Optus has dropped the price of three unlimited data plans on wired networks by $25 per month, from $115 per month over 24 months to $90 per month.
The plans this price drop applies to are its ‘The Broadband + Home Phone Bundle’, ‘The Entertainment Bundle’ and ‘The Big Home Bundle’, and the wired networks are Optus Cable (HFC), ADSL2+ (ULL) and NBN Fibre.
Sue Bailey, VP of Fixed Products at Optus said: “Although the majority of our customers choose to bundle one or more services with their internet connection, we know they also want the freedom to use their data in a way that suits their lifestyle.
“With Optus, customers now have the choice between bundling unlimited data with either premium entertainment, generous international call inclusions or a tablet to make the most of their home WiFi connection.”
Optus is classing this deal as a ‘special offer’ available until 6 April 2015.
The three plans include:
- Unlimited data so customers can browse and surf as much as they want with no extra charges
- No connection, delivery or hardware fees
- Great call allowances with unlimited standard local, national and 13/1300 calls to landlines
- A saving of $10 off a monthly mobile bill when bundling an Optus mobile plan with any Optus broadband connection.
If you get the Optus Entertainment Bundle, you also get 7 new channels on the Fetch set-top box, which include ‘BBC First, BBC Knowledge, UKTV, The Food Network, HGTV, Universal Channel and Nat Geo Wild.’
The Entertainment Bundle already includes over ’30 premium channels, access to free-to-air TV content, 30 pre-selected movies each month, and the option to rent over 3000 movies’, with 1TB of storage on the Fetch box that can record ‘up to 585 hours of SD free-to-air TV’.
Each plan offers unlimited calls to national standard numbers and 13/1300 numbers (and presumably 1800 numbers which are already free to call), but only the Broadband + Home Bundle includes unlimited calls to Australian mobile numbers.
The minimum 24 month cost of each $90 per month plan is $2160.
