Optus appeals to customer ‘usage habits’ with launch of new 5G Internet plans Featured


Optus is launching two new 5G Internet plans targeting its customers with the options of selecting a 5G high speed and streamed entertainment package it claims will best meet their usage habits.

Optus says it will launch a new 5G Internet Entertainer plan at $90 per month - to be available later this year - providing customers with access to uncapped speeds on its 5G network that currently delivers an average download speed of 214Mbps (between 7pm-11pm).

Under the new offers, customers also get unlimited data and one month free and to the ‘Entertainer’ plan which includes Optus Sport and a Fetch Mighty box, with a Premium Channel pack included - offering over 45 plus channels of premium streamed entertainment.

Optus also announced it will launch a 5G Internet Everyday Plan at $75 per month, offering “maximum speeds” of 100Mbps (with an estimated average download speed of 85Mbps between 7pm-11pm) and combining unlimited data with Optus Sport included, “giving customers access to premium health and fitness content through OS Fitness, on the Optus Sport app, plus one month free”.

“In anticipation of these new 5G Internet plans, Optus is launching the Optus 5G Internet Everyday Plan first and is giving customers who sign up to this plan now, a chance to enjoy the uncapped ‘Entertainer’ speeds, as well as access to incredible content from Optus Sport for $75 per month. This limited time Optus 5G Internet Everyday Plan offer is available from 11 September 2020,” Optus announced.

“Customers tell us that choice, value and speed are important to them and our new 5G Internet plans deliver exactly this. 5G creates a whole new world of experiences within the home with the ability to stream and share content from multiple devices at the same time - something that has become increasingly important this year, as our way of working, schooling and living has changed,” said Matt Williams, Optus Managing Director Marketing and Revenue.

“Having been in market with this world leading product for nearly a year, we have seen and learnt how our thousands of customers are using our 5G Internet. What is clear is that customers enjoy choice and flexibility when it comes to home internet, so we have designed these new 5G Internet plans to create options for our customers – delivering them a high speed and entertainment package that works best for their lifestyle.”
