in brief Over the weekend, Optus announced a new offer: free fixed broadband with some of its mobile plans.

From today, Optus customers who sign up for an $89 Timeless or Business Timeless mobile plan for 24 months or a Home Advantage home phone plan for $59.95 per month will receive 50GB of free broadband, with no set-up fee.

Existing customers can upgrade to the plans to take advantage of the offer, or, if they are already on the plans, they can upgrade to free broadband. New customers get the added boon of a free Wi-Fi modem with the offer.

If they exceed the 50GB, their speed will be throttled to 256Kbps until the end of the month.
