We know that on any given day, you might want to switch between different roles instantaneously, whether you’re commuting to work or catching up with friends or family.

Things you need to know:
* All references to Australia’s fastest network are based on national average combined 3G/4G mobile speeds.
Telstra Mobile Network offers 4GX in all major and regional cities and in over 1,600 towns and communities around Australia. In other coverage areas in Australia, you’ll automatically switch to our fastest available 3G or 4G. Speeds vary for reasons like location, distance from base stations, terrain, user numbers, hardware/software configuration, download source and upload destination. If multiple users connect to a Wi-Fi device, speeds will be less. Check coverage at telstra.com/coverage.
