If you missed out on Optus’ phenomenal 24-hour ‘Click Frenzy’ deal, we’ve got some great news – the telco has quietly resurrected the offer for another week. To the uninitiated, that’s a massive 20% off 80GB plans, bringing the total to just $40 per month. Here are the details!

Optus’ 20% discount on $50 SIM-only plans nets you a generous 80GB of data, unlimited talk/text, a free Optus Sport subscription and data-free music streaming through Spotify and Google Play Music – all for $40 a month.

The plan also comes with 4GB of monthly roaming data which can be used in “Zone 1” countries. (This includes most Asian Pacific, European and North American nations.)

Here are the full inclusions – click on our interactive table below to learn more.

Note that the $40 offer is only available on a 12-month contract. So if you like to hop between plans from different telcos, this is something to bear in mind.

This is essentially the same deal Optus ran during Click Frenzy – and it remains every bit as good. Provided you live in an area with decent Optus coverage, you’d be hard pressed to find a better data allowance at this price point.

Here’s how the plan compares to similar offerings on the market:

Optus is running this plan until June 6 – which means you have a little over one week to sign up. Click here!
