OVO Mobile

Bringing something different to the prepaid mobile phone arena, OVO Mobile is also one of Australia’s newest mobile providers, having launched in March 2016. The market they entered was already crowded with options, but OVO opted to keep their mobile pricing simple and straightforward and distinguish themselves via an unusual extra feature that’s actually built right into the brand, rather than being the usual limited special offer.

OVO’s trump card is OVOPlay, a video streaming service that’s made deals with several sporting codes to offer live streams, on-demand video and interactive content. OVOPlay can be accessed for free by every OVO mobile customer both via a web site and through iOS and Android apps.

The company’s SIM offerings place an emphasis on generous data allowances, with their data-only plans for tablets stretching to 50GB per month. Larger plans include unlimited calls, texts and MMS within Australia – the only difference is the amount of data that’s included.

At the moment, OVO doesn’t sell phones of any kind – no matter which plan you pick, you’ll be bringing your own phone. OVO uses the Optus 4G Plus network for calls and fast data.


Sports Available on OVOPlay

With plans to expand in the future, OVOPlay currently features coverage of V8 Supercars, Audi Sport Customer Racing Australia and Gymnastics Australia events. The Supercars coverage extends to providing customisable live in-car telemetry data during races, too. Those curious about whether OVOPlay is for them can try it out for four hours free of charge on the OVO web site, with no need to sign up.

OVO Mobile FAQs

Streaming video of any kind can take a big chunk out of your monthly data allowance, so it’s great to see that OVO offers all of its OVOPlay content completely unmetered – stream all day anywhere you happen to be and it won’t count against your monthly data allowance.
Under OVO’s standard plans, no, you can only call and text to numbers within Australia. However, they do offer an additional package – called OVO Extras – that lets you add credit of between $5 and $20 to your account for making call and sending texts to overseas numbers.
While “data rollover” plans (where unused data from one month’s recharge is added to the next) are becoming increasingly common, OVO doesn’t offer rollover at the moment. It’s best to drop to a cheaper, lower-data plan if you can’t use up the allowance.
