium plan is a minimum of AU$80 per month for 24 months and comes with AU$800 of talk and MMS, unlimited text, 1.5GB of data plus free talk every night from 7pm to 7am. Minimum cost over 24 months is AU$1920.

  • The large plan is a minimum of AU$100 per month for 24 months and comes with AU$900 of talk and MMS, unlimited text, 2GB of data plus free talk every night and on weekends. Minimum cost over 24 months is AU$2400.

  • The extra large plan is a minimum of AU$130 per month for 24 months and comes with unlimited talk and MMS, unlimited text and 3GB of data. Minimum cost over 24 months is AU$3120.

Telstra director of device management Andrew Volard said, "Customers have been waiting eagerly for this phone, which is the first Nexus phone to come with 4G functionality, and it couldn't arrive at a better time. Last week, we switched on our 3000th 4G-compatible base station, bringing our 4G coverage to four times that of any competitor network. That means customers using the Nexus 5 with Telstra will have access to superfast 4G speeds in more places than ever before."

The Nexus 5 can be pre-ordered now via the Telstra website. Customers who pre-order the phone will also receive a free AU$100 Google Play voucher while stocks last.
