Optus My Plan Plus contract plans offer you both simple SIM-only plans or two year plans with bundled smartphones on Optus’ 4G Plus network.
What services does Optus Mobile offer?
Optus offers a variety of mobile contract products for terms ranging from month to month or annual for SIM-only products, where you bring your own smartphone to the telco, or bundled with a wide variety of handsets over a 24 month period. Optus operates its own 4G Plus network across Australia, although the precise technology and frequency you connect on will depend on both your location and the capabilities of your specific device.
How much does Optus Mobile cost?
If you’re interested in acquiring a new handset as part of your contract, Optus typically offers 24 month contracts with bundled smartphones. The base monthly cost of these contracts ranges from $40 to $120 plus any applicable handset repayment fees. All of Optus’ 24 month contract plans include unlimited standard national calls and texts. Excluding the $40 tier, they all also include international call inclusions, and the top tier also allows for up to 10 days worth of Optus roaming travel packs.
If you’re happy with the smartphone you already have, you could consider Optus’ month by month or 12 month SIM only contract products. All of these plans include unlimited standard national talk and text inclusions; higher rate level plans also include additional data inclusions and a quantity of international calling minutes to a selection of popular locations. If you opt for a month by month contract pricing ranges from $35 to $60 per month, while 12 month contract pricing ranges from $30 to $50 per month. Your reward for a longer contract term is also delivered with higher data inclusions at similar price points.
What extras does Optus Mobile offer?
Optus Mobile customers can opt to receive access to the English Premier League soccer season for the 2016/2017 season, because Optus holds those rights, as well as the rights to the International Champions Cup. Customers on month to month or 12/24 month contract plans qualify for access to Optus’ EPL coverage via their devices, as well as options for the Fetch TV Mini set top box for TV soccer viewing. Customers who sign up before 22/8/2016 will gain access to the season for free; after that time it will be available for mobile customers at a cost of $15 per month.
Optus also allows families to form a single data pool from a range of Optus contracts to maximise the use of a combined data quota, which could be beneficial if you have multiple SIMs on Optus contract.
Optus also offers a new phone trade up facility that allows you to upgrade your handset after only twelve months if you pay a one-off fee of $99 and re-contract for a further two years.
