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.

    • How the hell are you gettin’ 500GB a month with Telstra for that price? The cheapest they offer bundled on a 24 month plan (only line rental included) is about 110 bucks, by itself it’s 120 bucks and it’s about 130 with unlimited national calls.. We pay 90 a month for 200GB with just line rental from them.

  • I’m paying $89 for 500gb on Telstra cable, 30mbps down 1mbps up. Couldn’t be bothered waiting for the nbn and ADSL is terrible in my area. No phone rental though.

  • Yet I’m on a 2 year old $65 120gb plan that includes line rental. And as a mobile customer I get an additional 25% off. So it equates to roughly $50. Seems these plans are getting more expensive over time.

    • Well they screwed me over one then, I had to reduce to 90GB a month just to be able
      to pay $75. That’s Optus for you. Reliable internet, poor customer service.

  • i miss my cable 🙁 had 30/1 and bought new house, now stuck on ADSL2 on overcrowded SHAM exchange with bigpond and lucky to see 10/1.

  • I signed up to their 300gb plan not that long ago, are you telling me if I have a mobile plan with optus (which I do) I’ll get a discount?

  • I got optus 500 gb cable with high speed 100 mbps speed, only $ 80 per month . but no phones included .
    Cable is reliable and is the best i reckon . 🙂
