Page 1 of 1
Optus has announced fixed monthly pricing for unlimited access to its cable Internet service Optus @Home.
The Optus@Home service is provided by @Home Network Australia, the joint venture of Cable & Wireless Optus and Excite@Home and under the special offer users will pay from $59.95 a month or $69.95 for a year in addition to a one-off installation fee. Fixed term 12 month and month-to-month contract options are available.
Users will receive a constant, high-speed connection to the Internet, unlimited download capacity, rich multi-media content and a range of other features including high-speed software downloading, customised Netscape Navigator and Internet Explorer browsers, five email accounts and five 5MB Webspace accounts for personal homepages.
The all-inclusive, one-off installation fee includes a DOCSIS standard cable modem, Ethernet Network Card, and a one-on-one training session by an Optus @Home technician.
"Our pricing demonstrates that we have listened to consumers and are giving them what they really want - Optus @Home allows customers to download from the Internet without suffering 'bill-shock' which is what can happen with metered charges that are difficult to track," she said.
"The addition of Optus @Home to the suite of products on our HFC network is the culmination of a long held vision. We offer multiple services via our broadband network - telephony, pay television and now high-speed Internet."
