The deal sees amaysim making its offer to all new NBN residential customers from today (19 June) until 30 June 2017.
Amaysim commercial director of broadband Rob Appel says the launch is in response to NBN Co recently revealing that less than half of the five million homes and businesses that are currently NBN-ready have actually signed up to the service, “mostly due to cost and complexity”.
“We pride ourselves on making things easier for our customers by offering amazing value NBN plans, no-lock in contracts and a brilliant online customer experience, but we get that some people may need to get hands-on with the service before they feel secure in making the move to the NBN,” Appel says.
“amaysim’s NBN plans are built on simplicity, all with unlimited data, no lock-in contracts, no standard activation fees, and the flexibility to switch between the three download speed options of up to 12, 25 and 100Mbps without penalty. The ‘first month free’ trial includes the option to bring your own modem, but customers can also purchase a pre-configured NetComm NF17ACV modem when they sign up.”
amaysim’s move to replicate its success in the MVNO mobile market in the broaband market follows its acquisition last year of Australian Broadband Services (AusBBS), a company launched in 2012.
