Frequently Asked Questions

  • What modem or dongles can I use? 

    You can use any unlocked modem (or dongle) with amaysim DATA or one that is compatible with the on the Optus Network. The modem must also have the ability to operate on either the 900MHz or 2100Mhz network frequencies for 3G services to work.

    Most modems are ‘locked’ by the operator so it’s best to check with your current provider. When you are ready to set up your device read our internet and APN set-up instructions for more details. 

  • What is the amaysim coverage area? 

    We’re powered by the Optus 3G Dual Band Network which covers 97% of the Australia population. Your ability to access 2G/3G services and the location where these services are available within the Optus Open Network depends on the capability of the device you’re using. A number of other factors may affect coverage including location and demand on the network. Visit our coverage page for more detail 

  •  How fast is amaysim DATA?

    The theoretical maximum download speeds are as high as 7.2Mbps in some areas. This means you could theoretically download your typical 5MB song in less than 6 seconds. However it’s not always going to be that fast as there are many factors which influence your Mobile Broadband speed. Some factors include:

     

    The distance you are from the mobile tower

    Obstructions between the device and the tower

    The number of other people using the same tower as you to access mobile broadband. It's like driving on a road - the less people using it the quicker the drive.


    As there are usually people using the same road, we find the actual speed most people can expect is between 512kbps and 1.5mbps. So if you’re downloading that 5MB song, it’s probably going to take around 29 seconds to download. We think that’s pretty good considering you can do it all on the go. 

  • How do I renew my amaysim Data Pack? 

    To take the hassle out of payment and so you have access to data when you want it, we automatically renew your data pack every 30 days (unless you are on the 10GB data pack). If you’re a Post-paid customer, your data pack will be added onto your monthly bill. For Pre-paid customers, you just need to make sure you have enough credit in your account or have nominated a credit card or bank account with us. Easy. Of course, you’re free to leave us at any time (we don’t think you’ll want to though) you’ll simply forfeit what’s left of your data. 

  • Will I be notified before my data allowance expires? 

    Yes we’ll keep you up to date via SMS and email alerts you when you’ve reached 75%, 90% and 100% of your data allowance. If you still want to use data after your monthly (30 days) allowance is reached you will be charged at 5c/MB or you can upgrade your data pack.

The fine print: Small but important details: You need an amaysim SIM card, an unlocked mobile device which works on a 3G/HSPA network to access MBB. Not available for proprietary Blackberry services such as email, data MMS or internet. Data usage calculated in 1MB increments per session. The included data can only be used within Australia. Your 1GB, 2.5GB or 4GB Data Pack will automatically renew on expiry as a standard setting. If you have used up all the allowed data in your 1GB, 2.5GB or 4GB Data Pack in less than 30 days you may purchase any larger Data Pack or be charged at the “As You Go” price for data. Should you wish to buy another Data Pack of the same size or smaller you may do so only after you have reached the expiry period of your previous data pack. If you are using a 10GB Data Pack you can purchase any other Data Pack immediately upon having used up the full data allowance of 10GB. Additional charges apply for roaming. Not available in N.T. T&C's and Fair Go policy apply.
