Optus to shut down Unwired from Feb 28
blog Well, it’s been coming for a while; it’s been kind of obvious since Optus bought Vividwireless in February this year for its spectrum that the wireless telco’s network assets would eventually be shut down. And now the pedal has started to hit the metal. Optus has reportedly starting emailing customers on Vividwireless’ Unwired network (remember how Unwired was planning to set the world on fire, circa 2005) to let them know they only have a few months before their broadband goes AWOL. The company’s statement today (from an Optus spokesperson):
“Following Optus’ acquisition of Vividwireless earlier this year, we undertook a review of the current services available to Unwired customers. As a result, we have taken the decision to close the Unwired network from February 28, 2013. Optus will provide a range of great value 4G and 3G mobile broadband plans to ensure existing Unwired customers can continue to do the things they love online.”
The most comprehensive article we can find on the subject comes from El Reg, which has a copy of Optus’ letter to Unwired customers and has gone to town on it. The good news is that Optus’ 4G and 3G networks are pretty good these days; although if you want the best wireless game in town, your best bet is still Telstra. Don’t even think of picking Vodafone. You’ll regret it.
