Vodafone isn’t the only company talking tough about 4G this week. Optus is also flexing its muscles, with the Australian Financial Review saying that Optus’ 4G network will go live beyond its Newcastle-test bed in the coming weeks.
SingTel’s country manager for Australia, Paul O’Sullivan, told the Australian Financial Review yesterday that the telco’s 4G network will be the backbone of its plan to offer Australia’s best network going forward, adding that the purchase of vividwireless is the first step in the plan.
The second step is to roll-out Optus 4G to Sydney, Melbourne and Perth, reportedly within a matter of weeks. [Australian Financial Review]
