Customers of Optus’ mobile virtual network operators (MVNO) will have the option to access new mobile services in minutes rather than days.
A simple QR code will make it easier for both postpaid and prepaid customers of MVNO partners around Australia to gain access to Optus’ 4G and 5G network in a more sustainable and streamlined way.
“Now, customers of our wholesale partners will have a simple new way of connecting without needing to acquire a physical SIM card,” says Optus managing director of wholesale, satellite, and strategy Ben White.
“eSIMs allow customers the option to have two numbers on one device, potentially eliminating the need to carry around both a work phone and a personal phone. It also provides more Australians with new ways to make more sustainable, environmentally friendly changes to their everyday lives.”
The latest SIM card evolution will have customers begin their journey by scanning a QR code to activate the eSIM. The provision of eSIMs for wholesale customers is consistent with Optus’ ethos to provide its MVNO partners the latest technologies available.
