Optus has released a set of new National Broadband Network (NBN) packages available to small business customers in the first five mainland release sites.
The first mainland release sites are Armidale in NSW, Kiama in NSW, Willunga in SA, Townsville in Queensland and Brunswick in Victoria.
The packages cater towards offices with up to five employees and offers high-speed broadband, voice services, cloud-based email and collaboration tools. This includes Optus OfficeApps, powered by Google, and a new business domain name.Customers can choose to scale connection speeds up or down based on business requirements.
“When you consider that 48 per cent of Australian SMBs don’t have a website and only four per cent are using cloud solutions such as Web-hosted email, there is a huge opportunity for small businesses to embrace digital technologies,” Optus SMB managing director, Rohan Ganeson, said in a statement.
Packages start from $59 per month for a broadband only deal while phone and Internet bundles start from $99 per month. Contracts are available for 12 or 24 months depending on the package.
All plans are supported by Optus SMB customer care and the telco’s NBN installation team. The plans also include a NBN WiFi modem.
Optus intends to expand its range of consumer home phone and broadband bundles in March.
