If you’re on the lookout for a new BYO mobile plan, you should get your derriere to Optus asap – for a (very) limited time, the telco is doubling the data on all SIM only plans. This means you can score up to 80GB of mobile data every month without paying through the nose. Here are the details!

Optus’ double-data deal is one of the best we’ve seen from any telco in a long while. It’s available to new and re-contracting customers only and has a minimum 12-month contract attached.

The offer ends on 8 July, but once you sign up the data will remain for the duration of your plan. You can see the full list of plans below. Click on each deal for a full breakdown of inclusions.

For our money, the $45 plan is probably the best value – if only for the optics of spending under $50 a month. Data hogs with deep pockets might also want to consider the $65 plan which comes with a frankly ridiculous data allowance of 80GB. All plans also come with unlimited calls and texts.
