Friday, 24 May, 2013


Telstra has switched on its 1500th 4G base station as part of a billion-dollar nationwide program to extend 4G mobile coverage to 66% of the Australian population by the end of June 2013.

A Telstra spokesperson said the milestone meant superfast download and upload speeds would be available for millions of Australians on Telstra’s 4G network.

The telco says the 4G network roll out program has extended coverage from 40% of the Australian population at the beginning of this calendar year. This coverage is in all capital cities and over 100 regional and suburban locations. Over 2.1 million services are connected to the 4G network.
