You can get this plan on a month-to-month, 12 month or 24 month contract. Monthly and upfront costs may vary.
You need a compatible modem fitted with a 4G SIM to use this service. Optus will supply the modem and SIM, you can pay for the modem up front in the first month on a month to month plan, in 12 monthly repayments on a 12 month contract or $0 upfront on a 24 month contract. The SIM supplied with the modem must not be removed from the modem and will not work in any other device.

Serviceability: Service is only available in selected areas on the Optus 4G Plus network with the modem supplied by Optus at the address specified in your application. There may also be technical or commercial reasons that affect your ability to access the service at your address. Check your service availability on the Optus website. We recommend that you position your modem close to a window to maximise signal strength.
Speed: Whilst the Home Wireless Broadband service uses the Optus 4G network, it is designed to be used in the home and its data speeds are different to mobile and mobile broadband speeds on our 4G network. In metropolitan areas where there is 2300 MHz coverage at your nominated address, download and upload speeds of up to 12/1Mbps are available. If 2300 MHz coverage is not available at your nominated address, download and upload speeds of up to 5/1 Mbps are available. Your actual speed will depend on a number of factors including congestion, location, local conditions, hardware, software and general internet traffic.
The SIM supplied with the modem must not be removed and will not work in any other device.

Optus is Australia’s second largest mobile phone service provider, and with good reason. Despite facing enormous competition, Optus has made enormous investments in the reach and quality of its phone network across the country, and now can boast 98.5% population coverage and blazing fast network speeds on its 4G Plus network.
The Optus phone plan range includes all of the options available elsewhere.
Similar to the other big Australia phone service providers, Optus phone plans are packed with extra features and bonus offers. In general these plan features are available on all Optus plans, but there are exceptions, so make sure you keep an eye out for features you want when selecting a plan.
Optus customers wth a My Plan Plus phone plan get exclusive access to all 380 English Premiere League football matches each season via the dedicated Optus Sport app for iOS and Android. On top of this, you can also watch live Cricket Australia matches too.
Optus Sport is included for free with phone plans of $45 or more, and on certain home broadband plans.
Data-free video and music streaming
While other providers might give you a limited-time subscription to a single streaming service (like Apple Music) Optus customers get to stream content from a huge number of these services for free, including Netflix, Stan and Spotify.
Data-free streaming is available on all Optus postpaid phone plans, including SIM Only plans. If you choose an Optus Prepaid Ultimate Plan you get free music streaming and up to 10GB of video streaming each month.
If you have multiple Optus postpaid phone plans on the same account you can pool all of the data from these plans together and share it across all of these services. This is great for families where you might have a single high-data plan and several lower cost plans sharing the data pool/. It is also a great idea if you use multiple internet devices, like phones, tablets and laptops.
