Need to make lot of calls on a work trip? Optus has just released a pre-paid offer which costs $10 upfront, then $2 a day for unlimited calls and some data.
Here's an interesting Optus pre-paid plan that caught our attention - it's Optus’s $2 a day pre-paid plan.
If you find your smartphone usage to be limited to specific periods of time such as when working remotely from the office, then it might be worth looking at.
For $2 a day you get unlimited calls, text, MMS, voicemail retrievals and 500MB of allocated data to use per day. If you have a day where you don’t make any calls or don’t use any data then you will not be charged anything.
You can view the full list of recharge levels here.
Recharge levels go from $10 which lasts for 10 days to up to $100 to use over 100 days. Unused credit also rolls over on your next recharge.
Another way to look at it, is that you get 15GB of data to use over 30 days for just $60 in addition to the unlimited calls and texts. Or alternatively, $30 for 7.5GB of data over 15 days, provided you only use 500MB or less a day.
If you use more than 500MB in any given day, then you will be charged an extra $2 for another 500MB.
The allocated data includes access to Optus’s 4G network.
