Best Plans on the Optus Network – Prepaid and Postpaid

The Optus network is incredibly popular in Australia with a very strong 98.5% population coverage, dual band 3G 900/2100 and a super fast 4G LTE network that is being rolled out across the country very quickly.

Optus has also offered its network through MVNOs (Mobile Virtual Network Operators) or resellers for a long time, with a number of large resellers operating on their network including Amaysim, with no restrictions on coverage unlike Telstra does to its resellers.

Because these resellers have a lower overhead and lower operating costs, they generally offer the best value on the Optus network, while still offering the same coverage and network access. The resellers are also responsible for their own customer service – so if you’re after an Australian call centre for support, then Amaysim could be a good fit for you.

We’ve created a few tables to compare the offerings from all of the Optus network resellers so that you can find the best deal for your needs.

Low Usage Prepaid Plans

There are some great deals for low usage users on the Optus network from Amaysim which you can sign up for as either a prepaid or monthly billed service. Both are perfect if you only make the occasional call and want to pay for what you use rather than paying for a large monthly allocation that you won’t actually use.

Why Would I Choose An Optus Reseller?

Here’s five reasons that we think you should consider choosing an Optus reseller.

1. If you’re already on the Optus network and you’re looking for a better deal, then the resellers like Amaysim can be a great way to get a better deal on your mobile phone plan while knowing that your coverage won’t change.

2. Most MVNOs/resellers have lower overheads because they don’t engage in the large scale advertising campaigns that the three network owners do, which means they can pass on these cost savings to you in the form of cheaper calls and larger data allocations.

3. Because they are smaller companies, you will typically get better customer service from companies like Amaysim – in fact, they’ve won a number of customer service awards for their excellent Australian based customer support centre including the Roy Morgan Customer Satisfaction Award for Mobile Phone Service Provider of the Year in 2014 and Canstar Blue Award in 2013 and 2014 for most satisfied customers.

4. With Mobile Number Portability, you won’t lose your mobile number when you change providers – you can bring your existing number with you and still get access to the great value calls and data packs offered by these providers.

5. Finally, Optus resellers have unrestricted access to the Optus 3G and 4G networks, which means coverage in more places across Australia and quicker data speeds on their new 4G networks.
