Optus Launches New Broadband/Phone-Only Plans

Optus has launched a new range of fixed broadband and phone landline plans that do not require the bundling of additional services. The new plans start at $55 and $22 per month respectively, with additional discounts for Optus Mobile customers.

Optus’ “naked” broadband plans start at $55 per month for 50GB of data (plus a $90 connection/delivery fee). You can also opt for $75, $85 and $100 plans which come with 120GB, 300GB and 500GB per month, respectively. This saves you between $10 and $40 per month compared to Optus’ equivalent bundled plans.

The phone-only plans, meanwhile, start at $22 a month for a minimum total spend of $528 over 24 months. Optus is also offering a $60 fixed phone plan which comes with unlimited standard national and mobile calls (minimum total cost is $1,440 over 24 months). A $45 plan rounds out the new offerings: it too comes with unlimited calls to local and national numbers but not mobile (with the exception of Optus Mobile customers).

If you have a post-paid Optus mobile on a $30 monthly plan or above, you can also get 10 per cent off the above plans each month.
