Optus have announced their 3G MicroSIM plans to market, and the wait was worth it.

As if to demonstrate their knowledge of market demand, or perhaps in response to some of the feedback on Telstra’s own Data plans, optus have hit with short term and long term data plans.

Up to 186 Days validity for Data, which is 6 months if it lasts you that long.  Impressive.  And plans as low as 15 days.

Full details below:

Recharge Incl. Data Bonus Data
(until 30 Sept 2010)
Total Data Validity
$30 SIM Starter Kit 2GB 1GB Bonus 3GB 30 Days
$15 500MB 1GB Bonus 1.5GB 15 Days
$20 1GB 1GB Bonus 2GB 15 Days
$30 3GB 1GB Bonus 4GB 30 Days
$40 4GB 1GB Bonus 5GB 30 Days
$50 5GB 1GB Bonus 6GB 30 Days
$70 9GB 1GB Bonus 10GB 60 Days
$80 8GB 1GB Bonus 9GB 186 Days
$100 12GB 1GB Bonus 13GB 60 Days
$130 14GB 1GB Bonus 15GB 60 Days

Great to see some creative thinking on the plans, i think the six month validity is an excellent plan – well worth considering.

    Roaming might chew it up – some telcos might allow it, others not so…
