With NBN under a cloud due to the latest controversy over building costs, Telstra laughs in the face of the 'National Broadband Network' with an even faster 3G high-speed mobile hotspot.
The perils of fixed fibre cables flapping about in cyclonic winds has been exposed in Townsville, which was 'almost completely fitted out for the NBN', but due to Cyclone Yasi is likely no longer, while Telstra's Next G wireless broadband network (WBN?) was apparently unaffected.
Australia's biggest telco, Telstra, is providing full telco support to the world's biggest chat-show TV star, Oprah Winfrey, ensuring her team is equipped with Telstra's most ultimate of Next G modems and her live audience is equipped with Next G sim-cards in their summer-proof Motorola Defy Android smartphones.
Telstra and Ericsson have announced successful trialling of videoconferencing over LTE between Sydney and Melbourne.
Telstra has launched its 'entry-level' tablet computer, the T-Touch Tab, aiming to conquer the mass market through a basic but workable tablet experience and cheap pricing that is so similar yet so different to the iPad it's clear why they're at opposite ends of what is fast becoming a very profitable scale.
Telstra has become the first telco in the world to launch dual carrier HSPA+ services offering downstream speeds up to a theoretical maximum of 42Mbps.
Will wonders never cease - Telstra is actually doing something about its rather woeful included iPhone 4 data on its plans and, until November 1 this year (if not longer) is actually increasing them! Are you ok, David Thodey?
Telstra wants to tempt the many pre-paid mobile broadband users, some of whom are experiencing dial-up speeds in heavily populated areas on competing networks, with a new 'Telstra Turbo' Next G USB modem and affordable no-contract pre-paid per gigabyte pricing, although naturally still at higher prices than the competition.
iTWire contributor Renai LeMay has beseeched Apple's CEO Steve Jobs to let the iPhone 4 Facetime video conferencing capability to be unlocked for use over Telstra's 3G network, but I'm thankful it's locked to Wi-Fi, and here's why, guys.
Starting today, Monday 7 June, Telstra is streaming ABC1 and SBS One TV channels over the Mobile Foxtel service on its Next G network.
Telstra turned on the upgrade of its Next G network to 42Mbps (theoretical maxium downstream bandwidth) earlier this year and has now revealed that it will be operational in 100 regional centres as well as capital cities as soon as customer devices are available, later this year.
Armidale based RMteK has developed a system, RMCam, for video monitoring of remote locations that combines a camera, motion and other sensors, solar power and Next G wireless modem supported by processing power 'in the cloud'.
Insurance and banking company Suncorp has picked Telstra as its sole provider of mobile voice and data services for the next three years.
