No-one likes paying for something they don’t use, and mobile plans are no different; If you pay for a block of data, you expect to be able to use it. Optus has heard your feedback and from the 5th of July, they’re introducing new pre-paid mobile plans which will let you rollover data up to a maximum of 10GB.
Tim Cowan, Director of Mobile Marketing, Optus, said
Customers hate losing their data and that’s why Optus is launching data rollover, so customers can have what they paid for and use that data whenever they want.
The new plans start with a $30 plan which includes 1.5GB of data, but there’s also a $45 plan with 3.5GB of data and a $60 plan with 6GB of data. The plans allow you to rollover any unused data, but if you have a heavy month and use all your included and rolled over data, you can purchase extra data from $5 for an extra 500MB.
The new plans also includeu unlimited standard national calls and texts and an ‘Extras’ credit that gives you international calling.
All of this comes on the Optus 4G Plus network which has a fairly decent coverage, with up to 86% of Australia in range of an Optus 4G Plus network tower. Of course you should check the Optus coverage maps to check your area before signing up..
Optus has also begun a competition to encourage new signups. If you recharge or activate a SIM with $10 or more on Optus Prepaid and then SMS ‘NOVA’ to 2121 before the 15th of July and tell them who you’d like to see perform at the Nova Red Room Global Tour and why, you could score a seat.
