OPTUS PAUSE

Im wondering if I can set a time with Optus pause so that the internet connection to my sons devices cuts out at say 9pm and starts again at say 5am. Can I do this and how? Thanks

Re: OPTUS PAUSE

Not often a company has almost exactly the right answer to your questions but in this case Optus does

If you want scheduling though then the usual way of controlling access of your wifi is to use built in parental controls on the router itself. Not sure Optus has great parental control options. Something like and ASUS router has the ability to schedule access easily on a per device basis. 

You can also set them to track overall usage (each hour) and also what websites they are visiting. There's also reasonably ok capability to set things like sex sites as blocked for them. Won't stop a determined teenager but will stop them accidentally wandering off into the wrong room on the internet.

Re: OPTUS PAUSE

Hey @Minghy, thanks for getting in touch with us. I'm afraid you're unable to set a timer for devices to be cut off and switched back on at a certain time. However, you can set a timer for 15 minutes - 1 Hr 30 min.
