Optus 5G phone plans

'If you don't already have a 5G phone, you'll need one if you want to get access to the Optus 5G network. There are a couple of 5G phones available from Optus. We've shown Optus's iPhone 12 and Samsung S20 plans below, but you can choose your own phone models by clicking the 'filter results' button.

Optus 5G home wireless

Optus 5G Home Internet costs $70 per month, which is quite competitive for the speeds you're purported to get. Average download speeds are advertised at 147Mbps, which is much faster than any fixed-line Internet speed that you'll get at that price point.

Additionally, there's a 50Mbps Satisfaction Guarantee, which essentially means that if you can't get at least 50Mbps, then you're free to cancel with no charge. Still, it's only available in select areas and can be affected significantly by environmental factors like walls, trees, weather and line-of-sight.

Optus also sells quite a few 5G compatible devices, with 5G access available free of charge with any of its BYO or phone plans.

Future coverage areas

Optus doesn't publish its future rollout maps, but you can register your interest on the Optus website to be notified when your area is ready.
