sounds great.

What may be the likely validity period for the prepaid downloads? e.g. 30-, 90-, 180-days, etc? The longer that is negotiated the better.

Ohh I like it. Very similar to the HSPA C3 plan i'm on, but instead of the $5/month going to the 100 "free" calls, it would go toward a modem. Data costs are only 0.5c/mb more expensive than this early "Good value" HSPA plan that I'm on too.

Any chances we can just sign up for a 12 month ADSL 2+ contract and get the modem offer ($5/month) while staying on our existing HSPA plans if we like?

Melanie is still working on how the offer can be made to current Exetel customers in ways that meet the Optus requirements and are easy to deal with via the user facilities.

With the $5/$9 per month fee - what happens after the 12 month contract expires? Is the modem mine, or is the fee an ongoing monthly rental indefinitely?

Just looked at "Change my service" - I guess the new plans aren't up yet.

The options won't be on the web site until next week.

After 12 monthly payments the modem is 'owned'.

31st of month is next Monday. Does that mean I sign up in June for a July 1 start date?

Just one little question, will the wireless back access plan be able to be used by current users on naked plans such as myself ? already on a 12 month contract.

i have a prepaid optus wireless that isnt locked and so all i need is a sim card...., so if and when im at the inlaws i can drag me laptop and use me optus usb thingy and use it instead of listening to whinning kids all night.

From Exetel June 2010 Customer News Letter
New ‘Occasional Use’ Wireless Service For Exetel Users

From June 1st we will be offering a ‘stand by’ wireless service for those customers who have Optus wireless coverage. We will provide a wireless broadband service on the following basis:

12 month contract
Sim and delivery $25.00
No monthly ‘minimum usage’
BYO USB modem or use the sim socket in your notebook/laptop
Alternatively a USB E160 modem for $5.00 per month added to your monthly bill
Data at 2 cents per megabyte – post paid

As a back up for your ADSL or as a service to be used when you are away from home this option should be useful to a significant percentage of ADSL users.

You can now order these services from the Exetel User Facilities.
Could someone please advise how to apply for this service as it does not show up as an option when changing to an OT_ plan?
Does the option appear under Manage Services Wireless Broadband after applying for an OT_ plan?
or is the Exetel Member Facilities still awaiting an update with the new options?

Thanks

The plans will be up shortly.

They have the same names as the current plans with a W suffix.
