OVO Mobile offers prepaid plans with an accent on providing free sports streaming to its customers.
What services does OVO Mobile offer?
OVO Mobile offers prepaid mobile phone services on a SIM only basis using Optus’ Australian 4G network. It doesn’t sell prepaid phones, so you’ll have to supply an unlocked handset to utilise its services.
How much does OVO Mobile cost?
OVO Mobile currently offers three plan tiers, all of which operate on a 30 day expiry prepaid basis. The lowest cost plan starts at $29.95 per recharge for 1.5GB of data and unlimited standard national calls and texts during your expiry period. The mid-range $49.95 plan ups the data to 6GB, while the top-end $69.95 plan comes with 9GB of data usage included.
What extras does OVO Mobile offer?
OVO Mobile’s big point of differentiation in the MVNO space is its focus on sports sponsorships. It launched as the official network of V8 Supercars, and this gives it mobile streaming rights to a variety of V8 action, all of which is delivered to customers on a quota-free basis. It also has a deal in place with Gymnastics Australia for content streaming on a similar basis. If you’re a fan of either sport, the allure of not only getting access, but incurring no ongoing data charges for it is pretty strong.
OVO also sells boost packs for calls to overseas or premium numbers, with prices ranging from $5-$20 per recharge. It also sells $15-$50 roaming packs if you're travelling overseas with your OVO SIM. Both the extra and roaming packs can be rolled over for up to 90 days.
