I want a broadband plan with no peak or off peak times
Broadband plans with no peak or off peak restrictions are becoming more popular as internet providers realise customers are after something simple.
Whether you need ADSL1 (regional) or ADSL2+ (metro) broadband, bundled or unbundled, there are plans out there which offer a decent amount of GB to use whenever you like. If you’re looking for a mobile broadband plan, there are also deals which aren’t complicated by peak and off peak restrictions.
Optus ‘yes’ Fusion Plans
The Optus ‘yes’ Fusion plans come with a very heavy amount of download with no restrictions on when you can use it. Plans come bundled with an Optus home phone with unlimited local and national calls. The $79 (120GB) and $99 (500GB) plans have unlimited calls to Optus mobiles, whereas higher plans include unlimited calls to any Australian mobile.
The Optus ‘yes’ Fusion plans are on a 24-month contract, however you will receive a $0 setup and a free modem.
Optus mainly serves customers in or around the metropolitan areas, and they also offer cable broadband plans. You can call them on 1300 137 897 to find out if they can offer a broadband and home phone package at your address.

To join the Club, it’s just a $50 annual membership fee.
There are three straightforward plans to choose from:
