Best Black Friday smartphone plans in Australia 2021

Product deals in the Black Friday sales are so common, they could veritably fall out of the sky. But a lesser known fact is that there are also some excellent deals going on phone plans.

Which carriers participate? The three majors – Vodafone, Optus and Telstra for starters, but there are also a number of other carriers in on the action. So who’s offering what? We dig into what’s on offer in 2021:
