1. Need a tablet or modem?

We’ve got a range to choose from, and our Prepaid Mobile Broadband devices come with a SIM and start-up data to get you going. To enjoy our superfast 4G Plus network, look out for compatible devices.

Already got a device?

Then grab a SIM and make sure your device is SIM-ready. Choose the right size SIM; Standard, Micro or Nano. If you’re unsure, check your device manual.

2. Activate

Pop your SIM into your device and visit optus.com.au/activate. You may need current ID details (which may need to be verified by the issuer), so have your driver’s licence, Medicare card or passport handy.

3. Recharge

Recharge using the free My Optus app for iPad and Android tablets, available on the App Store or Google Play, or visit optus.com.au/recharge where you can use PayPal, internet banking or set and forget with AutoRecharge. Or grab a voucher at any Optus store or one of 20,000 outlets Australia-wide.



Optus Fair Go Policy applies

Compatibility: If you bring your own device, make sure it’s not locked to other networks and is compatible with the Optus networks described in ‘COVERAGE’ below.

Coverage: With 3G devices, you can access our 3G (UMTS 2100 MHz / 900 MHz) network. With 4G devices and a compatible plan, you can access our 3G network plus some or all of our 4G Plus network. Our 4G Plus network uses multiple frequencies (LTE 700 / 1800 / 2100 / 2300 / 2600 MHz) to provide coverage. Coverage availability will vary depending on your device and location. Check coverage at optus.com.au/coverage based on your address and device.

Data is counted in 1KB increments.

Data Rollover: Unused data will roll over to the next recharge up to 50GB if you recharge before your credit expires. You will lose all your data if you don’t recharge before credit expiry. If you recharge over 50GB you will forfeit any data over that limit.

1 Month: Equals 30 days.
