What are the best phone plans on the Optus network?

Advertisement

The Optus phone network is home to more mobile service providers than any other, meaning you have plenty of choice if the Optus network is your preferred communications platform. Whilst Optus owns and operates the network, the telco giant sells the use of its infrastructure to numerous smaller mobile carriers which are known as mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs).

So, if you’re thinking of switching plans, but love the speed and service you’re currently receiving with the Optus network, you may want to consider one of these many third-party providers. We’ve reviewed some of the best providers and their SIM-only plans on the Optus network to help see you through. Read on for details or jump straight into our comparison tool to find a great deal.

Mobile Phone Plans on the Optus Network

If you’re hankering for some extra bite to your mobile plan, there are over ten standout providers on the Optus network all jostling for your attention, including of course Optus itself. as well as well-known telcos such as Amaysim, Vaya and iiNet. But did you know there are many more telcos to choose from? The leading Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs) on the Optus network include:

Catch Connect

Catch Connect is the newest provider in this list, and you’ve probably heard of ‘Catch’ before. Catch, as you might know, is an online retailer with staggering discounts and on-the-spot sales. Now, the company also has a series of low-cost, prepaid phone plans. There are three base plans over 30 days, but if you prepay for 90 or 365 days you stand to save e ven more in the long run. Currently, Catch lays claim to one of the most competitive 3GB prepaid plans out there, at just $15 for 30 days. Users prepaying for their plans over 90 or 365 days may save, but must also be cautious not to use their whole data pool before their three months or a year is up! Doing so could mean it’s a false economy. Just to recap:

  • Some of the most competitive plans out there
  • Discounts by prepaying for 90 or 365 days upfront
  • Three simple base plans

Moose’s other plans are fairly competitive, too, and it also has a range of 3G plans with big data available. Moose has also branched out to offer even more competitive 12 month plans, to compete with a raft of other providers doing the same. If you’re not a commitment-phobe you could save some dough in the long run. To recap:

Southern Phone

Southern Phone is a provider with another noble cause; some of its profits go to regional/rural councils to help build telecommunications infrastructure. Southern Phone also provides some pretty competitive postpaid phone plans. Southern Phone is yet another provider that offers big incentives if you sign up for 12 months. The telco also provides plans on the Telstra network. All of its Optus network plans come with unlimited calls & texts, which is a solid inclusion given the tiny entry price of $12. There are four base plans, with extra data or discounts if you sign up for 12 months.

Plus, its two most expensive plans boast 30GB and 90GB of data! These plans use 3G data only, though. It’s refreshing to see a telco offering distinct plans.

Yomojo

Yomojo is staking its claim in the postpaid sector with some solid phone plans. It’s another provider that also offers the same plans on a prepaid basis.

Yomojo has one of the cheapest plans to offer unlimited calls and texts plus 2GB of data, which comes in at under $20! Not only this, but there is also the opportunity to build your own plan, though the value here is somewhat questionable.

Amaysim

One of the best-known and most popular MVNOs out there, Amaysim’s explicitly online-only business model allows it to deliver great value on all of its SIM only 4G plans. It also offers identical plans on a prepaid basis, so pick your poison. Amaysim offers five different plans with 28 day expiry, most with unlimited calls and texts and some great data inclusions. The increasing price points simply reflect the additional data as well as international inclusions, making these plans easy to compare. Be aware though that these plans expire after 28 days, as opposed to the 30 days you get with most other carriers. So let’s just recap what Amaysim offers:

  • Easy to compare plans by data allowance
  • Some of the cheapest prices on the Optus network
  • Plans expire after 28 days instead of 30

This is how Amaysim’s plans shape up:

Coles Mobile

All three major grocery chains in Australia provide phone plans (ALDI and Woolworths both operate on the Telstra network), but Coles Mobile stacks up well against its rivals. Coles has three plans – $10, $20 and $40 in price. The latter two plans are both on 28 day expiry periods, with unlimited calls and texts, as well as 2GB and 7GB of data respectively. The $10 plan is over 10 days, and even with this short billing period it still works out to be pretty solid value. You can recharge with your Flybuys points, though, keep in mind that the plans have 28 day billing periods whereas others are 30 days.

Jeenee Mobile

Jeenee Mobile is an MVNO with a conscience. It uses some of its profits to help people with disabilities get hold of a phone for easier communications, to give them a sense of increased independence. Though, that doesn’t mean its phone plans are lacklustre – far from it! All plans come with unlimited calls & texts as standard and you get a choice of a no lock-in, 6 month, or 12 month contract, with lots of incentives for signing on for the long haul. You also get the same benefits if you simply stick around for a while – talk about loyalty!

Jeenee Mobile also has ‘Mammoth’ plans, which offer 30GB and 90GB of data. These massive amounts of data are on the 3G network, but are still great value. The rest of the plans are also among some of the cheapest in the competition considering the amount of data you get. Jeenee Mobile stands out for:

  • Giving back to the community
  • Big incentives for signing on for 6 or 12 months
  • Massive ‘Mammoth’ plans with lots of data

Optus

Of course, we couldn’t write a review of phone plans on the Optus network without mentioning the mothership herself. It goes without saying that the telco giant provides a fairly large range of phone plans – over 20 when you add them all up over prepaid and postpaid terms. You can choose a phone plan over 12 months or without a contract at all in the postpaid space. Your one year commitment will see some extra value included.

In addition to strong data offerings, the big selling point of these plans is that they also periodically provide bonuses like data boosts and limitless music streaming! Some plans also have included access to the English Premier League via Optus Sport. The plans range from $10 a month, all the way up to $100, and Optus plays host to some of the cheaper iPhone plans. Below are a handful of them, but first let’s consider the main positives of Optus postpaid plans:

  • 10GB of video streaming data for Netflix, Stan, etc. each month on Epic data plans
  • Impressive data inclusions at mid-range price points
  • Better value on offer if you commit to 12 month contract

Who offers the best value on the Optus network?

If you’re after a new phone plan on the Optus network, there truly is a huge selection of great value offers to choose from. The list isn’t complete in this article – there are handfuls more that may be up your alley.

  • In the postpaid arena it’s hard to beat Amaysim, Jeenee Mobile and Moose Mobile at different price points and for different reasons.
  • In the prepaid sphere all providers have something solid to offer, with OVO standing out for offering cheap no-fuss plans with data-free V8 Supercars streaming.

However, there’s nary a bad apple in the whole landscape! In fact, each of these providers has a unique selling point. Some have big data at a cheap price; some have extra bonuses like data-free music streaming; some have iPhone 8 plans on offer and so on. Good luck trying to decide! It pays to shop around for the best deal that’s right for you.
