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.

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

Telstra Customers Downloaded 2686 TB Of Data Yesterday

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.

Telstra Is Adding Voice Over Wi-Fi And Video Calling To Its Network In 2016

This year, Telstra will let its customers make voice calls using their mobile numbers over their home Wi-Fi, seamlessly handing off voice calls from 4G to customers’ in-home wireless networks when mobile coverage gets spotty. It’s also working on its in-house-developed video calling service that will operate over 4G.

Telstra Adds Category 1 4G Support To Its Mobile Network

Telstra is ready to support the Internet of Things.
