4G Technology Trials
From the start of 2015, we’re evolving Telstra’s 4G to 700Mhz. This aims to deliver even faster 4G speeds than existing Telstra 4G, stronger signals in buildings, and expanded coverage across regional and remote locations.

Trials are already underway across city and regional areas, including selected parts of:

• Perth, Fremantle and Esperance in Western Australia
• Griffith in New South Wales
• Mildura in Victoria
• Mt Isa in Queensland
