What is amaysim's network and coverage like?

Quick answer

All amaysim mobile and data-only plans are powered by the Optus Mobile Network. You’ll need to be using a 4G enabled device and be in a 4G coverage area to access 4G signal, otherwise your device will select the strongest available signal in your area, which in most cases will be 3G.

What will my coverage be like?

All amaysim mobile plans and data-only plans are powered by the Optus Mobile Network.

Coverage will depend on factors such as your device, software, location, your distance from a network tower and network traffic. To access 4G signal you’ll need to be using a 4G enabled device and be in a 4G coverage area.

When you’re on the go you may find your device switching between 4G and 3G, this is because your device will automatically select the strongest signal in your area.

Does amaysim have 4G?

Yes! All amaysim mobile plans and data-only plans are powered by the Optus 4G Plus Network.

4G is the fourth generation in mobile network technology, so if you’re in an area with 4G coverage and have a 4G compatible handset the Optus 4G Plus network can provide faster data speeds and a better mobile internet experience than the 3G network.

Currently the Optus 4G Plus network is a data-only network. The 3G network is still used to make and receive calls so you’ll drop back to 3G signal whenever you make calls.

Does amaysim have 5G?

Yes - amaysim now offers 5G mobile plans.
