Optus Pre-Paid Wireless Broadband

In Australia, you can purchase a minimum AUD$30 voucher with Optus SIM card for pre-paid wireless broadband if you already have Huawei E169 or E220 USB modem. Alternatively, you can buy the pre-paid bundled starter pack for AUD$199 and receive an Optus E169 USB modem, SIM card and 1GB of data.
  1. Buy the voucher at Optus, Woolworths, Coles or Dick Smith store
  2. Activate service online
  3. Check your available data balance and remaining SMS by sending the word ‘balance’ via SMS to 9999. You will receive a replay SMS confirming your available data allowance and how many free standard SMS you have remaining.
  4. Re-charge online using voucher
Your first 30MB of usage per day will be charged at 10MB. The downside is that usage after this will be counted in 10MB increments or part thereof and includes both uploads and downloads.
