More about OVO

OVO Mobile is a network reseller operating on the Optus 4G network, so if you know you have good Optus coverage where you live, then you should find that OVO Mobile offers exactly what you need.
This is always a tricky question to answer, but in a strong coverage area you should find that the service is good. However, this will depend entirely on where you live/work and the only way to know for sure is to test it out for yourself, or find an Optus network customer near you and ask how they find the network.
No, OVO Mobile is a prepaid only provider, so they only sell SIM cards for phone plans.
Yes. You can always keep you number when moving to a new provider. No exceptions.
Because OVO is a prepaid service provider, your data will cut off when you reach this limit. You can manually add more data though, $5 for 500MB or $10 for 1GB.
All SIM cards come in Mini SIM, micro SIM, and nano SIM. These options will fit into all phones from the last decade, or so.
The Optus network will continue to offer 2G services until April, 2017. This also applies for OVO Mobile customers.
As a prepaid service provider, there are no contracts or commitments to consider. If you're not happy with the service you can leave anytime.
International calls are billed differently depending on the country you call. You should visit the OVO website for full details. Also, you will need to buy OVO Extras credit before you make your calls.
Like international calling, the rates for roaming vary by country, and you'll need to visit the OVO site for the specific rate applicable for your country.
