Amaysim to offer 4G plans around April 2015

Optus and Amaysim today announced that the two companies have renewed their wholesale agreement. As part of the new agreement, Amaysim will use Optus' network to deliver 4G services to its customers. Amaysim will begin to offering prepaid and postpaid 4G mobile plans around April 2015.

“We’re thrilled to be solidifying our partnership with Optus into 2015 and beyond with a long-term wholesale agreement which continues to give us access to the latest technologies such as 4G,” said Julian Ogrin, Amaysim’s Managing Director.

The partnership will give Amaysim access to Optus' full range of 4G frequencies, including the new 700MHz spectrum. Optus is planning to expand its 4G network to reach 90% of Australians by April 2015.

An Amaysim spokesperson confirmed that all customers on the telco's unlimited 3G offering will be able to stay on the same plan at the same price if they don't wish to upgrade to a 4G service. A range of options will be available for customers on Amaysim's other two plans, including several 4G upgrade paths.

"We're pretty pumped about bringing 4G to Amaysim customers, and are working on delivering a range of plans to suit different data, voice and text needs, making sure current customers on our 3G plans will be as happy as new customers," said Ged Mansour, Amaysim's Head of Public Relations. "There'll be solid choices but our 4G plans will be simple and good value."
