Australia’s second-largest mobile provider has been in the game for over two decades now, providing mobile connectivity to a vast amount of the Australian population both through their own customer base, and those of other third-party providers. But in an industry that’s not short of choice in prices, plans
Optus’s business division exists to do precisely that, offering phones, plans and accessories tailored to those who’ll be using their phone for work rather than play. It doesn’t matter if you’re a sole trader with an ABN or the head of a decent-sized registered company, Optus Business has products, plans and services to suit.
Along with business-centric concerns like support for fleet services (allowing data sharing across an entire workforce, for example) and satellite connectivity, Optus Business can assist with solutions like mass notifications, analytics, centralised device management and more.
But at the core of it all, the idea is to provide a fully-supported mobile service at great rates only available to businesses – and that’s something that can help out millions of individual Australians, not just the CEOs and IT managers of large companies.

A registered ARBN or ACN is also accepted.

Optus Business FAQs
Do Optus Business plans include unmetered Netflix?
Just like Optus’s consumer plans, unmetered Netflix and Presto is available on the higher-tier business plans, and can be had for $10/month on lower-tier plans.

I need an iPad for work – can I get one on a plan?
Yes – Optus Business has a large range of iPads, along with tablets from Samsung, HP and Alcatel – all available on a monthly plan (and special tablet data plans are available to power them).
Is insurance available for my phone or tablet?
Yes – Optus offers Device Protect, which will replace your lost or stolen device within two days or get a damaged one repaired within the week. To keep you on the air uninterrupted, Optus will provide you with a loan phone for the duration. Needless to say, Device Protect is only available at the time of buying a new device directly from Optus.
