Mobile broadband is finally affordable for non-business types; especially if you live close to a major population centre. It’s now possible to score a 200GB plan – which is enough data to replace your home internet – for as little as $60 a month.

Here are two plans from Optus that are well worth considering.

The following Optus plans contain at least 200GB of data. To find out more about each plan, click on the interactive table below.

These new Optus home mobile broadband plans are special in that they’re genuinely designed to replace your home internet connection. You’ll get full 4G speeds (typically between 20Mbps and 100Mbps) and data allowances comparable to a fixed line service.

The modem is free if you sign a 24-month contract and is more robust than a 4G hotspot – it even has Ethernet ports – but it needs to plugged into the wall.

If you’re still waiting on the NBN (or connectivity sucks in your area), these plans will quench your thirst for faster internet.
