Re: Netflix data free

 

The cheapest you can get it for is $25; the $15 plan plus $10 extra for the TV option. But you will more likely pay for the $35 plan, to get the data, and free tablet or modem. However, if you get something free, you will have difficulty leaving the device contract. If you get nothing, then you can just exit. If I were you, I'd pick up one of the CAT6 modems.

 PS: Netflix will work on your smart TV.

Re: Netflix data free

It depends on how much other data you want, besides Netflix. However, the post paid plans have a catch - they bill you $10 for every GB you go over, and their metering is really laggy, so you wont know until a day later.

 

You have to protect yourself by buying a larger plan. That would be the $35 x 10GB  or $50 x 25GB or $70 for 100GB. I am on the 100GB plan, not that you should take notice of that.

 

These can be bought at Optus shops. You just ask for the $35 or $50 mobile broadband with TV, on 24 month contract. The top 100GB plan can be bought month to month, and still has TV. Make sure you get an email an hour after leaving the shop, saying you now have TV enabled.
