Thursday , September 20 2018 Ausdroid » Optus offering deals for customers left out in the cold by ISPOne demise

Optus - KoganAldi
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?

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Optus are the vultures circling overhead of the folks who’ve just been hung out to dry by the incompetent directors of ISSN one.

Pretty simple Optus.
People liked the Kogan plan for the GBs.
You’ve got to at least permanently double (more seriously, TRIPLE) what you are offering in those plans.

Both Optus and Telstra are horribly miserly with their data offerings. That’s why people go for the Kogan and so forth. If you don’t want your customers taken away, give them what they need at an affordable price.

I’ll most likely be hopping over to Aldi. I can’t go back to an Optus based service again after experiencing Telstra based reception.

I am wondering about Telstra and Aldi mobile? Will Aldi mobile can get effected soon???

Maybe, but definitely not soon. Aldi are dealing directly with Telstra, rather than going through an intermediary like ISPOne.

Aldi is also using Medion as intermediary? Don’t they?

I hear whispers that Aldi will indefinitely deal directly with Telstra from here on and Telstra will also be opening the Next G gates to Aldi customers. Prices may increase by a little though. In all honesty, as I’ve said before, I’d be more then willing to pay a little more for the Aldi unlimited pack.

If that is true, then this was a murder plot aimed directly at Kogan.
Telstra realised that it opened the gates to cheap plans that undercut them and took customers away, and have now fixed that mistake.

You might be on a winner.
