Netflix won’t be doing any more quota-free deals with Australian ISPs, but if you’re an Optus customer, today is the day that Netflix should stop counting against your cap.
Optus is boosting its mobile data allowance for new postpaid customers, including a generous 10GB per month on a $100 plan (up from 3GB). In addition, a new sharing option has been introduced that allows families to combine separate plans into one bill with data allowances shared across all devices. Optus has also added unlimited voice calls and text messages to all post-paid mobile plans. Here’s a look at what’s different.
Samsung’s Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge will be available outright in Australia in mid-April, but the outright purchase costs range from $999 to $1449. If that’s too steep and you’d prefer to buy one on a contract, we’ve rounded up every plan available for both phones in Australia from Optus, Telstra, Virgin Mobile and Vodafone so you can choose the one that’s right for your needs.
We already knew Optus was planning to offer unmetered access to Netflix (though there’s a minor catch there). Turns out Optus is also planning to offer six free months of the service to customers who sign up for new broadband or mobile contracts, or who renew an existing deal.
Remote Australians and Russel Coight wannabes take note: the Optus Thuraya SatSleeve satellite phone accessory is now available for the iPhone 6. The device enables you to turn your iPhone into a satellite phone with the click of a button; handy if you’re outside of mobile range and need to make a call in a hurry.
We’re pretty keen on Globalgig’s Roaming SIM card, which is one of the better-value offerings for travellers out there who want to dodge roaming rorts. Now it has an added attraction — an option to access 4G networks in Australia and the UK, which is actually one of the cheaper 4G data packages even if you never head overseas.
