Big data deal: 70GB data only SIM for $79.90 on OVO

OVO's fleshing out its range of data only plans with a new high-end offer: 70GB of data per 30-day recharge for $79.90 per month. Data only SIMs won't let you make phone calls or send SMS messages, but will still typically work in smartphones, as well as tablets, and 4G modems.

OVO is pitching its data only SIMs as an alternative to ADSL and NBN connections.

"The way Australian’s consume and access their data is evolving rapidly," said OVO CEO Matt Jones. "As 4G and 3G mobile coverage has become much more reliable across the country we get used to consuming data on-the-go. Paying for Internet that you can only access in one location is no longer the best option for many Australians."

"This is especially true as more and more people enter the rental market, where it makes less sense to enter long-term contracts on services that are restricted to an address they may not be at in six months' time. People living in share houses and anyone who has poor access to reliable and fast DSL or the NBN now have better alternatives to choose from."

The news follows Amaysim's introduction of two new sizeable data only plans, including a 70GB for $80 per month option. Amaysim's plans are however sold on 28-day renewals, while OVO's are 30-days. OVO and Amaysim are both powered by the Optus 4G network.
