Optus switches on customers' global roaming automatically - No more sparking mobile bill shocks
Optus has begun automatically switching on global roaming for many of its mobile customers. Global roaming allows mobile phone users to make phone calls and consume data using an Australian-registered phone while overseas. It is a major solution for high mobile bills that shock (Nearly 50% of Australian mobile users are receiving bill shock and paying 40 per cent more than their advertised monthly contract (Macquire university)).
To switch on the service Optus will be offering a new default option & soon will be part of your package.
From a pure perspective of making sure that companies don't run up high bills, I still suggest when you're going overseas, always turn your data off regardless.
