Optus have announced that they have charged past the eight million mobile customer mark in the past quarter. Holy crap that's a lot of people.
That number is an increase of 213,000 in the past quarter, which Optus claims is "underpinned by demand for Apple iPhone 3G, other smartphones, and ‘Timeless’ plans." While the number includes wireless broadband customers as well as mobile phone plans, that's still an absurdly high number, especially considering the negative press Optus got after the original iPhone launch.
Still, it just goes to show how much pulling power the iPhone actually has in this country...
