Compare Optus NBN plans

Nick Broughall 10 February 2017

One of the country's largest broadband providers, Optus has a wide range of NBN plans and bundles to meet your needs.


What you need to know about Optus NBN plans

Optus has long stood alongside Telstra as one of the pillars of the Australian telecommunications industry, providing both mobile and broadband services to Australian customers around the country. With the rollout of the NBN, Optus has developed a series of plans and bundles to cater to a wide range of broadband needs using the new national broadband network.

Each bundle is available across each of the NBN speed tiers, with the base level nbn12 speed being the cheapest option and higher speeds incurring extra charges.

Thanks to its partnership with Fetch TV, Optus can offer its customers a solid entertainment package as part of its broadband bundles, which can include Optus's exclusive access to the English Premier League competition.

All of Optus's NBN plans are available on 24-month contracts and come with an unlimited data allowance.

What are the different Optus NBN bundles?

Optus offers three different NBN bundles:

  • The My Basics bundle. Includes broadband access and a home phone line.
  • The My Entertainment bundle. Adds a wider range of included phone calls, a Fetch TV Mighty set-top box, a subscription to 35 different streaming channels and free access to Optus Sports, including the EPL and Cricket Australia coverage. It also includes a speed boost to the nbn25 speed tier by default.
  • The My Entertainment Plus bundle. Adds a range of international calling options and the maximum speed boost to nbn100 speeds.

How much do Optus NBN plans cost?

Pricing for Optus's My Basics bundle starts at $80 per month, which includes unlimited data and a home phone line with unlimited standard local calls. You can increase the speed of this plan by opting for a speed boost add-on, which will increase the cost of the plan.

The My Entertainment bundle starts at $110 per month for the nbn25 speed tier, with an additional speed boost available. The My Entertainment Plus bundle comes with the highest speed tier available and costs $140 per month.

What's included with the Fetch TV My Entertainment bundles?

Fetch TV is a powerful pay TV platform that uses the Internet to deliver more than 35 entertainment channels to your TV. As part of the Optus NBN bundles, Optus includes a Fetch TV Mighty DVR and the Entertainment channel pack, which includes more than 35 channels. You can pause and rewind live TV on any streaming channel, including free-to-air TV, with enough tuners to be able to record up to six channels while watching something else.

It also offers quick and easy access to streaming services like Netflix and Stan, as well as catch-up TV services like ABC iview, SBS On Demand, 9Now, PLUS7 and TENplay.

Perhaps more interestingly, though, is the ability to access the Optus Sports service, which is the exclusive channel for watching the English Premier League in Australia.

      Hello Danny,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      The channels/shows you have mentioned are not available in Optus Fetch TV, which would be your subscription service under Optus NBN Plans. You can read more about Fetch on this page.

      Optus TV featuring Foxtel services are available in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane or are within cable or HFC-cable enabled area, you may confirm with Optus directly if they offer these in there.

      Hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      Jonathan

      Hi Clem,

      Thank you for contacting finder.com.au. We are a comparison website and general information service, we’re more than happy to offer general advice.

      The pensioner discount depends on the plan you’re on as some plans are ineligible for the discount. It would be best to contact Optus directly.

      For other options, you may refer to this page.

      I hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      Danielle
