Telstra says this is the first time the telco has offered home broadband bundles with unlimited data allowances. Why? Streaming, mostly.

Conveniently times to follow the release of the Telstra TV, the two Unlimited plans on offer are a $99 per month (over 24 months) bundle that includes Telstra TV, three months of Foxtel Now, pay as you go calls and a Telstra Gateway Frontier Modem. The $130 per month plan gives you the option of two years of Foxtel Now or Foxtel from Telstra.

You can find out more about them (read the fine print, kids) here.

But back to all that data we are chewing up streaming.

"In the past year alone, traffic carried over our fixed network has increased by 40 per cent," Telstra Group Executive for Consumer and Small Business Vicki Brady said.

"Streaming entertainment content has become a way of life for Australians, with around two thirds of us now streaming our favourite shows. We're also using more connected devices in the home than ever before with the rise of smart home technologies."

Brady reckons not having a data limit will "provide peace of mind" as we keep growing our data usage.

How much data are you using a month?
