Optus adds data to Unlimited Prepaid deal
More data, more calls and a better data rollover offer for Optus My Prepaid Unlimited customers.
Optus’ latest deal for its My Unlimited Prepaid SIM-only offering sees selected plans with double data and every tier of recharge above $30 at least getting some additional data. The $30 and $40 tiers double their data to 3GB and 8GB respectively, while the $50 recharge tier adds 3GB of bonus data to a total of 9GB. Lower value recharges at the $10 and $20 price point stay with 200MB and 500MB of data only. That part of the deal runs through to 1 May 2016.
Recharges of $40 or more on the My Prepaid Unlimited plan will also get unlimited International calls to China, India, USA, UK, New Zealand, Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong, South Korea and Malaysia. Again, that deal is applicable until 1 May 2016.
Optus has also upped the data rollover top level for the My Ultimate Prepaid plans. Previously, as long as you recharged within your expiry period you could accrue up to 10GB of data in reserve to use within your new expiry period. Optus has now upped the amount you can have in reserve to 15GB, with no sign of an obvious expiry period on that part of the deal. As always, however, if you’re rolling over data on a prepaid plan, it may be a sign that you’re recharging at a tier that’s too high, especially given that most of Optus’ plans offer unlimited local calls and texts anyway.
The other notable catch with the Optus My Prepaid Ultimate plan is that the recharge period for these plans is only 28 days rather than 30 days, which means over a longer period you’ll have to pay for more recharges than on a standard 30 day expiry plan.
