Optus has announced new standalone NBN home internet plans that are divided into two categories: 50/20 Mbps and 1
For the 50/20 Mbps plans marked as Standard Plus, consumers can choose from three NBN plans. The first of these is an unlimited, monthly plan known as an Internet Entertainer, which earns consumers AU $ 75 per month. The plan also gives users access to Optus Sport.
The second plan, Internet Entertainer Lite, does the same thing but will pay consumers back AU $ 79 per month. For the additional AU $ 4 per month, users also receive a Fetch Mini and three months of Fetch Ultimate.
The final plan, Internet Entertainer, is also month-to-month unlimited for AU $ 90, where users get access to Optus Sport, Fetch Mighty, three months of Fetch Ultimate, and a month of Premium Channel Pack.
Optus claims that the 50/20 NBN offers a typical download speed of 44Mbps between 7:00 PM and 11:00 PM. All plans come with an Optus Ultra Wi-Fi modem.
The second set of NBN plans, known as Premium Speed Plans, offer the same extras as the Standard Plus plans, but instead offer 100/20 Mbps speed.
The 100/20 Mbps plans are all unlimited month to month and come with a modem and a download speed of 80 Mbps between 7:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m.
The first 100/20 Mbps plan that comes with Optus Sport costs AU $ 95 per month.
Meanwhile, the second plan costs AU $ 89 per month for the first 12 months and AU $ 99 thereafter and features Optus Sport, a Fetch Mini, and three months of Fetch Ultimate.
The third plan costs AU $ 100 per month for the first year and AU $ 110 thereafter, along with Optus Sport, Fetch Mighty, three months of Fetch Ultimate, and one month of Premium Channel Package.
On Thursday, the telecommunications company also unveiled two unlimited 5G data plans that will be available later this year.
The first plan is an unlimited download and speed plan over 5G that costs AU $ 90 per month and is said to have an average nightly download speed of 214 Mbps.
The second plan is called the Daily Plan, which costs AU $ 75 per month and has a maximum speed of 100 Mbps. The telecommunications company said its average evening speed on this service is 85 Mbps.
Optus currently has more than 900 locations that have been upgraded to 5G connectivity.
