Small businesses looking for an affordable broadband solution will find a lot to like with Optus business broadband plans.

What you need to know about Optus business broadband plans

For companies with less than 150 employees, Optus offers business-focused broadband plans delivered over ADSL, cable and NBN technologies. These "Made For Business" plans are all available on both 24-month and no-lock-in, month-to-month contracts. The month-to-month contract incurs an additional set-up fee the 24-month contract doesn’t.

Made For Business plans come bundled with both a broadband service and a phone service, and unlike its home broadband plans, they are not available as a standalone broadband package. Also included is a Business Care support program, which offers a 24/7 live chat service with a support team for cable and NBN customers, fast-tracked customer support and face-to-face advice from business experts at Yes Optus stores and Optus Business Centres. As with most business broadband plans, you'll need a valid ABN or ACN to sign up for a Made For Business plan.

Regular Everyday and Entertainment broadband plans are also available to businesses, though they don't come with any of the business-oriented support benefits found in the Made For Business plans.

For companies with more than 150 employees, or organisations looking for a more comprehensive broadband solution, Optus offers custom-tailored broadband plans available only by contacting Optus directly.

What are the different Optus business broadband plans?

Optus offers a single Made For Business broadband plan designed specifically for small businesses. This plan includes unlimited monthly data, phone line rental and unlimited standard local, national and Australian mobile calls every month.

Internet speeds differ depending on whether you're signing up for an ADSL, cable or NBN plan. On ADSL, the maximum speed available is 20Mbps, but this can vary depending on the distance between your place of business and your nearest telephone exchange. On cable, the default speed is 30Mbps, with an option to upgrade to 100Mbps. NBN, meanwhile, comes with a 25Mbps connection by default, which you can boost to 100Mbps by purchasing an optional speed pack.

For all new customers, the Optus Made For Business plan also comes with a complimentary Wi-Fi modem. On ADSL and NBN connections, the bundled modem is a Sagemcom F@ST AC Wi-Fi model, while on cable plans, it's a Netgear CG3000 V2.

How much do Optus business broadband plans cost?

Regardless of the connection technology or the contract length, the Optus Made For Business broadband plan is priced at $80 a month. If you sign up for a month-to-month contract, you'll also have to pay a one-off $200 setup fee. Optus waives this fee on 24-month contracts. Be aware, though, that if you want to terminate your 24-month contract before the two years is up, you'll be slugged with an early cancellation fee of up to $500. This fee decreases the less time you have remaining on your contract.

If you're looking to increase the speed of your cable or NBN connection on a Made For Business plan, upgrading to a 100Mbps NBN connection will set you back an extra $20 a month, while upgrading to a 100Mbps cable connection will cost you an extra $30 a month.

Optus also offers an optional international call pack for its Made For Business plans, useful for businesses that deal with a lot of overseas clients. For an extra $10 a month, the World Saver Ultimate pack gets you unlimited calls to standard landlines in 25 select countries along with unlimited mobile calls to seven of those countries.
