Optus will fend off Foxtel’s triple threat play by discounting its unlimited Internet packages by $25 a month.
Customers who bundle unlimited Optus Internet with a home phone, Samsung Galaxy S tablet or Fetch TV package will pay $90 a month over 2 years.
The defensive move increases Optus’ competitiveness as Foxtel enters the home phone and broadband market with the use of rival Telstra’s infrastructure.
Foxtel is bundling its standard Pay TV service with a home phone and 50GB of Internet from $90 a month.
Optus’ discounted packing runs for a limited time until 6 April and covers Internet delivered via Optus Cable, ADSL2+ or NBN Fibre.
New customers adding an Optus mobile phone will receive $10 off their bill each month as an additional incentive.
