    Setup Fee is $200

    lol

  •  

    What is this $20 monthly discount that you are talking about? I never got this discount although i have a mobile phone plan as well as home broadband with optus

  •  

    Where does it say you can get $20 off with elegible mobile plan?

  •  

    The $20 monthly discount applied to grandfathered plans and does not apply to these current plans.

      OzB has some sort of issue with Optus atm and won't allow any "negotiated deal", but existing Optus customers will get this if they ask for it, just make sure you reference the ACCC mandated apology statement.

      •  

        I have just confirmed via Optus chat that this discount does not apply to current NBN plans. I'd like to be proven wrong.

          You have been proven wrong.
          I was told the same on Optus chat and I asked them to re-contract me on the new plan. Knowing that the new contracts are No Lock-in contracts the lady took a while and finally added it to my account as a "Once Off" offer. Pack update takes 4 hours to take effect.
          They cant afford to let contracted people move to no lock-in contracts.
          Cheers,

  •  

    I just signed up for nbn and fetch TV with 1 channel pack with optus today. I already have a mobile contract with them and was offered only 10% discount on the mobile plan (3 bucks per month). Please can you clarify this deal clearly so I can call and ask for the same deal?

    TIA

  •  

    I just had a chat with the customer care and they upgraded my plan to the NBN 50 plan from 25 plan for 6 months.
    I had contracted with them 3 months back.
    Thanks OP.

  •  

    oxymoron: "dial-up deal"

  •  

    Aren't there a lot of issues with NBN?

    •  

      Depends who your with. I'm with Aussie broadband on NBN for 5 months and never had an issue. Not sure if its the ISP or just location. But then you hear heaps of horror stories from other ISP in other locations.

      •  

        It's all about location, then a little bit ISP. Having majority of my family in central locations in various cities, there is a 100% strike rate against NBN, especially evening speeds….

    •  

      Tbh, I'm not sure if there are issues with NBN or just TPG. Funny how all the problems started when I switched though.

    •  

      HFC is on hold for the moment due to major activation issues.

      •  

        Caused by a decaying physical network though. I do feel like a big chunk of it will be canned and FTTC will take over the worst Telstra HFC areas.

        •  

          How does FTTC compare to the other MTN?

        •  

          @lostn: Probably better than everything but FTTP.

          If the network specs are right, it should deliver 100/40 to basically every premises and (guesswork here) should be the cheapest option to upgrade to FTTP.

        •  

          @XeKToReX: Will they be upgrading existing HFC connections to FTTC, or only the ones not yet installed but were originally meant to get HFC?

          And will it actually improve speeds if there are a lot of leechers in your area and the RSP did not upgrade CVC capacity?

        •  

          @lostn:

          Again, just guesswork, but I wouldn't be surprised if they canned further rollouts of HFC outside of areas that weren't already RFS or in the process.

          Who knows though!

        •  

          @XeKToReX: You used a lot of negatives in that sentence and now my head hurts. :(

        • +1 vote

          @lostn: Haha, true that.

          Basically, I get the feeling that nbn will stop making the HFC footprint any bigger once they end the sale pause.

    Link doesn't take me anywhere and I cant seem to find these plans on the optus website. any help?

    Looking for NBN for my elderly parents so just hunting around atm. Was going to go with Aussie Broadband but they just changed their plans for the worse… so was checking out this deal to see how it compares… but I cant seem to work out how this one actually works…I have an optus sim only plan.. but not a current optus NBN customer… can't see how I can get the deals outlined above… am I missing something? (oh and thanks the link now works but still only takes me to deals of $60 and $80 with the $80 having the Fetch pack!!… and cant find the $40 NBN 12 plan anywhere!

    Optus is complete junk. they will screw up every bit they could screw up. happened to me and it was horrible. Complained to TIO to get out. Never trust them again.

    •  

      I have been with Optus for Mobile, Broadband and home phone for 12 years in this location and a decade before that elsewhere and the only issue was getting the Telstra contractor to turn up for installation and then for a line repair. I guess I have been lucky or you were unlucky. Just about to get the NBN here so I hope I can get this deal when it finally arrives.

      •  

        I was fine with them when it was still cable internet, only 2 bills by mistake. However, not the same at NBN time.

        •  

          That is worrying. It's hard to make the switch when you have had a good run and we do use the Fetch TV as well.

    •  

      Agreed, was with Internode for 4 years and decided to switch to Optus to save a little bit of cash. BIG mistake.

      Constant hassle every month where they limit my speeds from 12Mbps to 6Mbps. Constantly have to call them to rectify, going through the same BS of: Can you turn your modem off and on, can you use a LAN cable, can you restart your PC, when I tell them to just look up the previous call I made 4 weeks ago to resolve the issue.

      I'm now at a stage where they refuse to remove the throttling and are blaming my lines for the issue and I have to pay someone out of my own pocket to have the lines in our house checked despite the house only being 6 years old. Funny that they could speed up my internet after tons of back and forth on 10+ earlier instances. Yet now they refuse to help because I'm not paying someone to check the lines of a 6 year old house.

      Same house, different ISP, yet they can only give me half the speed what Internode gave me reliably for 4 years prior.

      Oh yeah, I have an awesome Router/Modem that I cannot use with Optus because they do not support it so I'm stuck with their crappy chinese no name Dual band router where the 5GHz channel literally only works when you're 2 meters or closer to the router. I've had the router replaced 3 times now and it's still an issue, so now I've given up on that.

      I've lodged a complaint with the TIO, Optus was given 3 weeks to respond (last day to respond is tomorrow) and I have yet to hear from them.

      Absolutely worst ISP I have ever used, their Indian customer service are hopeless and they constantly lie. For example, I was promised I could switch providers due to constant issues and they would waive the early cancellation fee. When I called back to cancel with them after agreeing to sign back up with Internode, they told me they never promised such thing and have conveniently no record of that call. I have since installed a call recording app on my phone just because of them.

      Hopefully TIO gives me the OK to leave this sorry excuse of an ISP ASAP. Despite not having any issues with my Optus mobile contract, I am leaving that as well at the earliest opportunity and will never use Optus again for the rest of my life. I've been with TPG, Telstra and Exetel (plus Internode) in the past and Optus are by far the worst ISP I've used.

      STAY AWAY FROM OPTUS, you have been warned.

        You sound like an internode/iinet customer. With your needs and
        tendency to complain to the TIO, I’m not sure why you would try to save a few dollars with Optus. Optus caters for the general public that wont look at whether they are getting 6mbps vs 12mbps and won’t mind it.

        •  

          Oh I'm sorry that having my internet throttled every 4 weeks makes me needy when I had flawless internet for 4 years prior at the same house. How dare I complain!

          I changed because Optus offered unlimited Data and Internodes data allowance just wasn't enough for me anymore. I switched when TPG took over IInet/Internode and the customer service started going downhill.

          How dare I expect consistent internet at the same residence when all I did was change provider. Shame on me.

        •  

          @sm3004:
          Is your current Optus internet plan has a data quota?
          I thought all current Optus internet plans have unlimited data unless you are on a grandfathered plan.

        •  

          @Joe888: I switched because Optus offered unlimited data, my plan is unlimited data. But it's a pain when i can only get 4-500kbps down. Used to get a steady 1.2Mbps for years.

    •  

      Oh yeah, to add to that, I called them to cancel my paper billing since their online tool to do it myself does not work at all. I requested this so I can save $2.20/month since i have no need for paper mail, yet they can not do this! I had to call them 6 times back and forth for this and they are literally not capable to take me off of paper billing for some reason. Seriously, it's not rocket science, it's the most basic of requests yet they can not do it and they can't explain why, so I've given up on that too.

      Avoid FLOPTUS like the plague.

  •  

    Unless you want Fetch better off going with Telecube. 1TB/Unlimited, 100/40, $69/month, no contract, $49 set up.

  •  

    for what its worth, Optus cannot sell HFC NBN connections at present due to the Stop Sell initiated by NBNco

    •  

      No RSPs can do 'new' HFC NBN connections due to the freeze - however if you currently have an active NBN HFC connection (ie, activated and in use before the freeze) you're able to continue to move between RSPs as per normal as far as I know.

  •  

    I'm so tempted by this, I'm currently with AussieBroadband with NBN 100Mbps/40Mbps 500GB ($80 a month). So basically I'll get the same plan with Optus plus the Fetch TV Mighty and 1 free channel pack. I noticed the typical peak speed is lower with Optus (60mps vs 78mps) though. Should I do it guys?

    •  

      I'm in the same boat too, but the $200 fee is the deal breaker. Thinking to get an apple tv 4 to watch Optus EPL instead and stay with ABB for reliability.

      •  

        You'll also get 10% discount on your mobile making it an extra 4x12= $48 in my case. Discovery channel is also very tempting though :(

  •  
    1. If you are on FTTN, you need to check if you can even get 50Mbps
    2. nbn are pushing with RSPs a 50Mbps package with some CVC. This pits 50Mbps and 25Mbps at the same price. Expect deals from others also
  •  

    Got scared by the buzz about Buzz (too late anyhow), so this NBN12 $40/mth seems to be the cheapest deal around. (I think student discounts are only for mobile plans with Optus.)

    I don't think I need more than 50GB/mth realistically (but you never know what happens when the password gets spread around). My other option is the Kogan Extra large 23GB mobile plan which works out to be around $26.26/mth.

    Skymesh NBN12 has $34.95 for 10GB anytime and 40GB off-peak times.

  •  

    Is this still valid? When I spoke to Optus on Live Chat they said the $20 combined service discount no longer applies to the new plans?

    •  

      Pls refer to my comments above.
      On the contrary, @thebargainhunter (OP) & @Bippz01 should be able to advise you how to obtain this $20 discount.

  •  

    @thebargainhunter & @Bippz01 - I am currently locked in contract FetchTV Mighty with 1 Channel Pack, PAYG Calls - $80/m and it is "NBN25" plan. However, I also have two $87pm mobile phone contracts with them.

    I understand from your post and above comments, that it is possible to get all this bundle at $80 with NBN100 (in place of NNB25 that I have) using $20 discount.

    However, I could not find any reference to $20 about having eligible mobile plan discount. What shall I tell Optus, give me NBN100 plan for $80 because ACCC apology statement, and I do have mobile contacts with Optus?

    Please help

  •  

    Optus have now updated their nbn plans. New customers can get speed pack 3 (50mbps) for the life of their contract on the $80 plan.

  •  

    How is the included router? I am currently using a Telstra Gateway Max.
