Optus has introduced an australia-first innovation ‘optus pause’, giving customers the ability to pause notifications and connectivity distractions.

Whether it’s study time, bed time, dinner time or personal time, Optus Pause means users can temporarily pause connectivity on all, or some, of their Optus home and Optus mobile devices simultaneously.

Optus Pause is free and exclusive to Optus customers on selected postpaid, prepaid and home plans.

Clive Dickens, Vice President of TV, Content and Product Development at Optus said, “as a technology company, we know the positive role that connectivity plays in the everyday lives of Australians, but we also understand that sometimes our love of staying connected 24/7 can create distractions for ourselves, our families, our friends, our work colleagues.”

“Optus Pause empowers our customers to balance their connected time so a face-to-face business meeting can be social-media-update-free or family dinner time can be about the conservation, not missed snaps, and sleep time can be absent from ‘pings’.”

Optus Pause is available now through the My Optus app and allows home and mobile customers to easily manage their time online by deciding when they would like to pause and take a connectivity break.  Customers can set a timer for how long they want their connectivity pause to last, and on what devices.

If users want to reconnect before the pause is over, they can do it with the click of a button.

“Optus is pioneering digital and customer innovation through a ‘one click’ solution that works across mobile and home WiFi connections, across Optus connected services, and all devices connected via WiFi on Optus nbn plans with the latest Optus supplied modems, on the same account and household,” Dickens said.

Optus Pause will be rolled out in a phased approach.
