5G network

Aussie Broadband is near the end of its MVNO contract with Telstra. It's about to swap its mobile plans to the Optus network by the middle of 2021.  

Aussie Broadband can only access part of the Telstra wholesale network under its current agreement. But once it's over, the company will move to Optus

Migrating to the Optus network

The upcoming contract with Optus will give Aussie Broadband access to 5G connectivity.  

"We will be launching on the 5G network for our mobiles in the fourth quarter of FY21," said Aussie Broadband General Manager of Marketing and Corporate Strategy, Matthew Kusi-Appauh. 

Currently, SpinTel is the only MVNO on the Optus network that offers 5G mobile broadband plans

Aussie Broadband will soon be part of the line up. However, the company is not yet giving details about its upcoming mobile plans. 

SpinTel and Optus 5G plans

People can expect that the new Aussie Broadband plans might be similar to Optus 5G internet deals 

SpinTel's 5G mobile plans start at $45 per month with a 50GB data allowance. They also offer a $5 per month discount for a customer's first six months. 

On the other hand, Optus' own 5G plans start at $39 per month with 10GB. 

Aussie Broadband’s offerings

But aside from quality internet deals, consumers can also expect Aussie Broadband to offer a range of handsets. They will bundle it with their new Optus-powered plans.  

The devices that Aussie Broadband will offer are not yet announced as well. 

At the end of Aussie Broadband's contract with Telstra, all of their mobile plan subscribers will be migrated across to the Optus network.

Furthermore, the upcoming contract with Optus allows Aussie Broadband to resell Optus 5G fixed wireless broadband. However, Kusi-Appauh says the telco doesn't have plans to launch a 5G home internet product at this stage. 

Aussie Broadband only confirmed that it would offer 4G backup for both residential and business customers when it moves to the Optus network.
