Optus customers can get unlimited broadband data for $115 under new bundle plans announced last week according to the company. Optus runs a really solid service – I’m perhaps biased, I have Optus cable and swear it’s the best – this unlimited offer is their top tier.
The unlimited plans are available across Optus’ copper, HFC and NBN fixed networks, Optus is Australia’s second largest telco. There are no hidden fees or conditions, the ” …only condition is our acceptable use policy, which applies to all plans,” an Optus spokesperson said.
The company announced a number of new plans, with a variety of inclusions. The new plans range from a base plan at $55 month to $115 for the top tier unlimited plan. A clever bonus the company is also offering – for customers not on unlimited plans – is “Double Data’ 2 months each year customers can double their monthly data allowance, for a $10 fee ::::
While the data is unlimited, the service speed is maxed at 12Mbps down/1Mbps up at the base price, according to a critical information summary attached to the 24-month unlimited NBN phone and broadband plan.
However, customers can upgrade that speed with three “speed bolt-ons.” Paying an extra $20 per month gives the customers 100 Mbps up and 40 Mbps down. Cheaper add-ons are $10 for 50/20 Mbps and $5 for 25/10 Mbps
Customers seeking unlimited broadband have two $125 bundles to choose from ::::The first includes unlimited calling to local, national, 13/1300 and Australian mobile numbers, and unlimited international calls to landlines in 25 countries and mobiles in seven countries.
The second includes the Optus TV Connect Pack, entertainment channel pack and unlimited local, national and 13/1300 calls. Check the packge here: optus.com.au/broadband/plans
