Optus have announced their 3G MicroSIM plans to market, and the wait was worth it.

As if to demonstrate their knowledge of market demand, or perhaps in response to some of the feedback on Telstra’s own Data plans, optus have hit with short term and long term data plans.

Up to 186 Days validity for Data, which is 6 months if it lasts you that long.  Impressive.  And plans as low as 15 days.

Full details below:

Great to see some creative thinking on the plans, i think the six month validity is an excellent plan – well worth considering.
