What BYO 4G Modems (make & model) are supported by Optus ?
I’m looking to purchase one outright and get either a prepaid data only SIM or a no contract data only SIM plan.
Solved! Solved: Go to Solution.
The Optus 4G Plus network uses LTE 700 / 1800 / 2100 / 2300 / 2600 MHz frequencies. So as long as your device has those bands, it should work.
Optus supported modems, it can be found on our Device Guides page.
We also have a Device Compatibility for Optus 4G Plus support page where you can read more info on this.
@George_YCJust checking for future reference/usage, so I now can use non Optus branded modem with the two plans on the following page:
In the past the plans were only able to be used with an Optus branded 4G modem listed as per the link in your post.
I was asking for @George_YC as he is an Optus representative if anything has changed or not.
Modems die or become obsolete every few years and when mine karks it or thee is a better one I would like to get a better/newer modem (not part of this this thread BTW) that will work with the plans.
@AndS I was responding to the post in regard to Prepaid Mobile Broadband or a SIM Only Mobile Broadband, apologies for any confusion. Supported devices on our Wireless Broadband plans can be found on the Optus Wireless Broadband eligible device list post on Yes Crowd.
@Matte_Hatt as long as it uses our frequencies it should work, you may just need to adjust the settings to the use the correct APN. You can find more info on this on our APNs & technical settings for Mobile Broadband & Home Wireless Broadband support page.
In terms of support from us on these third party devices, it is limited. As we can only provide full support on devices from our Device Guides page.
