optus

If you’re a consumer of mobile broadband, whether with Optus or another carrier, this prepaid option from Optus is worth considering. Until 5 February 2017, you can get double data on every recharge over $30, giving you up to a whopping 44GB for just $130 (or about $2.95 per GB).

As you can see in the table below, there’s a range of options available, and you can order online or in-store to take advantage. If you’re looking for a SIM to stick in your USB internet stick or battery-powered hotspot, $130 for 44GB of data is amazing value, and with two years expiry, you needn’t worry about recharging for quite some time (depending on how heavily you use your data):

Recharge Amounts $10 $30 $50 $130
Included Data
(Double data until 05/02/17)
1GB 8GB
4GB + 4GB
14GB
7GB + 7GB

(22GB + 22GB)
Data Rollover Roll over your unused data up to 50GB when you recharge before expiry
Noting any data over 50GB will be forfeit
Expiry 1 week 1 month 1 year 2 years

How do Optus’ new prepaid broadband options strike you? Do you use Optus for your mobile broadband needs, or are you now tempted to switch?
