Optus Mobile Broadband Plans

Mobile internet plans are a great idea for anyone that is always on the go! Mobile broadband plans give you the freedom and flexibility to take your mobile broadband plan with you wherever you are. Some people may use their mobile internet plan to squeeze in some extra work on the train to work whereas others may travel interstate regularly and need a good, reliable internet source.

One of the most popular options for mobile internet plans is Optus mobile broadband. So let’s take a peek at what Optus mobile broadband can offer you.

What can Optus Mobile Broadband Plans Offer You?

Optus is the second largest telecommunication provider in Australia, only after Telstra. It offers almost unrivalled coverage and a strong track record for reliability. When choosing Optus mobile broadband for your mobile internet plan you are giving yourself peace of mind that you will get a high quality service for your hard-earned money!

Other than a great service, Optus mobile broadband can offer you a fast 3G USB mobile dongle that you simply plug into your computer and log on to enjoy the mobile internet access. The USB dongle works on any laptop or computer that has a USB drive – so you can plug it in wherever you go.

Depending on your mobile broadband plan, you will also receive up to 100 national SMS messages. Contract plans also include the USB mobile internet dongle free of charge.

Optus mobile broadband can also offer you a wide range of mobile internet plans to suit your budget and usage requirements, which we shall look at next.

What Types of Optus Mobile Broadband Plans are There?

As we just mentioned, there are all sorts of Optus mobile internet plans to choose from – making it easy to find the right one to suit you.

There are both 12 month and 24 month mobile internet plans as well as pre-paid mobile internet plans. We’ll discuss the pros and cons of each of these shortly!

Depending on how often you will be using your Optus mobile broadband, you can choose a plan that has the right amount of data allowance for you. Data allowances for mobile internet plans range from 1GB per month up to around 9GB on pre-paid, however there are neither limits on how many times that you recharge per month nor any limits on Optus mobile internet contract plans.

Pre-Paid versus Contract Optus Mobile Broadband

The main decision you need to make when choosing Optus mobile broadband is whether you want to commit to a contract or just go for pre-paid and pay on a month-by-month basis.

There are pros and cons to both pre paid and contract mobile internet plans. If you only want to have Optus mobile broadband as a back-up to your usual internet or just on hand if you need to travel interstate or away from home, then pre-paid is probably the best option for you.

However, if you plan on using your mobile internet plan regularly each month then you will benefit from the extras that an Optus mobile broadband contract can give you. This includes a free USB dongle and extra data allowance for your money.
