Optus has upped the ante in the battle for customers in the hotly contested mobile market, launching new double data offers on selected My Plan Plus handset plans and selected mobile broadband plans.

The latest offers are aimed at new and recontracting customers and come as Optus continues to offer double data on selected My Plan Flex leasing plans and selected SIM only plans.

Optus managing director of Marketing and Product, Ben White, said, “Optus already offers a huge range of data-free entertainment streaming across current postpaid plans for new and recontracting customers, so these double data offers ensure those customers can maximise their data for use in web browsing and downloads.

“This is the first time Optus has offered so much added value across such a wide range of plans, and as they’re only available for a limited time we encourage customers to grab a great deal.”

Here’s what Optus’ says about its latest offers:

Samsung Galaxy S9:

  •  Optus is offering the Galaxy S9 64GB to lease on My Plan Flex for $85 per month with $0 upfront handset fees and 32GB of monthly data, which includes 16GB of bonus data, over 24 months (min. total cost $2040). Offer available until 15 April 2018.

iPhone X:

  • Optus is offering the iPhone X 256GB to lease on My Plan Flex for $100 per month on a 24-month plan, with $0 upfront handset repayments and 80GB of monthly data, which includes 40GB of bonus data, over 24 months (min. total cost $2400). Offer available until 15 April 2018.

Mobile Broadband:

  • Optus today launched double data on select Mobile Broadband plans for customers who want to connect their tablet devices on-the-go. Customers can sign up to a month-to-month or 24-month My Mobile Broadband Plus plan and pay $50 per month for 50GB of monthly data, up from 25GB, (min. total cost over 24 months is $1,200) or $70 per month for a massive 200GB of data each month, which is a 100GB monthly bonus (min. total cost over 24 months is $1,680). These offers are available until 2 April 2018.
