Telstra's 700Mhz LTE Hits 600 New Towns Friday

With the calendar rolling over to 2015, the 700Mhz spectrum split up between Optus, TPG and Telstra is fully available for carriers to use. We’ve already seen Optus’ plans roll out overnight, and now Telstra’s released a fuller picture of its 700Mhz “4GX” plans.

Telstra had already announced that it’d have all capital cities and 50 regional centres good to go today, but it’s now stated intentions to switch on 4GX 700Mhz coverage in a further 600 towns across the nation from January 2nd.

Specifically, and at some length, the new locations that’ll see Telstra 700Mhz LTE tomorrow will be:

As we’ve noted before, Telstra’s particular 700Mhz implementation uses LTE-A to bond the new 700Mhz network holdings to its existing 1800Mhz network for a theoretical boost in network download speeds on compatible devices. You won’t always be on the fastest possible speeds, as that’s the nature of shared mobile spectrum, but a fully compatible device should switch between available frequencies for the best possible coverage.
