Aussie Broadband’s new mobile offering, with 5G, much more data and 2 months free Featured


Earlier this year, Aussie Broadband switched to Optus for its mobile service, and now it has launched 5G plans, a near doubling of data, and for a limited time, a two month free of the Optus network, all in service of giving customers more bang for their buck.

Buckle up kids, the "bloody good" telco Aussie Broadband has just opened up an upgraded version its mobile plan offering, which not only includes a significant revamp of its mobile services, but also the introduction of Samsung S21 smartphones expected to be released later this month.

The news follows Aussie’s recent decision to switch mobile network supplier from Telstra to Optus Wholesale.

Matthew Kusi-Appauh, the GM of Marketing and Corporate Strategy, said customers who bundle their internet and mobile plans can get even better value for money.

Kusi-Appauh added: “We’re very excited to launch our new mobile plans on the Optus network today and to introduce completely new 5G plans for the first time. “We believe in giving our customers more bang for their buck – so we’re offering increased data to customers who subscribe to both our internet (NBN or OptiComm) and mobile services.”

The telco said it is also offering “new and existing customers a 2 months free trial of the Optus network - for a limited time only.”

Around 20,000 existing mobile customers are expected to migrate onto the Optus network by October 2021.

“One of the key components is that we’re going to be able to bring lots more features to customers. For example, the price of data will be far more competitive.

“We’ve effectively almost doubled the data on most of our plans. Data sharing and WiFi calling will also be available for free on all 4G plans,” Kusi-Appauh continued.

So, what else is new?

New bundled plans

We’re told the $29 plans “now include an additional 15GB, bringing the total to 25GB. Aussie is offering a new 100GB of data for only $69 per month, which offers an additional 20GB of data for the same price. All plans come with no lock-in contracts, which means customers are free to cancel at any time without penalty fees.”

Under the new Optus deal, Aussie customers will be given full access to the Optus 4G and 5G networks to provide voice and mobile data, with the Optus wholesale network 4G coverage reaching 98.5% of the Australian population.

The company also plans to offer 4G internet backup for both residential and business customers in the next few months.

New 5G plans and handsets

Prices for the 5G plans start at $39 per month for 10GB of data, rising to $69 per month for 80GB. Aussie is also launching a range of new devices later this month, including the new Samsung Galaxy S21 series. The devices will be available upfront or bundled with the customers’ mobile services.
