Fees, charges and cancellation
Start-up fee: There is no start-up fee when taking these plans.
Installation fees: Installation fees may apply if you request a technician for set up where a self-install option is available. If you are an Optus nbn customer, Optus may send you an Optus self-installation kit. Additional fees may apply for a first time nbn connection to dwellings in new developments or for any additional lines or non-standard installations.
Phone plans and calls: Calls are charged in one-minute increments. You must preselect Optus as both your local and long-distance carrier. “Unlimited” calls to standard national numbers exclude special numbers such as 13/1300 numbers, premium numbers (e.g. 1900 numbers), 1234, 12456 and calls to satellite numbers.
International call rates: Can be found at Optus.com.au/WorldSaver. Other rates are available at Optus.com.au/standardAgreements. Available to eligible residential customers who connect the services in the same name and address to the Optus broadband networks. You must pre-select Optus as both your local and long distance carrier.
Minimum term: For month to month plans or services, you must connect for a minimum of one month. Minimum term and charging commence when your service is operational (see also ‘Use of Optus supplied modem and nbn services’ below).
Minimum total cost: Minimum total cost for each month to month plan is calculated by adding the start-up fee, full device costs (if any) and one month of the applicable plan fee.
- For the Internet Plans: There are no plan cancellation fees because they are month to month. If you cancel:
. Any related Device Payment Plan will also be cancelled and you’ll need to pay out the full remaining cost of any device and any applicable device credits or discounts will be forfeited (see ‘Device Payment Plans’ for more information); and
. You’ll also need to pay all charges and fees, inclusive of charges outside of your plan inclusions (including for services, devices or accessories), incurred up to the end of the billing cycle in which the service was cancelled (unless otherwise specified).

- There are no cancellation fees for the month to month add-on Phone Lite and Phone Everyday 10 services.
- There is a cancellation fee of $200 for the standalone Phone Everyday 50 plan if you cancel before the 24-month term (which deceases over the 24-month term).
Device Payment Plans
You can acquire an eligible device on a device payment plan, in which (as applicable):
- Optus will cover the cost of the device as part of the plan while you remain connected for a specified term (we’ll let you know if this applies); or
- you can pay for a device over a term which we will allow you to select (i.e. ‘pay over time’ or POT) by monthly instalments, (each a Device Payment Plan or DPP).
You will need to remain on an eligible Optus plan for the term of your DPP. If you cancel your eligible plan or move to an ineligible plan before expiry of your DPP, your DPP will also be cancelled and you’ll need to pay out the remaining device payments in full. Any applicable device credits or discounts will be forfeited. This is subject to your Australian Consumer Law rights. Optus may limit the number of eligible devices per Optus plan.
Non-direct debit fee: A $2.20 fee will be charged each month if you choose not to pay your bill by direct debit. To set-up direct debit go to Optus.com.au/myaccount.

Important service and equipment information
Optus Email: Optus email addresses will be disconnected when moving from a plan that includes broadband to a phone only plan.
Serviceability: Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee connection until we successfully install your service.
Priority Assistance: We do not offer Priority Assistance. A provider who does is Telstra.
Equipment and battery back-up: Equipment supplied requires mains power, which may not be suitable if you have a serious illness or condition and require an uninterrupted telephone or data service. We do not support battery back-up functionality for nbn services and in most cases, nbn services will not function during a power failure.
Some equipment like back-to-base and medical alarms and other devices may not be compatible with the nbn or the 4G backup service and are not tested by us or supported on the Optus nbn. You should contact your device supplier to find out if your device will work before connecting to the nbn network.
Accessibility: For information about products and services we offer for customers with different disabilities, please see: https://www.optus.com.au/about/inclusion-diversity/differing-abilities/disability-services
Use of Optus supplied modem and nbn services: Optus is required by law to confirm your nbn service is working. We may not be able to confirm this if you do not use the modem that Optus supplies you. If you use a modem not supplied by Optus, that is, your own modem, we won’t be able to confirm your voice service (if applicable) is working so it may not be operational and you will need to inform Optus of any issues with your nbn service before those issues will be rectified. To ensure your Optus Service is operating optimally, you should use the modem we provide to you. Billing will commence once we confirm your nbn broadband service is operational.
nbn FTTC and HFC: If you are:
- an Optus nbn FTTC customer and fail to plug in your nbn equipment within 30 working days,
- an Optus nbn HFC customer and fail to plug in your nbn equipment within 60 working, from your nbn equipment delivery date, your order may be cancelled automatically.
Speed & Video Quality: Many factors affect speed and video quality such as internet traffic, your line condition, your hardware and software, the data source or destination, your location and the number of simultaneous video streams or other downloads you have running over your connection.
Optus supplied modems
The Optus supplied modem that you will receive will depend on the Home Internet plan you select.
Your Optus supplied modem must only be used at your home broadband service address.
You must ensure your Optus supplied modem remains connected to your fixed line (for example, via the nbn™ network terminating device) and you must not otherwise knowingly or recklessly interfere with your Optus supplied modem or home wiring in a way that may disable your fixed line home internet or phone service.
Each Optus supplied modem will have different functionality and features.
Asus Gaming Modem
- If Optus provides an Asus Gaming Modem along with your plan on a Device Payment Plan, Optus will cover the cost of the modem if you remain connected for 36 months.
- You may also have the option to purchase the Asus Gaming modem to use with an existing eligible Optus Fixed internet plan, in which case you can pay for the device outright (we’ll charge you on your next bill) or you can pay in monthly installations on a POT Device Payment Plan (DPP) over a term of 12, 24 or 36 months (as selected by you). There is no monthly credit or subsidy applicable to the Asus Gaming modem when purchased this way. You must remain on an eligible Optus fixed Internet plan. If you cancel your eligible service or plan during the term of the POT DPP, then the DPP will be cancelled and you will need to pay out the full remaining cost of the Asus Gaming modem.
- For Internet Gamer Plans customers: A Phone Service is not supported with the Optus Internet Gamer and Internet Gamer Fast Plans, which means you won’t be able to have a fixed line home phone service that you can use to make or receive calls or contact emergency services like 000
- For customers who purchase the Asus Gaming modem to use with an existing eligible Optus Fixed internet plan: If you have a phone line with your existing eligible Optus Fixed internet plan and are using the Asus Gaming Modem, you may not have access to your voice service. This means that you may not be able to use it to make or receive calls or contact emergency services like 000. Given this, you will need to consider choosing between your existing phone plan and purchasing and using the Asus Gaming modem.
- The 4G backup service that’s provided via the Ultra WiFi modem is not available with the Optus Gamer Plan.
- Optus Pause, Optus WiFi Secure and Optus WiFi Booster are currently not compatible with and will not work with the Asus Gaming Modem.

- The SIM supplied with the modem provides 4G Mobile Backup and must not be removed. The SIM will not work in any other device.
4G Mobile Backup
- Optus 4G mobile backup is a complimentary service that provides an interim broadband service using the Optus 4G plus network in Optus 4G Coverage Areas only (4G backup service). It is only available using an Optus Ultra WiFi Modem with an Optus SIM on our network.

Service Limitations: Some services or service features may not work while the Optus Ultra WiFi Modem is using the mobile backup pathway. This includes but is not limited to (as applicable) the voice service, static IP and any speed upgrade on your home / small business broadband service. While using the 4G backup pathway on your Optus Ultra WiFi Modem, Fetch will be supported on a best effort basis. The 4G backup service is limited to 30 consecutive days unless you contact Optus with a problem. If you don’t contact us, Optus may suspend the 4G backup service until the fixed connection is online
Data usage and speed: There are no data limits for the interim 4G backup service. The speed of the 4G backup pathway has been limited to a maximum line speed of 25 Mbps for downloads and 2 Mbps for uploads. Speeds are variable on the Optus 4G mobile network and will depend on a number of factors including congestion, location of the modem, local conditions, hardware, software and general internet traffic.
- Fair go policy applies.
Optus Ultra WiFi Booster
- If Optus provides an Optus Ultra WiFi Booster with your plan, Optus will cover the cost of that first Booster if you remain connected for 36 months.
- You may also have the option to purchase Optus Ultra WiFi Boosters separately to use with an existing eligible Optus Fixed internet plan or additional to any you already have (within a specified limit), in which case you can pay for the device outright (we’ll charge you on your next bill) or you can pay in monthly installations on a POT Device Payment Plan over a term of 12, 24 or 36 months (as selected by you). There is no monthly credit or subsidy applicable to Boosters purchased this way.
- You must use the compatible Optus supplied modem (currently the Sagemcom 5366 TN modem and or Optus Ultra WiFi modem) with the Optus Ultra WiFi Booster for it to work properly.
- The Optus Ultra WiFi Booster will support up to 200 connected devices.

- Fetch Multiroom: Available to new or existing Fixed broadband or Postpaid Mobile customers on selected plans in selected homes only. Maximum three Fetch STBs per household. Content quality can be affected by equipment content location and broadband network congestion.
- Data usage: downloads, and uploads associated with software updates, applications, games or the downloading of content via Free-To-Air catch up services and YouTube will not be zero-rated. This may result in your broadband service being throttled if you are very close to your data limit (if applicable). If you connect your Fetch set-top box to any other broadband service apart from an Optus fixed broadband service, all data usage will be charged, and those charges will depend on your broadband service provider and plan.
- Fetch Channels: All channel packs are month to month and can be added or removed via the Fetch set top box. Billing for channels is charged in advance for 1 month. There are no refunds if cancelling or changing within a billing period. Access remains active for deselected channel packs until end of billing period.

Calling bolt ons and speed: Calling bolt ons and speed packs are month to month and can be changed at any time. Changes to service will take place 24-48 hours after the change is requested.
