Seems like Optus is keen to scoop up some of the Aldi and Kogan customers who’ve been caught up in the ISPOne issues; Optus has released some deals aimed at attracting both Kogan and Aldi customers over to their network.
Starting from 5pm today, Optus was offering people who signed up to an Optus s Prepaid 4G Social plan would receive double the data and double the standard talk time in Australia on their first recharges of $40 or more. The offer will run until the 30th of September.
Ben White, Vice President of Marketing at Optus advised
“No one likes uncertainty with their mobile service and we feel for people who are currently worrying about it. We’re hoping to make things better by offering an easy way for you to come to Optus, keep your existing number and continue using your mobile service. We’re offering a service people can trust with clear and simple plans, and assurance about their network, with access to Optus 3G or superfast 4G.”
There’s a number of options available, to check out the Optus options head over to their website, or head into an Optus store for more details, most of your 3G and 4G phones will work on the Optus network, but speak to store staff to double check.
There will be a number of people looking for a new carrier tonight; although, with arrangements already in place with Telstra Direct, it seems Aldi Mobile customers are pretty secure. Kogan customers however will be doing some sums tonight to see what is the best deal around.
Kogan customers, have you decided where you will be going with your mobile service?
