Month to month cable

By accepting the benefits of this bundled offer, the connection date for your phone that you agree to will likely be longer than the maximum timeframe in the Customer Service Guarantee (CSG). Apart from this, any other rights you have under the CSG still apply. For more information, see

FAIR GO POLICY APPLIES. Available in selected homes in selected areas.

Important Information for Cable & NBN Customers: Equipment supplied requires mains power, which may not be suitable if you have a serious illness or condition, require disability services, have a back-to-back alarm, or require an uninterrupted telephone line. If this is the case, contact us and we'll help you find an alternative solution.

The Nitty Gritty

Minimum Total Cost includes payment by direct debit. Installation fees may apply if you request a technician installation where a self-install option is available. If you change plans during your contract term, an Early Recontract Fee of $80 applies and you must start a new 24 month contract. Plan pricing will differ if your service is connected outside of Optus network areas. Unlimited Calls to standard national numbers excludes special numbers such as 13/1300 numbers, premium numbers (e.g. 1900 numbers), 1234, 12456 and calls to satellite numbers. Calls charged in one minute increments.

General: Offer available to credit approved customers.

Non-direct debit fee: A $2.20 fee will be charged each month if you choose not to pay your bill by direct debit. To set-up direct debit go to
Exception: For payments made by credit, debit, charge or prepaid cards, the non-direct debit fee will not apply.

Payment processing fee: If you pay by BPay savings or direct debit from a bank account or credit card, there are no processing fees. A processing fee applies to non-direct debit payments made by credit or charge card and/or if you pay at Australia Post. For details go to

Entertainment Bundles: The $15 per month Yes TV by Fetch Connect package fee and the $15 Entertainment package fee are waived for the duration of your plan. If you move to a plan without Yes TV by Fetch the monthly credits will cease. Storage based on Standard Definition recordings.

International call rates: can be found at Other rates are available at agreements. Available to eligible residential customers who connect the services in the same name and address to the Optus DSL Direct, Optus Cable or Optus NBN networks. You must pre-select Optus as both your local and long distance carrier.

Cancellation: If you cancel any or all services within the committed term, you may be charged a cancellation fee. Any remaining Optus services will be moved to the closest alternative of our standard plans.

Serviceability: Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee connection until we successfully install your service.

Yes TV by Fetch: requires an active fixed broadband Internet connection with a download speed of at least 3Mbps, a widescreen TV and free-to-air TV service with an external antenna connection. Yes TV by Fetch (Gen 2 set top box) is not Wi-Fi compatible, so unless your set top box is directly connected to the modem via the Ethernet cable (a 2.5m Ethernet cable is supplied during installation, and comes with your set top box), then you’ll need a powerline adapter (included in the package). If you’re purchasing an Optus bundle, delivery of the set top box can take up to 10 business days from the date the internet is activated. New customers will receive a 2nd Generation set top box (STB) (or any latest version when available). A $135 processing fee applies if you want to upgrade from a 1st Gen to a 2nd Gen STB. Note: to access Netflix and Stan through Yes TV by Fetch, a 2nd Gen STB is required. Buying content gives you a non-transferable right to use that content, provided you maintain your Yes TV by Fetch service.

Cable Speed Packs: Available to Cable serviceable customers only. Upgrades to Optus' fastest DOCSIS 3.0 internet service which increases download speeds for Australian-hosted content. Actual download speed can be affected by factors such as your equipment and LAN performance, settings, hardware, software, internet activity, location of content accessed and congestion. WiFi connection may not be as fast as wired device. Only Optus-supplied DOCSIS 3.0-compliant EMTAs will be supported. Computer must meet minimum system requirements and may need network settings optimised.

Speed: Many factors affect speed such as internet traffic, your line condition, your hardware and software, the data source or destination and your location.

We do not offer Priority Assistance. A provider who does is Telstra.

By selecting these plans you agree to preselect Optus as your local and long distance carrier.

Powerline adaptor

This device is a really neat way of getting internet connecting from one place to another in your home.

Simple plug one adaptor into the wall and connect to your modem, then plug the other into a second socket in your home, and your internet or Optus TV with Fetch signal will get carried through your electrical wiring.

It’s inexpensive, relatively easy to set up and more reliable than Wi-Fi. Each Powerline Adaptor has a set of two plugs.


Professional Installation


We can organise a technician if you need one. You may need a visit from a technician if you have a back-to-base security system (check with the manufacturer).

You will need a technician if you want your existing phone sockets wired into the NBN (most people don't).

What's involved?

With a professional installation, an Optus technician will:

  • Set up your Optus Wi-Fi modem.
  • Connect your computer and existing phone sockets.
  • Make sure that your NBN broadband and phone services are working.
  • Connect up to two Wi-Fi devices and show you how it's done.
  • For existing Optus customers, transfer services such as Optus TV with Fetch.
  • If you need any additional work done you can ask our friendly technician for a quote while he's there.

Speed packs increase the speed available to your broadband, so you can upload and download faster, or have more people surfing at once.


Up to 30 Mbps Download
Up to 2 Mbps Upload

This is the standard speed offered on our cable broadband plans. Great for when there are a few of you at home or where more than one device is connected to the internet at the same time.


Up to 100 Mbps Download
Up to 2 Mbps Upload

As fast as it gets, this speed pack gives you plenty of power for several people to be online with multiple devices all doing data-hungry things like downloading movies and music, playing video games online, or streaming live video and TV.


Speed: The speeds above are only an indication of what you may experience on your service. The speed you will experience depends on a number of factors including your access type, demand on the Network and local conditions such as internet traffic, your line condition, your hardware and software, the data source or destination and your location which can interfere with reception and speed.
