Telstra’s newly named “4GX” service is set to deliver faster mobile internet speeds and extra 4G coverage as it is rolled out across various areas of Australia.Telstra states 4GX will include services provided over its new 700 MHz spectrum, delivering higher typical mobile speeds on compatible devices (between 2 Mbps and 100 Mbps), providing “more reliable connections and ultra-fast mobile internet”.

Compatible devices include Samsung’s Galaxy S5, the soon-to-be-released Galaxy Note 4, and Apple’s iPhone 6 and iPad Air 2.

4GX will also combine Telstra’s 1800 MHz and 700 MHz bands to “provide even faster 4G mobile web speeds on compatible devices”.

Already available in parts of Sydney, Adelaide, Perth and Darwin, along with a number of regional centres, Telstra today switched on 4GX services in parts of Hobart.

The rollout will continue in a number of areas this week, including selected parts of Brisbane, with Telstra stating it will bring the service to all capital CBD centres (within three kilometres of the GPO) and 50 regional locations by January 1, 2015.

Andrew Volard, Telstra director of devices, stated 4GX will serve as the foundation for the introduction of extra mobile calling features such as Voice over LTE (VoLTE), HD video calling and multimedia calling using VoLTE technology in the future.

“4GX sets a new benchmark in mobile internet speeds in Australia, allowing people to download, share, stream and connect faster and more reliably than ever,” Volard stated.

“Customers using devices such as the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Telstra Wi-Fi 4G Advanced II in 4GX areas are set to enjoy top speeds twice as fast as those available on our existing 4G.”

Volard added 4GX will allow customers to experience 4G in more places, offering extra in-building coverage and creating better 4G coverage in rural and regional areas than Telstra’s existing 4G.
