Network congestion is a problem that I am sure all mobile networks across the world experience.

There is certainly some truth in the [...]

Optus My Prepaid Daily Reviewed

Over the past week I have been trialling the new Optus My Prepaid Daily plan. If you haven’t heard much about the My Prepaid Daily, Prepaid Daily Plus and My Prepaid Monthly from Optus, they will be taking over the existing Optus prepaid range from October for new customers as the older plans will be phased out. Existing customers on these older plans can of course stay for as long as they like. The My Prepaid Daily plans start at $1 a day and come with 30 minutes of talk time, 40MB data and unlimited TXT and MMS. Want more data or accidentally use more, and you “bumped” up to the Daily $1.50 option, which gives you another 40MB plus unlimited calls, TXT and MMS for the 50c. Continue using your data beyond the limit and you get bumped again for another 50c and another 50MB. This process continues until you reach a maximum spend in a day of $5 for a total data usage of 430MB. The bumping can take place at anytime in the day ie you could be surfing the web at 10pm (which I was) and if you overspend your 40MB, you get bumped with an additional 40MB for 50c (see detailed explanation below) and then have the remainder of the day (2 hours) to use it up. Just for clarification a day ends at 11:59:59pm local time each day. – See more
