Optus’ ‘Yes’ campaign has led them to including a few good deals for customers, bettering their service, coverage and now, options for their international customers. Optus has today advised that they have upgraded their postpaid mobile plans for new customers signing up to the My Plan Plus 24 to include international calls, SMS and MMS.

With around 620,000 Optus postpaid customers already making calls or sending text to other countries, Optus has advised that customers who sign up to My Plan Plus plans will now receive up to 300 minutes of talk time each month, as well as unlimited SMS to any one of 32 countries. Optus has looked at the countries their customers are calling and texting the most and included them in the list :

Austria, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Canada, Chile, China, Croatia, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, Indonesia, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Pakistan, Philippines, Poland, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States and Vietnam.

While the text and data will remain for the life of the plan, it’s only being offered to new sign-ups who take advantage of the offer between the 2nd of February and 31st of May 2015, If you’re an existing Optus customer and want to take advantage of the inclusions, you can contact Optus about changing your plan within this window.

Ben White, Vice President of Mobile Marketing, Optus, said

While apps have made it easier to chat to people overseas, it can often be frustrating arranging times. Others prefer international calling cards which need to be purchased in advance and may not offer the best rates. We know it’s more convenient to just call when you want from your mobile, regardless of what country you’re calling. Everyone enjoys hearing from their loved ones overseas, so Optus is making it cheaper and easier to call anytime, anywhere.

For more information on the plans check out the Optus website.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

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.
