Optus improves Fusion plans

Optus has increased the data allowance on several of its Naked, bundle and Fusion broadband plans for both existing and new customers in time for Christmas.

The extra data applies to the 170GB bundles and Naked deal, 'yes' Fusion 99, 'yes' Fusion 109 and 'yes' Fusion 129. The biggest plan, 'yes' Fusion 129, is now a massive 1,000GB.

Customers on these plans will receive the extra data automatically from December 1, while new customers or those on other plans can give Optus a call on 1300 137 897.

$69.99 up to 170GB bundled with Home Phone:
Connection fee on a 24 month contract will change from $99 to $79 as standard; however Optus is waiving the connection fee for a limited time only. Data usage allowance will change from 85GB/85GB to 250GB/250GB, 500GB in total. Exceeding the peak or total monthly data allowance will result in a shaping to 64kbps until the end of the billing month.

Connection fee on a 24 month contract stays at $149. For a limited time, Optus is waiving this fee. Data usage allowance is increasing from 85GB/85GB to 250GB/250GB, that's 500GB in total. The shaping speed is 64kbps.

$79.99 up to 170GB Naked:

‘yes’ Fusion 129 with 50GB:

Connection fee on a 24-month contract has been cut from $99 to $79 as standard, and the connection fee is waived for a short period.

Customers on this plan take note: the data allowance has soared, from 50GB to 1000GB, a whole terabyte of data. World Saver Rates are now included as standard. Existing customers currently paying for the World Saver Rates can get this cost removed by calling Optus.
