Left Over Data


Im currently on a 24 month contract which obviously includes a GB Data Allowance. I am finding that I am using approx only half of my Data Allowance.

My question is;

is there a way to share my data with someone else? I am aware of Hotspot and Tethering but for those you need to be within a certain distance.


Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Re: Left Over Data

If its a standard mobile plan then the simplest way would be for you to sign up another Optus SIM Only plan on the same bill/account. 


Cheapest option would be like $30 for 3Gb a month.


Being on the same account both plans automatically share the data pool. You and the other person can then split the combined monthly plan fees and also the data.
