Unlimited broadband offerings aren’t so common these days. If you’re a download freak and happen to live in one of the areas in Sydney, Brisbane or Melbourne where Optus offers cable internet, its new $90 a month deal might be worth considering.
For that $90, you’ll score unlimited data (downloads and uploads), unlimited calls to Australian mobile and landline numbers, and free calls to a number of overseas destinations. You’ll also get the basic Fetch TV bundle.
The downsides? You have to sign up for a 24-month contract, and it only works if you’re in a coverage area for HFC. But hey, since anyone who is in an area with HFC isn’t likely to get anything else from the NBN, it might be time to look into it. The plan is on sale until 5 February 2015.
