Australia’s second largest telco announced the so-called Free‘gional’ offer on Monday to eligible customers in more than 1,400 regional locations across Australia.
“Regional Australians are tired of high prices and we want to remind them that with our premium national network, they have a choice of plans with a stack of value adds,” said Marcus Grimes, Optus’ Head of Regional.
“With more than $6 billion invested into our mobile network in the last five years we are putting our money where our mouth is and asking consumers to give our network a shot.
Optus says that, in addition to receiving the first three months free on their plan fees on new selected mobile plans, eligible customers who take up selected 24 month mobile plans are covered by its ‘coverage commitment’ which gives them the opportunity to cancel their plan if they are experiencing coverage issues on the Optus network.
“It’s pretty easy to change over to Optus and with our 'Top Pick for Regional Coverage' badge, customers will knownetwork coverage what handset works best on our network in their town or region,” Grimes said.
