Admins: Sorry if this should be in the forum.
Edit: Judging by the link posted by shole, I think this only applies to customers migrating from Optus cable.
I went onto the Optus web chat to switch from cable internet to NBN, and they offered me a couple of good deals:
- "If you sign up for new SIM plan or phone and plan with new number, I can offer 6 months free access on NBN from my end."
When I declined (work pays for my phone), they then said:
Optus Rep: But since I am offering 3 months free access from my end.
Optus Rep: Yes, 3 months free access on NBN.
You: Even without the SIM plan?
Optus Rep: Yes, correct
I'm not sure if this is only for people switching across from cable. I doubt it, I assume it's for all new NBN connections.
Also worth mentioning that if you're coming across to NBN they will waive the installation fee, even if you choose month-to-month.
