4G In Australia: Telstra Is Fastest, But Vodafone Wins On Availability

Wireless coverage mapping expert OpenSignal has released its first ever report on the state of mobile networks within Australia, and its findings are pretty interesting, if not completely surprising: Telstra currently offers the fastest possible download speeds on 4G, but that comes at the cost of slightly higher latency where Vodafone and Optus swing ahead. Vodafone also wins out on the availability of its 4G networks, with a slight advantage over both its competitors.


Here Is Nokia's Ultra-Compact 4G 'Network In A Backpack'

Nokia’s new Ultra Compact 4G network can provide voice, video and data services in emergency situations, remote locations and events within minutes, and act as a hotspot for public safety organisations, industries and operators.

Oh, and it can fit in a backpack.


Optus Begins Rollout Of VoLTE For Higher Quality Calls

Optus has become the last of Australia’s major telcos to introduce VoLTE — Voice over LTE — which allows customers to make and receive calls over the high-speed 4G Plus network. This saves phones from constantly having to switch between 3G and 4G while making calls, while also lending itself to clearer, more consistent calls.


Woolworths Mobile, Aldi Get 4G On Telstra's Network From Today

Telstra has finally opened up its higher-speed 4G mobile network for its MVNO partners Aldi Mobile, Woolworths, Telechoice and Better Life, and that means those telcos’ customers can now enjoy faster download speeds and even wider network coverage — but there’s a catch.


Here Are Aldi's Mobile Plan Changes For Its Upcoming 4G Upgrade

Here we are, thinking about 5G when there are still 3G-only plans out there. Such is the case currently for Aldi, which resells Telstra’s 3G — though not for much longer. Come 28 April, all customers will have their service 4G-enabled, with new plans to boot.


Vodafone 4G Now Reaches 23 Million Australians

Vodafone has increased its 4G network by more than 20 per cent to now reach 95 per cent of Australians. This puts it in second place for 4G coverage in Australia, behind Telstra 4G at 96 per cent of the population and ahead of Optus 4G at 92 per cent of the population.


Telstra Customers Downloaded 2686 TB Of Data Yesterday

Yesterday, Telstra gave its mobile customers a day of free 4G data by way of apology for a widespread outage that brought down its mobile phone network. That free data day itself slowed things to a crawl for plenty of users, but at least the network didn’t die again.


What Is 5G And How Will It Make My Life Better?

Everybody loves speedy internet, so it’s no surprise that every major telecom in the world is working to make it even faster. Smartphones, watches, homes and cars are increasingly requiring stable internet connections. In order to pipe in enough bandwidth for that precious wireless feed, we’re going to need an entirely new form of wireless signal — that’s where 5G comes in.


Telstra Is Spending Millions To Develop Australia's 5G Mobile Networks

Australia’s 4G networks are only getting faster. But it’s the future beyond 4G that equally concerns Telstra, so it’s playing an active role in ensuring that the next big leap forward in mobile networking is one that suits Australia and Telstra’s Australian customers — and it’s spending money to do so.
