Compare Optus business ADSL plans

If your business is still waiting on the NBN, Optus's ADSL plans offer a smooth upgrade path to tide you over.

What you need to know about Optus business ADSL plans

While Optus offers its Ultra and Ultra Entertainment ADSL plans to businesses as well as regular residential customers, these plans are identical to their residential counterparts and offer no additional benefits to business owners. For an ADSL plan tailored to Aussie businesses, Optus offers its Ultra Office ADSL plan that comes with unlimited data, unlimited local, national and mobile calls within Australia and a range of support options designed to keep your business running as smoothly as possible. These support options include a 24/7 Live Chat service for technical assistance, fast-tracked customer support when phoning Optus directly and the ability to seek advice from small-business experts at select Yes Optus stores and Optus Business Centres.

All Optus business ADSL plans are available on 24-month or month-to-month contracts, and the monthly cost remains the same regardless of how long you sign up for. Phone line rental is bundled in with the Optus Ultra, Ultra Entertainment and Ultra Office plans, but only the basic Ultra option is available as a standalone Internet service. If you want the benefit of Optus' business-oriented support options, you're stuck signing up for both a phone and a broadband service.

What are the different Optus business ADSL plans?

The Optus Ultra Office ADSL plan includes unlimited monthly data, phone line rental and unlimited standard local, national and mobile calls within Australia. As with all Optus ADSL plans, Internet speeds max out at 20Mbps, though you may see speeds much lower than that depending on factors like how close your business is to the nearest telephone exchange and the quality of the copper wiring installed at your building.

If you're a new Optus broadband customer, you'll also score a free Sagemcom F@ST AC Wi-Fi modem with your Ultra Office plan. Existing customers must purchase a compatible modem separately.

And don't forget that you'll need a valid ABN or ACN to sign up for an Optus Made For Business plan.

How much do Optus business ADSL plans cost?

Optus charges a flat a month for its Ultra Office plan, both on a 24-month contract and a month-to-month contract. On a 24-month contract, you won't have to pay any set-up fees, but you will be slugged with an early cancellation fee of up to $550 if you decide to terminate your service before the two years are up. If you opt for the month-to-month contract, you'll need to cover a one-off $200 set-up fee, but you'll be able to cancel your service at any time without penalty.

For businesses that make a lot of overseas calls, Optus offers an international call pack for an extra $10 a month that gets you unlimited calls to landlines in 25 countries as well as unlimited calls to mobiles in 7 of those countries.
