Telstra To Demo LTE-B Service And Devices At The NRL Grand Final

With this year’s NRL Grand Final, Telstra’s taking the opportunity to once again showcase LTE-Broadcast — or LTE-B, if you want to use fewer letters. If you happen to be invited inside the company’s “Connected Lounge” at ANZ Stadium, you’ll have a chance to check it out.

The LG Watch Urbane 2 Is Android Wear's First LTE Smartwatch, And It's Big As Hell

LG has hit the ground sprinting when it come to smartwatches. One of the first out the door with the original G Watch, followed by the G Watch R, and the Watch Urbane this spring. Now, they have got yet another smartwatch to sell — and this one is an Android Wear first.

Australia's 4G Is So, So Much Better Than The US

We’re always being told the U.S. is now lagging behind other, more industrious nations in science and technology and basically anything that isn’t spending on the military. How much is it lagging, though? Here is a depressing graph to help quantify that.

Telstra's Wi-Fi 4GX Advanced III: Hands On With The World's First 600Mbps Mobile Hotspot

Telstra is Australia’s largest telco, and that means it can spend a bit of cash on keeping its 4GX mobile network world-class and super-fast.

What Is 'Category 9' 4G?

As much as we might like to complain about our mobile internet coverage and the speed of our connections, Australia’s mobile data networks are actually world class. Along with Korea and Sweden, Australia leads the way in the adoption and take-up of new super-fast 4G LTE-Advanced standards — and the latest is Category 9, a fancy frequency-meshing network capable of 450Mbps downloads.

What Is 5G?

If you take a stroll outside today, you’ll see a lot of people with mobile phones, phablets or tablets in their hands making calls, using the internet to catch up on the news, watch videos, or interacting with others via Facebook, Tumblr or Twitter.

LG Is Building A Smartwatch With An Enormous Battery 

I have a hard time caring about smartwatches. They sound neat, but most of them have tiny batteries that can barely last a couple days. Why can’t someone make a watch that both looks swanky and has a decent sized battery? Well, LG just did: it’s called the Watch Urbane LTE.

Huawei Wi-Fi Cube 4G: Australian Review

If you can’t get ADSL or cable or NBN internet at home, or if you don’t need that much data per month over the ‘net, and you live relatively close to a city or metropolitan area, a 4G mobile broadband device might suit your needs very well. These usually come in the form of a Wi-Fi hotspot, portable and battery-powered, but this Huawei Wi-Fi Cube is designed to live in your home and connect everything in it wirelessly to the internet through Vodafone 4G.

Optus Launches 700Mhz 4G LTE

It’s the 1st of January — happy new year — and with it, the 700Mhz spectrum that used to be used for analogue TV broadcasts is now open for carriers to utilise. Optus has announced the rollout of more than 270 700Mhz sites across Australia.

Telstra's Top 4G Mobile Broadband Plan Is A Bit Silly [Updated]

If you use a lot of mobile data, it can be attractive to go all-out and find a plan that has extra capacity over what you’d usually use.
