I would like a bundled package where the phone has the ability to call mobiles and national calls.
I would also like the home internet connection to be wireless so if we take the laptop off the desk we can use it and eventually hook it into the TV. Also can you add an iPhone into your packages?
There will be different packages available to you depending on the area where you want to setup the home phone and broadband bundle. An ADSL2+ connection is generally available in metro areas, while an ADSL1 broadband connection is available in many outer suburbs and areas outside the main cities.
Optus has a number of ‘yes’ Fusion plans which include large amounts of data and also include unlimited local and national calls. All of the Fusion plans (apart from the $79 package) include a free wireless modem, which will allow you to move your laptop around the house whilst maintaining its internet connection.
You can call Optus on 1300 780 186 to find out if their Fusion plans are available in your area.
If the Optus package isn’t available, you could also try calling iPrimus (1300 137 794) and Spintel (1300 381 277) for packages which include unlimited local and national calls.
The Optus plans are priced at $79, $99, $109 $129 and $149, and include 120GB, 500GB, 1000GB and 1000GB respectively. The plans are available on a 24-month contract only. The $79 and $99 plans include unlimited calls to Optus GSM mobiles within Australia, while the higher plans include unlimited calls to any GSM mobile within Australia.
Optus also offers the new iPhone 4, as well as the 8GB iPhone 3GS. If you sign up for the Optus $49 cap, you can receive the iPhone 4 16GB for $324 upfront. This gives you $500 worth of credit along with 1.5GB of data to use each month.
Other providers offering the iPhone include Telstra, Vodafone (1300 650 410) and Virgin (1300 881 097).
