After a series of outages in recent weeks, Australia’s largest telco Telstra are offering customers a day of free data tomorrow, April 3rd 2016. This is the second Sunday so far this year that Telstra are having a #DataDay, and there’s been plenty of warning that this one was coming so I hope you’ve had your downloads queued up! If you’re a Telstra customer go ahead and make the most of the day - stream, share, download, upload, side-load (err) as much as you like. During the last data day on February 14th, there were many reports of severe congestion on the Telstra network, and we can only hope Telstra are better prepared this time around.
It is worth noting that as Daylight Savings ends overnight in New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, Tasmania, and the Australian Capital Territory, these states put the clocks back an hour at 3am and will have a 25 hour long “data day” to enjoy.
So while you’re patiently waiting to begin those downloads as the clock strikes midnight, check out these tips from Trevor Long on “How to (legally) make the most of Telstra’s free data day.”
