Optus launches NBN plans ahead of ‘new customer initiatives’


Optus has launched three new NBN plans promising more speed for selected home users, and with unlimited data for “data hungry” streamers.

Optus’ new offerings include two new NBN broadband bundle plans which includes a phone line at no extra charge for $85/mth and $99/mth and a broadband only plan for $85/mth.

The plans have unlimited data on Optus’ Speed Pack 3, which Optus says delivers 40Mbps typical evening speed (7-11pm) across its new NBN plans.

Optus head of Product, Shawn Van Graan, said, “We are unveiling our new NBN plans, offering customers fast NBN speeds, with some great features that are perfect for families and data-hungry streamers.

“As part of these plans, customers will receive an Optus Sport subscription and those who sign up to the $99/mth bundle plan (Min total cost $2475) will also receive a Fetch Mighty set top box and one premium channel pack. All standard, local and national calls, plus calls to Australian mobiles will be included as part of our two broadband bundle plans.”

“The three new plans will offer customers the option to sign up to a month to month contract, giving them the peace of mind to leave their plan at any time if they are not satisfied with the speed or service.

“These plans will be enhanced by some exciting new Optus NBN customer service initiatives, which ensure customers experience a smooth transition to the NBN. We will be announcing these details soon."
