The New Year has been super charged, with almost a million Telstra customers across Australia now able to enjoy superfast mobile services, as Telstra’s 4GX service reaches over 1,000 towns and suburbs.
In the largest activation of 4GX sites to date, over 600 new towns and suburbs, including some of our most popular holiday destinations and beachside suburbs, were switched on this week, making 4GX the hottest mobile accessory this summer.
What we have seen from the early roll out of 4GX is that around 20 per cent to 30 per cent of 4G traffic in a 4GX area seamlessly moves to the new service, offering customers with compatible devices typical download speeds never before seen in Australia.
But it also has wider network benefits, with traditional 4G services freed up to also help manage the ever growing demand for data.
We continue to have the largest 4G coverage area in Australia, with coverage now reaching 90 per cent of the Australian population almost a month ahead of schedule. And we are not stopping there as work is underway to bring 4G services to 94 per cent of the Australian population by the middle of this year.
The 4GX roll out will continue across 2015 and new 4GX Coverage locations from 2 January 2015 are outlined below.
