Boost Mobile is the latest telco to raise its prices, with most month-to-month plans increasing by $5.

The Telstra MNVO announced the move to customers by email, with new and existing customers set to pay the higher rates from July 4, 2023.

In its missive to customers, Boost Mobile did not specify a reason for the price hike but framed the move as one born from unfortunate necessity.

"From time to time the prices of our services are reviewed, and the decision has been made to increase the prices of our plans from 4 July 2023. We know any price rise is hard and it’s not a decision that has been taken lightly," it said.

Those on cheaper 28-day expiry Boost Mobile plans are getting off with a $2 increase while others are looking at an increase of $5 per month. That number might sound pretty small, but it'll add up quickly over the course of a year.

Prepaid customers on a Boost Mobile $200 long expiry plan are being hit with the largest increase of $30, but since that mobile plan covers a longer period, the equivalent "monthly" cost is only rising about $2.50 or so.

Boost Mobile's $70 prepaid 28-day expiry mobile plan is the only option that isn't rising in price. Moreover, this plan will now offer 90GB per month rather than 65GB per month. In fact, every single plan on the Boost Mobile roster is getting a similar bump in gigabytes.

Check out the table below for a full breakdown of how the prices and included data of each Boost Mobile prepaid plan is changing.
