Telstra's Flagship Store Had A Gorgeous $112 Million Redesign

I’ll admit, sometimes in my dreams I go to a place full of gadgets, girt by glass and beautifully designed. Today Telstra cut the ribbon on its new experience store in Sydney, and it’s everything my imagination ever wanted.


Telstra's Foxtel Customers Get More Channels For Free, Too

Telstra’s bundling of Foxtel with its own internet and home phone line services has traditionally been an attractive proposition — pay for two services on the one bill and get a discount. But with the recent massive price cut for Foxtel plans dropping the entry level price to just $25 per month, Telstra’s $49 minimum starts to look a lot less enticing. Instead of cutting prices, Telstra is adding more content to those existing plans.


What Is 4GX?

In the next couple of months, you’ll be hearing more and more about a new technology that Telstra is switching on around the nation at the start of 2015. 4GX is just a fancy name for the telco’s new 700MHz mobile network frequency, but that’s not the only thing you need to know about it.

Telstra Abandons One Wi-Fi Hotspot To Focus On Widespread Next-Gen 4G

Telstra has ceased development of its earliest LTE-Advanced network, the first in Australia, to focus on a more mainstream and modern approach. This (entirely rational and forward-looking) move keeps Australia’s biggest telco up to date with technology and lets it support new devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, but leaves existing owners of one particular 4G Wi-Fi hotspot out in the cold.


Telstra Might Be Killing The T-Box

The partnership between Foxtel and Telstra is only growing stronger. With Foxtel about to release a new high-end iQ set-top box and a cheaper model for mainstream customers, rumours suggest Telstra might be about to discontinue the T-Box, its streaming video and IPTV player.


Telstra Hits Back At Optus' Next-Gen 4G Claims

“Correction”. That’s what Telstra had to say about Optus’ claim earlier today that it has launched Australia’s first LTE-Advanced mobile data network.
