Compare Optus ADSL plans
If you're still waiting for the NBN rollout to hit your address, Optus has a range of ADSL bundles to suit your needs.
What you need to know about Optus ADSL plans
The NBN rollout is continuing across the country, but if your home isn't scheduled for an upgrade in the next few years, you'll probably need to remain on an ADSL connection. Optus has a selection of ADSL bundles to choose from, aimed at delivering not just broadband, but also a home phone line and, in some cases, a streaming entertainment solution in conjunction with Fetch TV.
To help with simplicity, all of Optus's ADSL bundles offer unlimited data as part of the plan. New customers will also receive a new modem at no extra cost.
What are the different Optus ADSL bundles?
Just like the Optus NBN plans, there are three different types of ADSL bundles on offer:
- The My Basics bundle. Includes broadband access and a home phone line, as well as unlimited standard local calls.
- The My Entertainment bundle. Includes unlimited standard national landline and mobile phone calls. It also includes a Fetch TV Mighty set-top box and an entertainment subscription to 35 different streaming channels. Plus, you get free access to Optus Sports, including the EPL and Cricket Australia coverage.
- The My Entertainment Plus bundle. Adds unlimited standard international landline calls to 25 different countries and unlimited standard mobile calls to 7 different countries.
How much do Optus ADSL plans cost?
Pricing for Optus's My Basics ADSL bundle is aligned with the NBN offerings, without the option of boosting speeds, of course. The My Basics bundle costs $80 per month, which includes unlimited data and a home phone line with unlimited standard local calls. There is also a $125 set-up fee for this plan that isn't included in the My Entertainment bundle.
The My Entertainment bundle costs $110 per month, with the My Entertainment Plus bundle coming in at $140 per month.
What's included with the Fetch TV My Entertainment bundles?
Optus's My Entertainment and My Entertainment Plus ADSL bundles come with a Fetch TV Mighty DVR, which can stream more than 35 different entertainment channels as part of the plan. There are also free-to-air tuners, which have the ability to record up to six different channels while watching a seventh and the ability to pause and rewind live TV.
The Fetch TV platform also includes the exclusive rights to the English Premier League and Cricket Australia coverage.
The Fetch TV Mighty DVR can also stream Netflix and Stan directly and offers direct access to all the free-to-air catch-up TV platforms too.
