While Optus Flex has been around a little while, the Optus prepaid offering hasn’t given its customers everything that its postpaid customers have enjoyed for a little while, and with this week’s announcement, the gap is closing.

From Monday, Optus Flex now supports 5G connectivity bringing a faster browsing and downloading experience to Flex customers.

For those unfamiliar with Optus Flex, it’s a prepaid offering that’s arguably one of the easiest to connect to. Forget wandering in store to find a SIM, if you have a compatible mobile you can sign up on your device with a simple in-app experience. That’s right – you can grab a new mobile number and service from the comfort of your home / office / bed / swimming pool with just a few clicks, and now you can enjoy 5G as well.

Optus is rather proud of its 5G network, claiming it’s Australia’s fastest 5G mobile network as awarded by Ookla. With VoLTE and WiFi-enabled calling, Optus Flex offers a lot of the features that a prepaid mobile user wants, and in fact, most of what a postpaid user wants too.

Optus Flex plans bring customers more of what they want, when they want and allows them to customise their plan to suit their needs, which includes purchasing add-ons, whether it be an Unlimited Data Day or international talk plan to stay close with family and friends overseas.

Customers have the choice to take up a daily, weekly, fortnightly, or monthly plan with access to 5G plans starting at just $2 a day. Best of all, if a customer does not max out their data, they won’t lose it, as up to 200GB of data will automatically roll over on an active plan.

Further information about the offer, and how to grab a 7-day free trial to see if the Optus 5G network is for you, is available on the Optus website.
