Optus Managing Director of Marketing and Product, Ben White, said “The App has been very popular with Optus customers, with more than 4 million screen views since its launch. So far Australians are engaging across a broad range of content, personalised for them and refreshed every day across a wide range of topics, including animals, history and science."
