Telstra subscribers are sure to be walking on cloud nine all the way to next year. The operator has recently announced plans its next-generation mobile data network that feature massive improvements from download specs, range, and coverage.
According to gizmodo.com.au, the souped-up version of 4G will give users the fastest internet speeds available in Australia. At 700MHz, 4GX effectively combines with Telstra’s 1800MHz 4G holdings and doubles its LTE networks download speed. This network upgrade is set to be in force starting early January next year. Here’s what users of compatible mobile devices can expect:
With a 700MHz-compatible smartphone, of which there are a few dozen already on the market including the Samsung Galaxy S5 and LG G3, you can expect somewhat improved download speeds from Telstra’s current 900MHz and 1800MHz 4G networks — purely due to less congestion and a larger contiguous chunk of spectrum being available to handsets. Around the 80Mbps download and 40Mbps upload mark seems reasonable. On 700MHz plus 1800MHz LTE-Advanced on the Telstra Advanced Pro X hotspot and the Note 4 — the only two devices in Australia to support 4GX LTE-A at the moment — you can expect much improved speeds, in the order of 150Mbps download and 40Mbps upload.
Melbourne residents who want in on doubly fast LTE internet connections can look for Telstra dealers in Melbourne such as TelcoWorld Corp Pty, Ltd that offer mobile phone and landline plans as well as bundles that enable subscribers to enjoy the full potential of such fast wireless internet speeds.
Mobile phone plans and bundles are available not only for single users but also for businesses. Corporate users, for instance, can sign up for business plans with authorised Melbourne Telstra dealers such as TelcoWorld Corp. Pty, Ltd that offer flexible allowances for standard national calls anywhere from Australia. Businesses can also opt for plans that allow them to make free voice calls for any employee who is under the company’s account. For a reasonable monthly fee, businesses get to enjoy 24/7 connectivity and superior data services.
With only a few months left before the launch of 4GX, interested subscribers would do well to get in touch with a reputable Telstra dealer and order compatible smartphones soon.
