Australian Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) OVO has today announced a new plan aimed at helping those with a poor broadband experience. The new plan offers 100GB of data for $100 per month on a 4G connection.
As with all OVO data-only plans, this new 100GB plan does not come with lock-in contracts, automatic top-ups or excess usage fees.
Powered by the Optus 4G Plus network, OVO offers a pretty decent option for users wanting to improve their broadband connection. There will of course be users in areas who aren’t suited, but OVO has setup a free geo-based speed test to check on the viability of switching to wireless broadband at notbloodynecessary.com.
OVO CEO, Matt Jones said of the new plans:
Up to now, the two things that were preventing mobile broadband being an attractive alternative to fixed were price and data allowances. With the introduction of our 100GB prepaid mobile data plan for $100 per 30 days, we’ve eliminated both of those problems.
The OVO data-only plan includes access to OVO’s bonus content OVOPlay which is exclusive content on a range of sports including World Superbikes, Gymnastics, Water Polo and 400 Thunder Drag Racing.
When you sign up, you also have the option to purchase a device to run your new 4G broadband SIM card in.
It’s a fairly competitive offer, especially for those in a good reception area with Optus. If you’re interested, head over to OVO Mobile and check it out now.
