Optus has completed its purchase of amaysim’s mobile business with its 1.2 million subscribers for $250 million.
Telco Singtel Optus will acquire Australia's biggest mobile virtual network operator, having signed a deal to buy amaysim for $250 million, the company says, adding that it will also be launching a new digital brand gomo which is aimed at providing simple plans and budget-friendly services.
Australian telco and broadcaster OVO is using a cloud-based platform from global business optimisation platform provider Domo to integrate data from two different lines of business in a move it says is designed to help grow the business to 70,000 mobile customers and two million audience members across 150 countries.
One of Australia's best pre-paid phone providers or MVNOs is OVO, and with its latest automatic mobile data increase limits should definitely receive a sustained and enthusiastic show of appreciation from its current and future customers.
With OVO's data allowances at least doubling across most plans during 2018, its provocation of fellow mobile and data players to capture cunning customers has reached its highest count yet.
They don't call it goodminton, but OVO getting badminton rights for its OVOPlay streaming service is no bad thing at all.
COMMENT Vodafone has the cheapest unlimited mobile data plan in Australia, offering a set amount of high-speed gigabytes, then capping to 1.5Mbps, but who will be first to do better?
OVO's provocation of competitors to better compete and consumers to switch over (or is that Ovo?) continues with its latest content deal: a digital broadcasting deal with the Brumbies.
OVO says it is "doubling down on its capped prepaid mobile data plans, opting to increase the full-speed data allowance on its larger plans as opposed to offering lower-speed unlimited mobile plans".
Promising to be "more than just a phone service" thanks to an emphasis on community engagement and giving back, LYF Mobile still promises fast speeds, affordable prices, online simplicity and a millennial focus - is it time to Choose Lyf?
OVO has a new CMOVO: former marketing director at Pandora, eHarmony and WooliesX, Nicole McInnes, is the media telco's first chief marketing officer.
OVO Mobile is offering special deals to attract customers to its plans, including a dedicated range of data-free sport, entertainment and radio, with half-off for the first three months.
The NBN has been derided by OVO in the past as "Not Bloody Necessary", and while mobile networks need to evolve to 5G first to truly compete, OVO Mobile's 150GB plan for $89.95 is ready for you now.
OVO Mobile, the MVNO that says it is "reinventing the traditional telecommunications model" with an innovative data-free content platform, expects 1 million 18-25 y/o Australians to flock to its new esports channel.
Despite a plethora of entertainment options in various telco smartphone plans, MVNO OVO has won an industry award for "Best Plans in Entertainment" – again.
Competition is strong in the MVNO space, with Kogan Mobile an especially competitive rival to all, but with innovative inclusions able to make one network more valuable than the other on more than just price, customers in the know are always the beneficiaries.
Entertainment media company Southern Cross Austereo has strategically invested $5 million in media-MVNO OVO Mobile and its "rapidly expanding" OVOPlay streaming media platform, as OVO has renewed an exclusive five-year Optus mobile deal.
MVNOs have been successful on price, value and growth, but even as major telcos fight back with contracts to buy iPhone X, Note 8 and others, the threat of TPG's upcoming new network means continued growth will need true innovation and value, and not price alone.
Optus-powered MVNO OVO has secured a second distribution deal with a partnership to offer its products in Australia Post outlets across the country.
Optus-powered MVNO OVO, which famously offers 100GB for $69.95 per 30 days, as well as great unlimited voice and text plans with data allocations, now has national 7-Eleven distribution.
