So Aussie Broadband was right and Telcos will be increasing their plan fees in response to the high NBNCo rates?

That's a pretty big price rise / feature removal change from Optus.

  • The $500 minimum start up cost means it can no longer be considered month to month IMO. 
  • There now appear to be no option at all for 40 Mbps upload speeds
  • The removal of the complimentary $6 Fetch package removes the only reason for getting a Fetch Unit via Optus
  • The Everyday plan is more expensive than the Entertainer Lite and you don't get a Fetch Mini

All up, after a period of opening up Optus seems to have decided to again try trap their customers into expensive plans with high up front costs (why are they charging a $99 startup fee in this day an age?) and no BYO modem option (still).

Optus has a great offering. It should have the self confidence to believe customers will want to stay once they've enjoyed what's on offer.

And they are still perpetuating the Optus Sports tax they introduced to the Internet Everyday plan in the last price increase, where their $70 plan increased to $75 with the only notable difference being the forced inclusion of Optus sports.

After being forced to buy the over priced modem and pay the transfer fee these plans are horrible value. While very slightly cheaper than the opposition it would years to see an return on the investment and in this time it is likely prices will shift again. I will take a pass Optus
