Analysts over at Citibank have said that Optus offers the most flexible and best value deals for the iPhone, which will go on sale tomorrow at midnight at Optus’ store in Sydney.
The iPhone plans from Optus offer a no upfront cost on their $79 cap, which includes $550 worth of calls and 700MB of data each month, with all calls are charged 35 cents per 30 seconds with 35 cents of flagfall. Comparing that with Vodafone, it will only offer the iPhone for free at a $169 cap plan. Telstra, however, will offer its $80 plan with the free iPhone, however it will include $70 of calls and 5MB of data.
However, all plans will not go over 1GB of data, as it is expected that customers won’t be able to download iTunes content on the mobile networks, but on the Wi-fi networks.
