Optus has this week announced that their $2 Days 3G Ready plan is going to be more expensive, bumping the plan up from $2 per day to $3 for unlimited everything on their 3G network.
The $2 Days 3G Ready plan has been around for some time, but as of August 26th the plan will now change from what used to cost on average $60 per month ($2 x 30 days) to around $90 per month ($3 x 30 days) – a 50% increase.
Optus is currently sending TXT messages out to customers advising them of the impending change, and has also released a blog post on the change.
The change is a big one for loyal Optus customers who have enjoyed unlimited data on 3G, with many users on Whirlpool looking to update their plans to 4G connections with a load of data – something that’s getting easier these days with most carriers now offering plans with unlimited data, albeit at slower speeds once your data cap is reached.
For any $2 Days 3G Ready plan users wanting refunds on existing MyCredit balance Optus is offering options. Any customer with existing credit who remains on the plan to August 26th will receive an additional credit of 50% of their balance based on the current balance on the 24th of August.
If you’re on the $2 Days 3G Ready plan with Optus then you can find all, or most of your questions answered in their blog about the change.
