Optus launches new ‘epic’ pre-paid plans


Optus has launched its latest prepaid offerings, marketing them under the so-called “Epic” banner and with one plan tempting customers with 5GB plus entertainment inclusions on every $30 recharge.

Of the two plans released on Tuesday, the Optus Epic Data plan gives customers 5GB of anytime data and up to 10GB to stream all their favourite shows on Netflix, Stan and ABC iview.

And Optus also released its Epic Value plan which gives customers who want more days instead of data, a 42-day expiry and 1GB of data with every $30 recharge.

Each of the new plans comes with unlimited standard national talk and text on recharges of $30 or more and allows customers to rollover data up to 50GB of data to be rolled over into their next recharge, if recharged before expiry.

Optus’ managing director for marketing & product, Ben White, said the new plans deliver “epic value to suit a range of needs”.

“In addition to the standard 5GB of data, our new Prepaid Epic Data plan also gives you up to 10GB of streaming data which allows our data-hungry users to watch their favourite TV shows on-the-go, on Netflix, Stan and ABC iview.

“We are really excited to launch the Prepaid Epic Value plan that offers customers 42 days of unlimited talk and text and 1GB of data,” Mr White said.

“These new Epic Prepaid plans allow our customers to experience premium content delivered via our winning premium network, at a great price.”

White said that with the 2018 FIFA World Cup only about a week away, Optus Prepaid customers can also sign up to an Optus Sport subscription for $14.99/month.

“The sporting entertainment doesn’t end at the World Cup, with Optus Sport Premium subscriptions providing access to all of Optus Sport’s exclusive content, which continues with the start of the 2018/19 English Premier League season in August 2018,” White said.
