Optus discounts unlimited Internet bundles, available from $95 a month

Unmetered access to Netflix with the ‘home entertainment’ bundle

Competition from broadband newcomer Foxtel has prompted Optus to discount its unlimited Internet bundles.

Optus is bundling unlimited broadband with a home phone or a Fetch TV package for $95 a month.

The latter bundle offers access to Netflix, which can be enjoyed without worrying about surplus data costs.

The $115 unlimited home bundle will combine both home phone and Fetch TV, while a $70 home basic bundle is available with Internet capped at 200GB and a metered home phone allowance.

All of Optus’ bundled plans are contracted over two years and all plans — sans for the top-tier unlimited home bundle offering — incur a $125 'start-up fee'.

Optus’ $95 hero plan represents a price drop of $20 per month. The discount follows a promotion that ran earlier this year, immediately after Foxtel entered the home broadband market.

Bundled broadband packages are growing in appeal as more devices rely on a home Internet networks. Household data usage in Australia has jumped 35 percent in the year ending December of 2014, according to figures from the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
