We’re thrilled to announce our exclusive partnership with global ride-sharing service, Uber.

Our aim is to help people stay connected, whether they’re travelling for business or fun without having to use their personal mobile data. Up to ten devices can be connected to the on-board Wi-Fi at the same time, meaning that all passengers are able to use our network on the go. And watch this space - more exclusive offers and experiences are coming.


Director of Local Markets at Optus, Steve Long, said the partnership is a great opportunity for Optus to align with a dynamic and innovative company to improve mutual customer experience.


“Uber has fundamentally changed the way we think about getting from Point A to Point B and for us this is an opportunity to create a truly connected experience for drivers and riders by using our superfast 4G Plus Network.”


We’ve teamed up with Uber before for the brilliant UberUMPIRE campaign on Australia Day 2016. The campaign saw legendary cricket umpire Billy Bowden and his team of umpires officiate backyard cricket matches across Australia.
