OVO’s new plans want to keep your kids safe

Posted: 14 December 2016 11:28 am


OVO’s latest prepaid plans include a cyber-security app for kids' phones.

OVO Mobile is best known as an MVNO with a sports focus, launching with an exclusive V8 Supercars streaming deal before later adding Gymnastics Australia content as well. Operating on Optus’ 4G network, it has long offered good value packages for those who only want 30-day prepaid contracts to deal with.

OVO’s latest set of plan updates bring in some lower cost options with new Mini and Small plans, priced at $9.95 and $14.95 per month respectively. Unlike OVO’s other offers they’re not plans with unlimited included calls, although unlimited standard national texts are included. Instead you get either $200 or $500 of call credit to use within your 30-day expiry period on calls, priced at 99c per minute with a 40c flagfall. All plans are prepaid with 30 days expiry, but recharges are by default set to automatically top up.

OVO will also provide free access for parents on any plan to Family Zone, an application suite that allows you to moderate online searches, acceptable content and online screen time for enrolled devices. There’s no additional charge for Family Zone, presuming you keep recharging, with a claimed $49.50 value as part of the deal. For its part, Family Zone will work across a whole slew of devices, but the OVO Mobile deal only applies to a single enrolled device, so if you wanted to extend your parenting control across the family, you'd have to buy additional subscriptions.

Here is how OVO’s plan pricing now compares across its entire range of prepaid plans:
