Telco Singtel Optus has launched an all-in-one home Internet package which it claims will satisfy the needs of a typical Australian home.

The Family Internet Plans include an Optus Ultra Wi-Fi modem and an Ultra Wi-Fi booster as well to ensure a strong wireless signal across a house.

The company said in a statement that the plan had been devised after research that it commissioned showed that more than half (54%) of those surveyed had experienced speed and/or reliability issues with their Internet connections; for families this was higher at 60%.

The new plan comes in two options, both of which are month to month: an introductory offer of $79/month and $99/month for the first 12 months of signing up.

Both plans include Optus Sport and a Fetch Mini set top box and allow customers to add any extras they need, including an NBN speed pack upgrade, a phone line or international calls.

The details:

Family Internet Ultimate – $79 per month for the first 12 months (normally $85 per month) Offer ends 4 April 2021, unless extended. Min cost $646

  • Base NBN speeds of 50/20 (45Mbps typical busy period download speed, 7-11pm)
  • Optus Ultra Wi-Fi Modem with 4G backup
  • Optus Ultra Wi-Fi Booster
  • Fetch Mini with three months free upgrade to 45+ channel Ultimate Pack (upgrade offer ends 31 March)
  • Optus Sport monthly subscription at no extra charge


Family Internet Ultimate 100 – $99 per month for the first 12 months (normally $105 per month) Offer ends 4 April. Minimum cost $666

  • Base NBN speeds of 100/20 (90Mbps typical busy period download speed, 7-11pm)
  • Optus Ultra Wi-Fi Modem with 4G back-up
  • Optus Ultra Wi-Fi Booster
  • Fetch Mini with three months free upgrade to 45+ channel Ultimate Pack (upgrade offer ends 31 March)
  • Optus Sport monthly subscription


Optus managing director of Marketing and Revenue, Matt Williams, said, “At Optus we are proud to be meeting the needs of Australian families with this all-in-one solution, being the first of its kind for the Australian market.

"The inclusion of the new Optus Ultra Wi-Fi Booster as part of our new Family Internet plans ensures families can get the most out of their home Internet service and stay connected to the things they love, from more parts of their home.

“We look forward to continuing to lead the way when it comes to our NBN offerings, currently holding the ACCC’s #1 rating for NBN average download speeds for the fifth quarter in a row.”
