MANAGING DATA FOR YOUR TEAM JUST GOT A WHOLE LOT EASIER

These days, it's hard to imagine a business running smoothly without the help of smartphone, tablet and wireless technology.

Connect your business' mobiles and tablet devices to My Plan Business (Including SIM only) mobile plans and Mobile Broadband Business plans on the one account so your data will be pooled and shared across your team.

More great news:

  • There's an added sweetener of UNLIMITED standard national talk and text for all connected mobiles on our latest My Plan Business (including SIM only) mobile plans
  • And some of our latest My Plan Business (including SIM only) mobile plans also come with standard International minute call inclusions, to selected countries
  • If you have a small team, you can monitor your team's spend through the My Optus App and by getting usage alerts.
