Optus unleashes streaming music for customers – unmetered data use

pretty sensational deal

Optus customers rejoice, you can now stream hours of music without any impact on your mobile data allowance. Optus today announced a bunch of features for customers including free streaming for major music services.

Specifically listed by Optus are Spotify, Google Play Music, iHeartRadio, Pandora and Guvera so no luck for Apple Music listeners it seems, but free data would be enough to make people switch to Spotify I’m betting.

Check the fine print, because it’s not “all Optus customers”, but from May 2″ new and existing customers on My Prepaid Ultimate, My Prepaid Daily Plus and other selected plans” can access the free data streaming.

It’s part of a suite of music products the telco is launching, including new live music experiences, meet-and-greets and other ticket opportunities and discounts of 15 percent off music products in a new customised music store.

Your move Telstra and Vodafone.
