Optus nbn and online gaming

Whether you're in the middle of playing always-on DRM games like Dawn of War III, constantly getting DLC or trying to download Day-One patches; your internet connection has to be up to scratch. Here's a few things you should be considering when selecting the type of NBN connection and Optus nbn™ plan that suits your needs.

Data allowance

Worried about chewing through all your monthly data? We've got NBN broadband plans with unlimited data - no allowance, no worries.


With fibre connection all the way up to a street corner, curb or basement of a building, there's a reduction in the effect extreme heat or rain has on your internet connection.

Copper is used for the last few meters to connect your house, but usually provides more reliable speeds than your ADSL2+ broadband connection.

Streaming eGG network via Fetch

Want to watch the biggest eSports tournaments and the best in gaming entertainment? On an $80 Optus Broadband plan, you'll get access to Fetch and Australia's first 24-hour eSports and gaming channel, eGG. Enjoy live coverage of international gaming tournaments and HD viewing experiences of games such as League of Legends, FIFA Online 3 and more - without leaving your lounge room.
