Telstra is committed to providing improved and expanded mobile coverage to regional, rural and remote Australia. We’re excited to bring high-speed mobile internet to even more communities around the country.
What is 4GX?
Telstra’s 4GX service brings extreme speeds and extra 4G coverage to a range of communities across the nation. It provides increased capacity for the local mobile network, giving locals improved and more consistent data speeds. We’re upgrading our mobile network in hundreds of regional locations to 4GX, bringing super-fast mobile coverage to some of the most remote communities in the country.
What is the Mobile Black Spot Program?
The Federal Government’s Mobile Black Spot Program is one of the largest ever expansions of mobile coverage in regional and rural Australia. Over approximately three years, Telstra is building 577 new mobile base stations, generating $490 million worth of co-investment in rural and regional Australia.
