Optus remote working offer due to coronavirus crisis

By

Optus has announced plans for supporting its customers to work remotely online due to the continuing spread of the coronavirus.

Australia second largest telco says it will support customers with additional data as businesses and schools across the country transition to working remotely.

The offering is for eligible postpaid mobile customers as a one-off add-on of 20GB of data during April 2020.

The plan will see eligible prepaid customers that recharge with $40 or more during April receiving 10GB of extra data, with each offer activated through the My Optus App.

Optus CEO designate Kelly Bayer Rosmarin said: “These are unprecedented times, and we want to help Australians who find themselves having to self-isolate or work from home to stay connected.”

“We understand how much it means to customers to stay connected with their colleagues, classmates, family and friends. Access to data is critical, so we are playing our part in helping the community with our additional data offer.”
