OVO mobile: Essential facts for the shutdown

  • In June 2020, amaysim announced its acquisition of OVO's mobile subscribers
  • Existing OVO customers will still receive their service, and be transferred across to an equivalent amaysim mobile plan
  • OVO customers on 30-day plans will be able to continue receiving the same renewal period, instead of getting a 28-day plan from amaysim

OVO is no longer operating as a mobile provider, after being acquired by amaysim in June 2020. This means that if you currently have a mobile plan with OVO, you'll be transferred across to a similar plan under amaysim.

If you're an existing OVO mobile customer, you can expect to be contacted by OVO before its service transfer begins to discuss information about how your plan will change. Since OVO was operating under the Optus network, which is also what amaysim uses, you shouldn't receive any service disruption.

Of course, amaysim will try its best to keep you on as a customer. It's currently the largest MVNO in Australia, with around 1.17 million users, and its acquisition of OVO seeks to increase this number. OVO customers will be offered a plan with value equal to, or better than, their existing mobile plan and most customers will also receive increased inclusions. This includes keeping your 30-day renewal period, instead of taking amaysim's 28-day plans.

Take a look at amaysim's range of mobile plans

To give you an idea of what you can expect from an amaysim plan when you get transferred over, check out their range of prepaid plans below. Remember, if you're an existing OVO customer, the provider has said that you'll walk away with a slightly better deal than the offers below.

If amaysim's plans aren't enticing you, it could be worth having a look around at other options on the market and comparing mobile plans to see what's best for you.

      Hi Addie,

      Thanks for your comment.

      As finder.com.au is a third party comparison website, I’m afraid we may not be able to check your activation request with OVO. You’d be best to get in touch with OVO directly to make a follow-up. You can also click on the green ‘Go to site’ button above to visit their website.

      Cheers,
      May
