    Can share/pool data with family member?

  • +2 votes

    Could I use this as home internet via some sort of modem/router?

    •  

      yes ….easiest is usb wireless modem and just leave plugged into a usb charger if you have small home physical footprint.

      it’s faster and better coverage than some data only sims which don’t give you access to all the bands eg no access to band 28.

      •  

        Is this better than compared to using your phone as a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot? Also what USB wireless do you recommend? I see that the Huawei wireless usb modems are a popular choice on eBay.

          Prob shouldn't have any issues with wifi hotspotting your phone, just a matter of coverage.

          My own setup is a Huawei B525 plugged into a good home router (tplink ac5400),

          My old outdated Wifi Card in my computer at this point is a bottleneck, the Huawei B525 itself may be another bottleneck being Cat 6 LTE whereas a Note 9 is considered a Cat 18 LTE.

          Note 9 as a USB modem data share gets me 25-26 MB/s (200-208 mbits) downloading crap on steam, at home, close to midnight vs the 10 MB/s via my wifi card to the router > Huawei B525 - Forgot what I usually get on speedtests at home, right now however its ~30-40 megabits in Box Hill which would be fairly saturated with people/etc.

          The 4G modem in phones are by far quicker than anything available in terms of 4G modems (except something like the HTC 5G hub/modem)

          I think if I could redo my setup ; purchase an ASUS router as these have native usb tethering or a router with dd-wrt/open-wrt that supports usb tethering and leave an older phone tethered to it.

        Interesting, been wanting to disconnect my adsl and use wireless instead.

        Out of curiosity, why would one sign up for data only sim plan if the data+voice sim plan works out cheaper (data-wise)?

        •  

          If you look at their mobile broadband, you can get 500gb per month for around $85 per month (or $65 for 200gb) with the Optus ac800s modem included, so it is better value if you go for the data only mobile broadband (only if you get the modem, it's expensive without it). I recommend the ac800s modem, I get 240mbps off peak and 120mbps during peak and I've got it docked into an aircraft smart cradle for the 4 gigabit Ethernet ports. The ac800s has a better modem than the Huawei on the same plan (450mbps top speed vs 150mbps). I don't plan on going NBN. Keep in mind that these new mobile broadband plans don't data pool anymore

          Connection is quite stable too, no dropouts with hours of non stop gaming on destiny 2 and division 2, and with three of us on the same connection we've managed to get over 40 kills between us in fortnite 20v20 matches.

  •  

    That 4gb of roaming data. Is that per day, or per trip or per the life of the plan?

  •  

    Really want to switch to this but I'm on the $55 plan (discounted to $41.25 per month), from january this year. Can't get a straight answer out of anyone from Optus as to whether they'll try to slug me with early termination fees as even though I'd be paying more per month than I currently do, the plan is technically a downgrade ($50 plan down from $55).

    • +2 votes

      if you're ultimately paying more, I'm sure they'd accommodate it

      Optus don't consider it an upgrade for a sim onl y plan unless you move to a handset plan. You can find the current plan cancellation cost you will be charged on the optus app. If you do have success changing plan and getting the fee waived let us know.

      I'm on a lower level sim only plan with Optus ($40 for 80G) with plenty of time left on the contract. I asked about upgrading to a plan similar to this during end of financial year sales and I was told I'd get an early termination fee. Though they will happily start a new 24 month contract with hardware.

    •  

      In the same boat - same plan also started in Jan, and they told me $160 termination fee.
      This is very good offer, but unfortunately - pass…

    Am I the only one who can't see the offer?

    Is there a link to the offer? I can't see it on the optus site

    Can’t find anything online regards to this deal any help appreciated

    Online chat were not able to find the deal for me.

  • +2 votes

    Does this offer even exist?

  •  

    Can anyone actually see the offer or sign up? Would be a killer deal if it is actually an obtainable plan!

    • +2 votes

      Can't see the deal either, but I can actually tell you that I'm on this plan right now. I signed the contract by the end of June promotion event and it's exactly the same deal as this thread. I guess it might be a backend system error so the expired deal page accidentally popping up again when OP found it. And obviously they removed it very soon.

      •  

        That's true. I did sign up to the $40 / 80GB / 4GB Roaming deal and would love to sign this up to another in the family so we can pool the data. Both the $40 / 80GB and $45 / 100GB are killer deals on its own.

    Weird, it was there at 1am… Now gone

  •  

    Darn, it's not on the site. Was hoping to switch

  •  

    You can get $50/100GB if you check via being a Virgin customer, but I'm not sure where the OP has gotten the extra 10% off though.

  •  

    must've been a glitch in the matrix. The deal is gone lol

  •  

    Definitely a glitch on the website, the deal displayed EOFY offer and expiring 30/06/19. Then the website said we are busy now, and now it’s been removed.

  •  

    Yes, definitely a glitch. They dont do 12 hour flash deals. I figured if it were legit, it would stay until the morning which it did not !!

    Average deal tbh

    Wait for 80GB $40 again

  •  

    $50 still is not bad for 100gb

  • +1 vote

    site was up mid night but promotional date was June or something, probably a glitch

    anyway ebay is offering 150 giftcard for the $50 80G plan, check that out if you are in a rush

    How exactly does the data sharing between eligible plans work? My wife and I are both with Optus, both have been on sim only plans for 12+ months so can easily Upgrade, I pay $30 for 15gb and she pays $30 for 3gb lol. Can I essentially get the $50 plan with two sims/numbers and share the data?

    •  

      put both plans on the same account and you just get it is my understanding.

    •  

      $50 only gets you one plan though. You'd still need to keep the second number on some kind of plan.
      I asked the chat earlier if they could do anything for me where I wanted something similar, wanting basically this plan, but a second SIM somehow (free or low cost) to use the data as well but the cheapest they offered was $25 for 5GB.

    •  

      How do I get 15gb for $30?

  •  

    I am planning to switch my network from Vodafone to something much cheaper option, currently i am paying $40 for 50GB data. 1000 mins International Talk for Zone 1 and 150 for zone 2.
    Just want to know that what other options I can go with without sacrificing data and reducing monthly bill?
    PS: I can wait for offers too, like new year offer or Christmas.

    Thanks.

  •  

    Damn it I don't check Ozbargain for 24 hours and then all of sudden I miss out on this… sigh

    Not only has this offer disappeared. They have jacked up all the SIM only plans and reduced the roaming data to 2gb.

    Poor form by optus

    Was lucky to get the mrs and myself on the last offer $40 80gig and unlimited calls international with 4 gig data…. happened 3 weeks before she went OS.
    Made calls of 30-40mins almost daily to and from Europe, she ran her business from OS over the phone
    $0 extra cost. Fantastic plan.
