|Prepaid Mobile Broadband Review – Optus Recharge Vouchers (November 2012)|
|Optus is a leader in the prepaid mobile broadband market in Australia. Whilst the market doesn’t necessarily see them as having the same speeds as Telstra, nor the reach (although coverage wise they do claim 90%+), they are seen as better value than Telstra. Having followed their prepaid offers from when they were launched, Optus has chopped and changed their offers far too many times. The most confusing being last year when they offered both the Connect N Go and the Connect N Surf plans. I couldn’t understand the difference and why they offered both. Today they have a range of recharge offers which recently had a review and fell in value. The falls have occurred in $10, $30 and $40 recharge vouchers. What has also occurred is that data increments are now p/1MB not p/10MB which to date has been a real failure for Optus. Furthermore, Optus has also dropped its unlimited Facebook/Twitter access which came with these recharge vouchers. So we have some good news and then some not so good news.Optus this week also launched their 4G plans. $129 buys you the USB modem and 3GB data which will last for 30 days. You can then recharge. The recharge vouchers are equal to what is offered for 3G. 15% bonus also applies where you recharge online.Optus allows you to rollover your prepaid vouchers as long as you recharge before the expiry data and don’t accumulate more than 20GB.|
