    The reason I didn't know if this had been mentioned before is because
    news.datemas.de is playing up.

    Parkington's earlier posts (and the replies thereto) just arrived on my
    server.

    Telstra's iPhone entry upsets rivals' apple cart

    * Jesse Hogan
    * July 1, 2008

    HOPES of Optus and Vodafone of an iPhone-fuelled sales edge over Telstra
    have been dashed by the No. 1 telco finally reaching a deal with Apple.

    While Telstra's announcement comes three weeks after those of Optus and
    Vodafone, its tardiness is immaterial because all three will begin selling
    the device on July 11.

    The issue of Telstra selling the iPhone - an iPod music player with
    built-in voice calling and internet access - had more been about "when"
    rather than "if" because of its suitability for 850-megahertz 3G networks,
    exclusively used in Australia by Telstra for its Next G network.

    The iPhone will also work on the 2100MHz networks used by all carriers in
    metropolitan areas but not on the 900MHz networks Optus and Vodafone are
    building in less densely populated areas.

    Telstra also gave more detail on pricing than its rivals. The cheapest
    monthly plan will be $30, paying either $279 upfront for an eight-gigabyte
    iPhone or $399 for a 16Gb model. Customers who do not want to pay upfront
    could sign up to an $80 plan for the 8Gb model or a $100 plan for the 16Gb
    model.

    While the 24-month plans will offer free Wi-Fi internet access at Telstra
    hot spots, such as McDonald's and Starbucks stores, there was no detail
    about pricing, suggesting no plan will feature capped pricing and that
    customers will have to pay extra for wireless internet access. Optus
    confirmed it would offer the 8Gb model for $0 upfront on its $79 cap.

    3 Mobile, now the only carrier without iPhone rights, has tried to
    increase pressure on its rivals by undercutting their capped pricing
    plans.
