If you're looking for competitive NBN offers or internet on the go, consider amaysim's broadband plans.
What services does amaysim offer?
amaysim is an Australian telco provider that runs on the Optus 3G/4G mobile broadband network, covering more than 98% of the population. Customers can expect the same coverage and download speeds offered by Optus, with independent pricing and plan structures, and customer service available 16-hours a day. As as internet provider, amaysim offers mobile broadband that can be used with any internet enabled device. You can bring your own or buy an unlocked device from amaysim.
amaysim also offers unlimited NBN plans so you can get all the same benefits with your home broadband plan, as well as month to month plans without any lock in contracts to worry about.
How much does amaysim cost?
amaysim offers a range of mobile broadband plans with varying levels of included data. Prices start at $10 a month for 1GB of data, with a 2GB option and a 6GB option also on offer.
All of amaysim's data only mobile plans expire after 28 days, and there are no long-expiry options on offer in the data-only space.
amaysim NBN plans start from $60 per month for unlimited data at 12/1Mbps, or you can upgrade to 25/5Mbps from only $70 per month. The fastest plan available is 100/40Mbps for $90 per month.
What additional services are included?
What voice options are provided?
Being a data only plan, there's no voice call component, though there is a selection of data-rich amaysim phone plans available as well.
What happens if I exceed my monthly download limit?
amaysim used to charge excess data at 7.2c/MB, but a recent update to the company's pricing structure means that you can now get an additional 1GB of data for $10. amaysim will notify you when you have used 50%, 85%, and 100% of your data allowance, but keep in mind that it can take up to 48 hours for the notification messages to be sent out.
