Optus launches iPhone 4 plan details

Unlimited calling option available

Telco Optus has announced its iPhone 4 voice and data packages as it prepares for the launch of the device in Australia on July 30.

The iPhone 4 will be available on four of Optus’ monthly plans – $49, $59, $79 and $89 – with a 24-month contract.

The included call and SMS value of each plan is $450, $550, $800 and “unlimited” respectively and the data allowances are 1GB, 2GB, 2GB and 3GB.

Most of the plans offer a free iPhone, including the 3GS 8GB, but to get an iPhone 4 16GB or 32GB on the $49 plan will cost $8 and $15 per month, respectively.

An iPhone 4 32GB on the $59 plan will cost an extra $10 per month.

Optus’ announcement comes the same day as Telstra released its iPhone 4 pricing and plan details.

Optus consumer marketing director Austin R Bryan said the company has developed what it believes are the “most compelling” plans for consumer and business customers looking to use the new iPhone 4.

Since launching the iPhone 3G in July 2008, Optus has added some 1000 new 3G mobile sites and upgraded more than 2500 base stations.

Over the past 12 months Optus has more then doubled the carrying capacity on its mobile network and bought additional spectrum for use in both metropolitan and regional Australia, according to the company.

This week the three mobile carriers all announced their iPhone 4 pricing and plans, see:
