  • Unlimited data allowances
  • Only available for Bridge Alliance networks
  • Works in Indonesia, Hong Kong and more

Optus has launched Bridge Data Roam Unlimited packs, a first-of-its-kind offer for Australians, giving travellers unlimited data roaming in selected Asia destinations.

Optus will give customers the choice of a three or five day pack for their selected destination with an unlimited amount of mobile data allowance. Destinations include Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan and Thailand.

Starting at $27 for a three day pack, the Bridge Data Roam Unlimited packs give Optus claims it gives customers less to worry about when using data roaming on their smartphones to research recommended restaurants, navigate their way through a foreign city, update social networks and more. Those staying in one city longer than three days can purchase a five day Bridge Data Roam Unlimited pack for $40.

Bridge Data Roam Unlimited packs are only available on selected Bridge Alliance networks and are allocated to a single participating Bridge Alliance network. Optus customers will 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.
