At Optus, it’s all about data – and how much easier customers can now share it between mobile devices after the company’s announcement which will benefit households and businesses.
Now customers can create their own data pool and share it across more devices including smartphones, tablets and mobile broadband dongles.
Previously only data-only devices like tablets and dongles could dip into the shared data reservoir from linked mobile plans.
Families and small businesses can now combine any post-paid mobile plan or mobile broadband plan and share all of the included data from all of those plans into one big data pool.
And everything can be tracked on a single bill.
Optus has also added more data to its mobile broadband plans with a $60 My Mobile Broadband Plus Plan now offering 12GB of data to use on your favourite mobile device each month.
For an individual this mobile broadband plan could supplement their current Optus smartphone plan which may not have as much data.
Optus is also offering a special deal if you want to bring a family member or colleague into the mobile sharing plans and get a brand new device.
Account holders with active 12 or 24-month post-paid mobile or mobile broadband plan can add a new iPhone or iPad on a 24-month plan and receive a $150 one-off credit.
Customers can add up to five extra iPhones or iPads and receive a credit of up to $750.
Ben White, Vice President, Mobile Marketing, Optus, said, “We want customers to get the most out of their mobile and tablet plans. Sharing from one data pool means you only have one bill and keeping track of data usage is so much simpler.
“Now, if mum doesn’t use all the data from her mobile phone plan, she doesn’t need to hand over her phone when the kids have already finished the data in their tablet, it’s already in the pool ready to share on their own devices.”
