Optus makes Stan unmetered for home broadband, offers 3-month freebie
Optus home broadband customers will get a three-month bonus Stan subscription when signing up for two years.
Optus has announced that the latest perk for its home broadband customers will be a three-month free subscription to Australian streaming service Stan. To qualify, you’ve got to sign up for a 24 month "Ultimate" home broadband service, starting at $70 per month. The deal will run until 30 April 2016.
If you're an existing Optus subscriber registered with Optus' "Perks" bonus scheme, you'll also get a 3 month Stan freebie sent to you via email.
Optus also announced that it’s going to offer all Stan content quota-free across its home broadband plans, meaning any viewing of the streaming service won't count against your data allowance. That part of the deal doesn’t kick in until 1 April 2016. Many of Optus’ higher tier packages offer unlimited data in any case, although the lowest tier $70 Basics Bundle (that does qualify for three months of Stan free) only comes with 200GB of data.
The move to shift Stan into its quota-free zone puts Optus in the interesting position of being the only Australian ISP to offer quota-free access to multiple streaming services to its customers, as it already offers unmetered access to Netflix. Competitor iiNet offers quota-free access to Netflix only, while Telstra (and Foxtel Broadband) offer Presto quota-free.
