The two capitals will join the existing six trial sites which cover Perth, Fremantle, Mt Isa, Mildura, Griffith and Esperance in the middle of the month ahead of the full rollout next year when the 700Mhz frequencies become formally available.

There are still only a handful of full 700Mhz compatible handsets and devices on the Australian market, including Telstra’s current “Ultimate” WiFi hotspots (both pre and post-paid) as well as the Galaxy S5, HTC One M8 and Desire 610, and LG G3, although Telstra states that it expects “a range” of additional devices in the coming months.
