What you need to know about Optus business mobile broadband plans

Optus offers a range of postpaid mobile broadband plans designed for businesses that operate on the go. These SIM-only "Data SIM" plans are powered by Optus's 4G Plus network with coverage to over 95.9% of Australian residents and are available on both 12-month and month-to-month contracts.

Along with their varying levels of monthly data, Optus Data SIM plans come with a number of extra features geared towards supporting and growing your business. These include data pooling, which lets you combine the monthly data allowances of multiple Optus mobile and mobile broadband plans into one large bucket so that employees with heftier data requirements can take advantage of other employees' unused data; discounts of up to 20% off your monthly bill when you bundle multiple Optus mobile or mobile broadband plans together into a single business account; and 24/7 Business Care support for assistance with both technical issues and advice from business experts.

If you're looking for a more complete mobile broadband solution, Optus also offers plans bundled with a range of tablets, 4G modems and USB Wi-Fi dongles. You can purchase these devices outright or pay them off in monthly instalments over the course of a two-year contract.

For large businesses with more than 150 employees, Optus recommends its Mobile Data Fleet and Business Access plans. Optus can custom build these plans specifically for your business, but you will need to contact Optus directly in order to apply for one of these plans.

What are the different Optus business mobile broadband plans?

Optus Data SIM plans come with different data caps depending on whether you sign up for a 12-month contract or a month-to-month contract. On a 12-month contract, plans start at 3GB of data a month and go up to 140GB of data a month. On a month-to-month contract, plans begin at 2GB a month and cap out at 100GB a month.

In addition to the monthly data allowance, all Data SIM plans include data-free music streaming through the Google Play Music, iHeartRadio and Spotify mobile apps, letting you listen to as much music through those services as you wish without using up your monthly data. Plans of $35 a month or more also come with an Optus Sport subscription, which gets you access to live streams of English Premier League matches and Aussie cricket matches.

How much do Optus business mobile broadband plans cost?

Month-to-month Data SIM plans start at $15 a month for 2GB of data and increase to $25 a month for 5GB, $35 a month for 10GB, $50 a month for 25GB and $70 a month for 100GB. The 12-month contracts begin at $15 a month for 3GB of data and go up to $35 a month for 15GB followed by $70 a month for a hefty 140GB.

Optus doesn't charge set-up or activation fees for its Data SIM plans, and on a month-to-month contract, you can cancel at any time without penalty. However, on a 12-month contract, terminating your service before the year is up will incur an early cancellation fee of up to $252. The amount you have to pay decreases the further into your contract you are.

If at any time you or your employees exceed the total monthly data in your data pool, Optus will automatically charge you $10 and add an extra 1GB of data to the pool. If you exhaust that 1GB, Optus will continue charging you at $10 per 1GB up to a maximum of 150GB on top of your standard monthly cap, at which point Optus may continue billing at that same rate, or it may restrict your service for the rest of the month.
