Optus has announced a special deal "for Kogan and Aldi customers" to entice them to join the Optus network in the wake of ISPOne's move to voluntary administration. But the good news is that the deal is for anyone making a move to Optus prepaid, not just those coming off the ISPOne wholesale networks.

Optus is offering anyone transferring a number to an Optus Prepaid Social 4G plan double the data and double the standard talk on their first three recharges of AU$30 or more. An AU$30 recharge gives you 500 minutes of standard talk and 1GB of data, or an AU$50 recharge gets you 900 minutes and 5GB of data. The same plan also gets you unlimited Australian SMSes and calls to Optus mobiles. The expiry period on Optus Prepaid Social deals is 28 days.

While the deal is very much aimed at attracting those customers feeling left in the lurch — the marketing even asks, "Does your mobile need a big hug?" — it could still be a good chance for many others out there to take Optus 4G for a test drive if you've been thinking about that option.

The offer concludes at the end of September.
