Telstra's new Data Share packages allow you to share your mobile data allowance with up to three additional mobile SIM-ready devices such as laptops and tablets, the telco has announced today.

The package is placed on top of Telstra's Every Day Connect plan, and starts at AU$80 per month. This includes an extra AU$10 per month for Data Share, and each additional SIM will cost another AU$10 per month on top of the Every Day Connect AU$60 price. With that, users get 1.1GB of data to share between devices, AU$600 of calls and MMS and unlimited SMS.

The Data Share plan is also available with the medium AU$80 Every Day Connect plan (minimum cost per month of AU$100 with data share), the large AU$100 Every Day Connect plan (minimum AU$120) and the extra large AU$130 Every Day Connect plan (minimum AU$150).

The minimum cost on the small plan is AU$960 for 12 months or AU$1920 for 24 months. Users who sign up before 31 December 2013 will receive an additional 1GB of data per month for 12 months.

"With people more connected than ever before, customers are looking for a simple solution that will allow them to manage their usage across all their devices and make their data allowance go further," said Telstra's Karsten Wildberger. "Telstra's Every Day Connect Data Share Packages will help fill that gap and allow customers to share their monthly mobile data allowance between their mobile and multiple data devices — including tablets and laptops — all under one package."
