OVO 250GB XXL Mobile Broadband $79.95/30 Days (Was $99.95)

110

Been looking for a 200Gb+ plan for mum, and came across this.

"Enjoy 250 GB mobile broadband data with no contract and no fixed line."

Uses Optus 4G network, and uncapped.

Recent deal was $20 extra

Chat said no expiry in near future.

Still hanging on for an Optus deal for around the $60p/m for 200GB and a tablet :) but may succumb to this especially being no contract.

    Can vouch for this service, have been very happy for the past few months. Have been mainly using for Netflix. Note that they also now have a 500GB/month plan for $109.95.

      How much do you use Netflix, and how much data do you think you use in a month? Looking at doing this, have been on NBN unlimited before so not sure how much data I use.

        We watch a lot of Netflix, Prime etc. and use approximately 200GB of data a month but will also be dependent on your playback quality settings (SD, HD, Ultra HD/4K), for reference we use HD playback for Netflix.

      Any recent speed tests (especially during the peak evening period)? TIA

    Probably good to have no contract in case needs change. That said if you were ok with 24month commitment would a phone plan with 200GB be better value? Flog the phone and have call costs covered as well?

    Optus itself has 500GB with 80$/month. Spintel (also Optus network) 39.95$/month for 250GB. These are mobile broadbank so no calls etc.

      How do you get the plans month by month without modem?

      Spintel is a 'throttled' service so not a like for like comparison. It's basically ADSL speeds.

      As per the CIS:

      Whilst the Wireless Broadband 4G service uses the Optus 4G Plus network, it is designed to be used in the home and its data speeds are different to mobile and mobile broadband speeds on the 4G network.
      In metropolitan areas where there is 2300 MHz coverage at your nominated address, download and upload speeds of up to 12/1 Mbps are available.
      If 2300 MHz coverage is not available at your nominated address, download and upload speeds of up to 5/1 Mbps are available

      You need to go directly with Optus if you want full network speeds.

      •  

        The OVO chat said it was uncapped, I assumed that meant I get full speeds. Is that incorrect? That would make a big difference to me

          The post I was replying to talked about Spintel's home wireless broadband service, so that's what I was referring to.

          Simply put, if you want wireless broadband at home (or fixed locations), go with Optus. You'll get good prices, uncapped speeds and a home WiFi modem.

          If you want mobile broadband on the go (e.g. on a train), OVO is fine. It's more expensive but you get improved mobility.

      They've also announced the whole optus $70 for unlimited 5g rolling out, which has a 4g fallback. I'm waiting for this to launch so I can replace my 4g setup.

    This new pricing from Ovo puts them firmly as the best deal on mobile broadband without lock-in contracts.

    You can also stream anything they have on Ovo Play without using your data allowance.

    Recently purchased the Optus 4g mobile broadband. $80/month and 500gb. Getting speeds up to 150mb/s on a good day.

    Technically a 24 month contract but you can opt out at any time and just pay the residual cost remaining on the modem.

    So much better than my ADSL2 which is the only home option for me at the moment.

  •  

    So with the Ovo 250 gb mobile data plan can you stick the sim in a spare 4g phone and just hotspot from that.

  •  

    So I'm about to sign up for this and using Cashrewards ($15). Then when I fill in the sign up form, there is a space for a referral code. Problem is the referral links in Ozbargain I can't work out what the code to put in? If anyone wants to PM me their referral I'm happy to use theirs.

  •  

    So I should get the exact speed on this as my Optus mobile broadband 200gb plan?
