Optus are giving travellers unlimited data roaming in selected Asia destinations available in two options, starting at $27.

There’s three or five day data packs for “selected” destinations which include Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, and Thailand.

A five day DataRoam pack will set you back $40, while the 3 day-er is $27, so whether you want to Facebook your mates, look for tourist traps or just send an email, these packs are good value for web surfing abroad.

The telco was previously branded the worst network for international roaming by the Australian Business Traveller, charging $20 per MB, so clearly wants to change its ways.

Once the pack expireds, roamers will be charged standard roaming rates of $0.15/KB (minimum 10KB) or $15.36/MB for Bridge Alliance members’ networks.

“We know Australians depend heavily on the internet to organise their travel and stay in touch whilst overseas, ” says Gavin Williams, Optus Consumer Marketing Director.

“We will continue to look for ways to offer best value roaming deals for our customers in other popular destinations
around the world.”

 

Bridge DataRoam packs are only available on selected Bridge Alliance networks, which Optus is a part of, and can only be allocated to a single participating Bridge Alliance network, meaning you can’t use multiple networks while roaming.

Users need to manually select the relevant network when they arrive at the overseas destination to ensure that they do not roam on non-Bridge Alliance networks.

Optus as part of the Bridge Alliance Asia Pacific’s largest and leading mobile alliance which includes: Airtel (India), AIS (Thailand), CSL (Hong Kong), CTM (Macau), Globe Telecom (Philippines), Maxis (Malaysia), SingTel Mobile (Singapore), SingTel Optus (Australia), SK Telecom (South Korea), Taiwan Mobile (Taiwan) and Telkomsel (Indonesia).

Optus’ Bridge DataRoam Unlimited packs will also extend to other destinations including Macau in the near future.
