OPTUS 4G PLUS MOBILE NETWORK
FASTER FUN ON 4GPLUS,
OUR FASTEST NETWORK EVER
Bigger – More Fun in More Places
The 4G Plus network is now even bigger, covering close to 90% of the Australian population – available in all capital cities and hundreds of regional and holiday towns. With a compatible device, that means you can enjoy superfast internet in loads of new places.
Better – More Fun Indoors
The 4G Plus Network uses superior 700MHz spectrum that has the ability to get inside buildings better than some other existing 4G frequencies. This superior frequency is available across the majority of our 4G Plus coverage area making it easier to get 4G indoors as well as allowing the coverage to extend further in Regional areas.
Check out our coverage maps where & our handy device selection tool to see what devices provide access to more 4G fun in more areas.
In addition to being faster than 3G Networks, the 4G Plus Network has more spectrum that provides room in the Network to allow more people to do more fun things at the same time.
We’ve also recently introduced some sophisticated technology that combines the frequencies in the 4G Plus Network. Known as LTE Advanced, the technology combines the superior 700MHz frequency with other frequencies like 1800MHz and 2600MHz which has the effect of making the network pipes bigger. Simply, bigger pipes mean things can happen faster for you.
Look out for devices with the ‘Faster Speeds on 4G Plus’ badge and check out some of the areas where we have already rolled out LTE- Advanced across areas of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Canberra and in some Regional towns. Check out our regional and capital city network upgrades.
