From the 26th of August, if you’re currently on the $2 Days 3G Ready plan you will be migrated to our new Optus Prepaid Daily 3G service. This new service will give you Unlimited 3G data every day, for an increase of a dollar a day.
We appreciate that this may cause you some inconvenience, and will ensure that any MyCredit and expiry you have on the 26th of August will be carried over to your New Optus Prepaid Daily 3G plan. We would also like to give you additional credit to cover your plan changes until your next recharge.
