    $65/month, not $65. Slight difference!

    •  

      Yea agreed I rushed over thinking 65 over 12 months - should have known better lol

      With 20% regional discount. It gets down to $41.20 per month!

      and less $30 from cashback through SHOPBACK or CASHREWARDS.

      •  

        Regional discounted price is the same as this deal unfortunately.

        • +4 votes

          go to checkout. it will show the final discounted price of $41.20. ($65 less 20% off from $119)

          or use this link to https://www.optus.com.au/mobile/plans/regional-offer

            @chunfat: is optus one been removed from regional offer page?

            •  

              @GAMBOL: I don't think so, because I am able to get the extra 20% discount to $41.20 on the 500Gb plan with 10Gb roaming data.

                • +2 votes

                  @cushydeskjob: Yes, It has disappeared, My current half filled in page is still active. So I finalised the application submission for $41.20 pm.

                  Now it is place with a "Temporary order number:". If they reject this application, then I guess it is just bad luck. (Also this re-validates my move away from them originally).

                  •  

                    @chunfat: I see the Regional Discount Offer is "N/A with other discount offers." Makes sense I guess. Best of luck.

                • +2 votes

                  @cushydeskjob: The temporary order got through, the optus sales agent called back to inform that my offer at $41.20 pm is not possible. However, They were able to apply the Optus One promo offer -$54, and the 20% regional discount of -$13 {calculated from ($119-$54)x0.2=$13}.

                  I should had executed this as soon as I saw this offer posted on here.

                  Anyway, final price for $52pm is good enough for me.

                  •  

                    @chunfat: I was in the same situation, had selected this deal and the left the page and it was gone before I could check out.

                    I just tried to see if they could match the offer that they gave you but they would not.

        I wonder why discounts for regional?

        The speed is poor?

        •  

          Not as good coverage as Telstra. But major regional cities like Shepparton has good enough coverage. So it is a bonus for people who are in "Not so regional" regional areas.

          Although, you do get a lot more dead spots while driving through the highway when compared to Telstra.

        •  

          Us country cousins have more dropouts and dead spots, slower speeds, no 5G compared to most of our city cousins.

      They are still building the 5G network, no weapons to fight back.

      •  

        they dont really need 5g, just higher bandwidth for 4g unlimited and they will get our money :)

        •  

          4g network will not be able to sustain it. They don't want people to hammer it.

      •  

        I have a mobile for work with Telstra, have seen on speed tests 300Mbps + from it on just 4g. I can't see 5g being the issue, just the bandwidth and/or technological updates in the 4g lagging behind with other providers.
        My regular phone is with Optus and I struggle to get good speeds. Both phones are Samsung S10's.
        At home just now am seeing 40Mbpsfrom Optus download and 130 from Telstra. Crap uploads though. I live in the hills though.
        In other words, I would put 4g with Telstra as the winning factor if speed is factor when choosing a phone sim or account. 5g is just a bonus. Until it is widespread and proven to be reliably fast.

      I think they just did, the new $55 plan now has 500GB, used to be 200Gb I reckon.

      •  

        Can confirm!
        On Oct 29th when I looked it was $55 for 200GB, and is now $55 for 500GB

  •  

    This is actually really tempting. Optus haven't really offered any good deals in the past 12 months or so and I've been sussing out a data sim for my laptop… Currently playing 40/month for 100gb data, decisions decisions…

    • +5 votes

      check your average usage, if close to 100GB then jump to this, otherwise, keep saving :)

      • +1 vote

        Sensible. I like it.

      •  

        I often hit pretty close to the 100gb but my inner ozbargainer isn't sure about paying the extra. I wonder if they would let me apply student discount which would then make this sub-60/month.

    •  

      Last year they had the deal $40 to get 80GB. But I looked at my usage I did not use much so I switched to Boost for much more savings.

  •  

    this one has data sharing right?

    •  

      Along a siilar line, what is the cheapest way to add a secondary, data only device to share data? I see the $15/month 10GB MBB plan. Would that be the cheapest?

      •  

        They used to have $0 data share sim which I've been using but don't think it takes new sign up now?

        •  

          Thanks for the reply. Seems like $15 is the cheapest step in. Was looking at getting it plus a data sim to replace home internet and my mobile. Currently on $10 belong so it would net about $10/month more compared with getting $60/month NBN + belong.

          •  

            @stiiky: I spoke to a customer service agent and they said they can reduce it down to $12 for an extra data sim but that's the lowest he was able to go.

        •  

          I'm currently on the $59 plan with 5 of the $0 data share SIMs (I think it used to be the maximum).
          Anyone know if I move to this plan, can I keep the data share SIMs, or will they get cancelled? HAving to drop the data share SIMs would kill the value.

            @nightelves: I'm also wondering if there is a way to use it for both home internet, plus e-sim on the mobile using one connection, similar to how people use Mobile+Watch (LTE).

            •  

              @wise penny: So I think the setup would be this. Modem with 5G sim for home internet and phone sim that you can carry around. The only concern for me is speed.

          •  

            @nightelves: I guess you will need a new modem to support 5g, but I am happy with 4g speed now, download like 10m/s on phones.

      •  

        Depends on too many variables to answer Tower capabilities, modem capabilities, line of sight to tower/distance to tower, weather conditions and number of users accessing the tower.

        In my case, I have a dedicated 4G modem with roof mounted Antenna, and my speeds vary from 100/8 off-peak to 30/8 peak times.
        Compared to my FttN NBN which is 30/8 max possible. With a more advanced modem, I'd expect to see 50/20 minimums in peak.

        •  

          Have you got a guide of your setup because I've heard you mentioned this a while ago and have always been interested. If you can extract 100mbps off 4G that is phenomenal.

        We use Optus for 4G home wireless broadband and its phenomenal! Just did a speed test, 161 down and 19 up

      No you can’t, I tried this before. You can’t put the SIM in their modem router, it blocks it. I had to get a refund and my plan cancelled because of it!

        I have been using 4G SIM, which came bundled with a Samsung tablet, in a Wifi 4G modem, didn't have any issue.

          Is it an Optus One plan? They block this plan specifically for use in a modem. I've had the same issue as Myocard.

          •  

            @ballistykx: I'm not sure. I bought it a bit more than 2 years ago when the had the S4tab promotion. $60/month for 200GB. When it expired after 2 years, they gave me the $65/m offer.

    Anyone know if this is 500gb per month or 500gb total for the 12 month?

    I live somewhere where there is no NBN, 1 bar of Telstra reception but fast Optus. We rely on Optus towers for our home internet and currently pay $40 for 200gb with Amaysim, so this is a cracking deal for us, thanks OP.

    •  

      Can I ask what is your average speed for the home internet? Was looking to switch over to this plan as well but just concerned about the speed.

      • +1 vote

        We have tested as high as 130.5MPps down and 33MBps down with Optus. We have very good Optus speeds but I know it's not the case for everyone.

        This morning it is 70MBps download, which is probably about average.

        •  

          Yeah that’s insane speeds. Max we get is 50mbps

    •  

      I'm interested in that Amaysim $40.
      I had been paying Optus $65/m, then switched to Voda for $55/m (with no charge for usage after 200GB).

      •  

        It's an ACN exclusive offer that's been available for a while. I got sent a code a while ago that still works so if you want it sent me a PM. I won't post it as they get blocked fast.

        Yeah it's from about 5/6 months ago, not sure if you can still get it.

  • +4 votes

    For anyone thinking of using it to replace their fixed home Internet line … just keep in mind that it's almost certainly on CGNAT, which may or may not be an issue for you. If you don't know what that means, then it probably won't affect you.

    try to get a second service for 50% off, so the $65/month plan will be down to $32.50/month in 12 months with 500gb of data per month.

    •  

      How exactly?

      •  

        If you have a plan from them try to recontract the first one then port-in the second service for 50%off. Call them on the hotline number Optus sales.

        •  

          Clearly says that no other discounts apply to this offer.

          What AirJodran23 is referring to is that Optus sometimes via phone or instore offers a port in discount of 50% off for the 2nd service on an account. This discount would not apply with this offer.

        Just was offered 25% off if another number was added = 25% off 39$ plan if signed up with my $65 plan.
        No takers in my home.
        Am using this for home internet. Didn't qualify for regional discount, even though 2 years ago I did.
        Still good deal! Streaming works well, but not super high speed.
        Location is hilly.
        Over 2 years now on Optus use for home internet using iPad/phone data share. Previous plan included 200gb with free Stan, Netflix etc streaming.

    Does anyone know what's the speed of this plan?

      its 5G plan, so basically the best network speeds available in your region. Also, you get priority access to data streaming if you are in a network congested area. That's what I have been told by Optus salesperson.

    good deal for home internet, not sure any router support 5g yet, but 4g is good enough for now.

          Wow that is faster than my NBN.

        If you live near an optus tower then you can get 200-400 mb speed but for home internet it depends on your modem. with older huawei modems you may get about 100/40 speed.
        data sharing simcard used to be $10 from optus stores.
        you may still get double data 1TB if you sign up for any 5G phones as well.

        •  

          double data is gone!!!

    •  

      optus also has a 5g home internet plan that is $75/m unlimited although it does have a 200 startup fee.

        Even cheaper with Spintel

        https://www.spintel.net.au/home/5G

        They have a $90 per month (discounted to $70 for the first 6 months) with a $20 start up fee.

        Or a 24 month contract for $70 per month (same $20 fee) and also discounted to $60 per month for the first 6 months.

    I negotiated an Optus $30 sim only with 100gb no contract, discount applied for 2 years over the phone.

This is a good offer but id ask for minium 24 month no contract as 12 sucks and $119 is too much when for $70/75 you can get wirless optus 5G unlimited data (Im on $70 unlimited now) for internet
