The telco says the new plans are aimed at new and existing customers who want a simple Internet solution, “without the hassle of a fixed broadband connection”.
With all telcos and market players responding to consumer demand for more and more data, Optus’ plans, available from 5 September, include 200GB of data for $80 a month on a Home Wireless Broadband 24-month contract or month-to-month plan, or $90 a month on a 12-month contract.
Ben White, managing director of marketing and product at Optus, says the data inclusion are the biggest ever offered by Optus on its 4G network, and “represents fantastic value for customers”.
“We’ve listened to our customers and revamped our Home Wireless Broadband offer to focus on more of what they want – a simple plug-and-play broadband solution, with plenty of data, and automatic data top ups.”
White says Home Wireless Broadband is ideal for renters who need an Internet connection “with a generous data allowance, people who need a broadband service without the wait, or customers living in areas that can’t get a reliable fixed broadband access”.
Powered by Optus’ 4G spectrum, Home Wireless Broadband is an out-of-the-box modem that can be connected to the Internet in a matter of minutes by activating a SIM, and connecting to a power supply.
