Optus currently tops Canstar Blue’s customer satisfaction ratings for mobile broadband providers and is now pushing to increase the value proposition further with beefed-up data allowances and data-free TV and music streaming on selected plans.
Available for new and existing customers, plans start from $15 per month for 2GB of data over a 24-month contract. The data inclusions increase steadily, with 25GB available for just $50 per month, and the aforementioned 50GB deal for $70 per month, again over two-year terms.
“These plans have it all: generous data inclusions, loads of entertainment, and a great range of tablets and dongles, all delivered over Optus’ reliable mobile network,” said Tim Cowan, Head of Mobile Marketing at Optus.
Mobile broadband plans compared
