What’s The Difference Between 3G And 4G?

WHAT IS 4G?

The "G" stands for "generation", so "4G" means "fourth generation" mobile network technology. While 3G was a leap from 2G that enabled Web browsing, as it made faster data transfers possible, 4G is a leap again.

With 4G you get high-speed mobile internet, so you can do more when using a compatible 4G phone, tablet or modem, such as faster web browsing, uploads and downloads, and a better video viewing experience. Right now, you'll still use the 3G network for making calls but your device will choose the best network for your data needs, based on where you are.

We’re Bringing 4g To As Many Places As We Can

We've been busy making our 4G Plus network much, much bigger. It’s now available in parts of all capital cities, plus hundreds of metropolitan, holiday and regional towns, and we keep expanding. If you're not in an Optus 4G Plus network coverage area yet, chances are you will be soon.
