Not long after Optus slashed the price on its 4G Home Wireless Broadband plans to $59 per month (previously $69), the telco has removed the previous 500GB data limit. $59 per month for unlimited downloads on 4G Home Wireless is a great deal but even if you're not convinced, Optus is offering the first month for free. 

There are two plan options: month-to-month and 24-month. The only difference between the two is that you will save yourself the $216 modem fee if you commit for 24 months.

In related news, Optus MVNO Spintel also has a tempting deal on Home Wireless internet. New customers can save $10 per month off the Spintel 4G Wireless Broadband plan for the first six months. That brings the monthly bill down to $49.95 from $59.95 per month for the first six months, ending at a price more comparable to the Optus Home Wireless deal.  

While both deals shake out at around the same price, opting for Spintel's offer has its pros and cons. For example, the Spintel 4G Home Wireless Broadband plan will get you 100Mbps potential speeds, whereas the Optus deal is capped at 25Mbps. But the Spintel plan is also capped at 500GB per month, whereas Optus offers unlimited downloads. In the end, you've got two good offers to choose from, it just depends on whether data or speeds are your priority.

With more and more providers offering unlimited data (or, at least, high data usage) on 4G and 5G Home Wireless Broadband plans, the mobile network-powered home internet solution is increasingly becoming a viable replacement for people with poor NBN speeds

Take a look at the table below for a breakdown of the most popular wireless internet plans on each network (Telstra, Optus and Vodafone).
