Optus

Optus Mobile of Australia


The first company to set up shop in Australia after the deregulation of the Australian phone market, Optus has since grown to be one of the country’s top two providers of phone and internet services. With their own extensive mobile phone network constantly expanding and improving, they were the first provider in Australia to offer fast 4G mobile services and continue to expand 4G coverage across the country, now taking in over 700 regional centres as well as the capital cities.

Optus pioneered the concept of providing value to their mobile customers by bundling extra services with their plans, offering everything from bonus data to free bundled items ranging from phone accessories to outright phone upgrades. They also offer access to their streaming English Premier League football coverage as part of their mobile plans, as well as the 2018 World Cup live and across multiple platforms, making them a definite go-to choice for fans of the world game.

Optus can provide customers with a full range of choices when connecting to a new service – you can bring your own phone and get onto a contract, month-by-month or prepaid plan, or grab yourself one of the latest smartphones from a huge range on a 2-year contract.

The Optus 4G Plus Network

Supporting the very latest smartphones, Optus’s 4G Plus network led the industry in speed when it was launched, and it just gets faster as the hardware catches up. With one of the latest generation of phones, the network supports data speeds substantially faster than even the full-fibre NBN, and thanks to Optus’s constant expansion of 4G Plus coverage, you’ll get those speeds in many more places.

Optus Mobile Review: Optus Mobile

Optus entered the Australian mobile phone market as the first alternative in what had up until then been a monopoly. Ever since, the telco has specialised in providing innovative, high quality mobile phone services at very keen price points.
