expired Optus 'yes' Fusion $109 Phone and Internet Bundle

60

Optus Fusion $109 gives you a 2 year contract, free wireless modem with 4 ethernet sockets, unlimited calls to local and national and all mobile phones (fair go) together with 500 Gb of broadband with no excess fee; service is speed limited to 256kbps after 500GB exceeded. Pretty sure it is a brand new deal from Optus, which was available last year but then stopped a few months ago.

    old news

    it was posted a while back
    there is a big post on WP


    I am on the 1TB plan with this as well as Speedpack
    So total is $114 for 1TB plan with 100mbits/s line speeds

    •  

      I am on the 1TB yes fusion plan too, but I am paying $129 and am no way close to the 100mbps speed you mentioned. My speed test shows only about 12-15mbps. What is this speedpack?

      • +1 vote

        speedpack you have to pay $15/$20 depending on when you started with optus(i.e. current or new customers)

        instead of the usual 18mbps speeds you can reach 100mbps

          thanks will check this out. possibly time for a speed pack.

        •  

          haha yeah

          with speedpack, i can d/l at around 5 mbytes p s, which easily uses up 1tb per month

        •  

          Too bad I can't get the speed pack as there isn't cable in WA…

      •  

        the speedpack is a lie!

        speed test show about 95Mbs (www.speedtest.net)
        however actual downloads show about 1MB (fine the server might not have the any more bandwidth)
        however when i download from other sites at the same time, my main download goes down by the new download amount!!!!
        I'm going to run some more tests, but if they show the same thing i'm getting rid of my 20 dollar per month speed pack as it does jack squat in real life!

        •  

          are you sure you are not confusing megabits with megabytes?

        •  

          still doesn't matter as i should be getting close to 9-10 MB down.

          i'm talking 1 MB - 10mbs

          however i know i have the speed pack because the speed tests show close to 95mbs.

          I believe optus have rigged it so the speed test is not limited and is high priority. (it runs off optus servers)

          when downloading from steam australia you can see it settles at about 1MB, then if you download other stuff at the same time, the 1MB from steam lowers.

          so either the network is stupidly congested and i'm not getting the 80mbs promised

          (PS i'm an IT manager, so do at least have a little knowledge ;) )

          @ wisc

          Look Here

          Some people are having the same problem as you, might want to check it out

          Possible Causes

          Congestion
          The Doscis 3.0 Modem(DPQ3295 or DPQ3212)

        •  

          thanks, any thread in particular?

          think i got one of the Doscis modems, (cisco one)

        •  

          yep

          Cisco DPQ3925 Issue
          International Traffic Congestion
          OPtus Premium Speed Pack Speed Test

          i had issues with my service as well around Dec 2010-Jan 2011
          Problems were of my modem DPQ3925(this modem has many issues), so i opted for the DPQ3212 and bought a router for it, now it is all fine

      I've got the fusion 1TB with speedpack too for 119p/m. Got the Fusion $129 plan for $99/mo when the deal was on last year ($10p/m better than this current offer) and added casual speedpack for $20p/m.

      I mostly got the speedpack for the upload speeds, I found 400k up was a bit crap. Of course you have to upgrade both, so upload is now around 1.5Mbps, but download is immense. Often pulling a continuous 7MB/s from newsgroups. Your mileage may vary.

    I did search but did not find. This just came out. The $129 1Tb fusion plan with a $30 credit, making it $99, was stopped a few months ago.

    •  

      didn't move to forums though

      Here is link

      also it is their normal price, had it since December 2010

      •  

        I am pretty sure those plans finished in December. I looked at the Optus website last week and you could only get unlimited mobile calls for $129.

        •  

          for $129.

          you sure you are not on about the 1TB

          Here is a simple breakdown
          $99 Fusion Plan gets you: Unlimited calls and 500gb
          $109 Fusion Plan gets you: Unlimited calls AND cheaper international rates and 500gb
          $129 Fusion PLan gets you: Unlimited calls AND cheaper international rates and 100GB

        •  

          issh - the advantage with this NEW plan is that it gives you unlimited mobile calls to all carriers for $109. You could get it last year for $99 (with an additional 500Gb) but it was stopped in December, since then unlimited mobiles cost $129. If you can go through 500Gb per month then you are a good man Gunga Din.

    Also no connection fee for the month of April haha

  •  

    Includes 13/1300 numbers too.

  •  

    Not really a a good new deal.
    I'm on $99 a month for 1Tb data, line rental and unlimited landline/mobile/voicemail calls. They had that offer when the new Fusion plans were announced around the start of December last year.

    •  

      Also the modem they provide is a total piece of s$$$. I keep having to go into the admin panel and reset the router every time I have more than a couple downloads going at once. If you use torrents or any kind of download manager, BYO modem and router.

      •  

        If under warranty maybe try to get a new one. Mine has never died. If not under warranty you can just unplug power plug into modem for a couple of seconds, which I have done twice in 6 months when the phone dies.

        +1 to this

        instead of the DPQ2935 modem

        get the DPQ3212 modem

    •  

      $99 a month for 1Tb data, line rental and unlimited landline/mobile/voicemail c

      same here

      pretty sure its no difference to this

      •  

        This ine is $10 more and only 500Gb. Pretty sure there were also differences to what calls were free.

  •  

    Yes BUT YOU COULDN'T GET IT SINCE THEN. I have to go mow the lawn. Whatever. Best and simplest phone/internet deal in town.

    Can you please include in the description what the throttled/haped speed is after users hit 500GB for the month?

    Question: Does Optus consider a Gigabyte as 1000MB or 1024MB?

    •

      shaped to 256kbps ( i think)

      Question: Does Optus consider a Gigabyte as 1000MB or 1024MB?

      1000 (same as other telcos)

      •  

        Yea definately 1000, on the myusage meter is says 'Plan Allowance: 1000000 MB'

      •  

        FYI, just had a chat with an Optus rep (Daniel) regarding how they classify a Gigabyte:

        You: Just looking at the Yes Fusion $109 deal

        You: and wondering what the reason is why 1GB is determined as being 1000MB and not 1024MB?

        You: Technically, a gigabyte is 1024MB, not 1000MB

        Daniel: That's right,

        Daniel: Optus counts 1024 MB as 1000MB just to clear the total data customers get.

        You: I dont understand what you mean by that……what do you mean when you say "just to clear the total data consumer gets"? On this page http://personal.optus.com.au/web/ocaportal.portal?_nfpb=true... it says 1000MB = 1GB…..if this was the case that Optus calculates 1GB as 1024MB then it should say that on this page. Its misleading information

        Daniel: Generally, if you conclude 1024MB data, it will be considered as 1000MB and will be considered as 1GB data.

        You: So it will only be considered as 1GB used when a user uses 1024MB and not when they use 1000MB, is that correct?

        Daniel: That's right.

          haha, this conversation makes me laugh

    •  

      just like hard drives, the same answer to the question about how hard drive manufacturers measure the capacity of their HDDs-1000 bytes to the KB, 1000KB to the MB, 1000MB to the GB, 1000GB to the TB etc
