Telco Optus has launched two mobile phone plans that allow unlimited calls on local, national and GSM networks in Australia and thrown in a bit of mobile data access.
The 'yes' Timeless plans are being touted as an industry first by the company, but they don't start cheap and may out of reach for many consumers.
The 'yes' Timeless $99 includes unlimited standard local and national voice calls, standard SMS, MMS and calls made within Australia to GSM mobiles plus 200MB of data when taken with the $14.95 mobile Internet pack.
The 'yes' Timeless $129 plan includes unlimited calls and text messages and 2GB of mobile data. This plan includes voicemail deposits and retrievals and will begin on July 28.
Optus consumer managing director Warren Hardy said the plans will change the way customers use their mobile by providing unlimited calls and SMS to networks within Australia.
"Un-timed calls will no longer be restricted to a landline," Hardy said. "The 'yes' Timeless plans are ideal for people who worry about busting through their Cap when they talk and text."
