The SA-based ISP becomes Australia’s 3G telco reseller to offer iPad-friendly microSIM plans, starting at $15 per month for 500MB on the Optus network.
Optus 'microSIM' plans for the iPad 3G kick off at $15 for 500MB, stretch to $130 for 14GB, with expiry periods ranging from 15 days to six months.
Optus is making a play for business users of the iPad 3G with microSIM ‘BYO mobile broadband plans’ – and adding a ‘cash back rebates’ of $100 to $300 on Apple’s slate.
Telstra and Optus confirm their respective iPad microSIM prepaid broadband starter kits will go on sale days ahead of the iPad’s launch this Friday.
Optus will offer month-by-month 3G plans for the Apple iPad starting at $20 for 2GB, along with prepaid plans.
The nation's number two telco Optus has revealed a refresh of its iPad plans in preparation for this afternoon's 5PM Australian launch of the second version of Apple's flagship tablet.
Optus confirms that data rollover will be available across all of its nine ‘microSIM’ prepaid iPad 3G plans, with as much as 15GB able to be carried over for six months at a time.
The 3G iPad will come unlocked and ready to use with any prepaid mobile broadband service – provided the carrier uses the new microSIM card format.
Optus today confirmed its range of data plans for micro-sim devices, including the iPad.
As expected, Optus joins Telstra, Vodafone and 3 as all Aussie 3G carriers offer a group hug to Apple’s delayed iPad.
