Telstra has announced a $200 million co-investment fund to generate additional investment in improving regional mobile coverage, in addition to the $150 million it will invest in the next 12 months to improve regional connectivity.
Although 5G is now being well and truly rolled out around the world, the 5G rollout certainly isn't complete, and it's leaving people wanting more.
The 5G wars are in full swing, as both Optus and Telstra make 5G pronouncements today, with Telstra's Commercial Engineering Executive Sri Amirthalingam heralding umlaut publishing its latest benchmarking findings from the first part of 2021.
With Telstra's claim of more 5G in more places in no danger of being beaten by Optus or Vodafone anytime soon, Optus has instead gone for the fastest speeds it can in its 5G coverage areas to challenge Telstra for the Australian 5G speed crown.
Rural and regional customers wanting the best regional coverage and the very latest Samsung smartphones will be pleased to know that the S21 and S21+ have been added to Telstra list of Blue Tick devices.
With one in two Aussies now living in Telstra's 5G coverage footprint, Telstra says this progress shows it is on track to "expand coverage to 75% of the population by the middle of the year" as it adds thousands of 5G devices to its network every week.
A day ahead of Apple's iPhone 12 and 12 Pro arriving at retail tomorrow, Telstra has released information about its new 5G coverage checker, a new AR feature in the MyTelstra app delivering an AR experience around the iPhone 12, and its new trade-in offer for old devices.
OPINION: An article that claims there's a big problem with the new iPhone has itself a big problem, simply because it claims there being no 5G version of the iPhone itself yet, is some kind of actual, real world problem - and it's not even the real issue!
Residents in and around Dulong, Queensland, are now duly celebrating long awaited "new and improved mobile coverage", and it's all "thanks to the Coalition Government’s $220 million Mobile Black Spot Program".
If you're sick of a mish-mash of Wi-Fi routers and extenders in your home not properly giving you whole-house Wi-Fi, then D-Link's new Covr Seamless Wi-Fi mesh networking system promises "seamless coverage to the furthest reaches of any home".
Telstra has made two announcements today, boosting its new Smart Wi-Fi Booster which can be extended with up to four units, while also delivering a new 30-day NBN satisfaction guarantee.
If the lack of Optus mobile coverage in specific locations in NSW, QLD and Tasmania is leaving you feeling black, Optus and the federal government's Mobile Black Spot programme will shine bright white with fresh new coverage.
Presumably in the hope that the regions will go all the way with VHA, the company has delivered expanded 4G coverage in Westdale in Kootingal as part of a $5.3 investment to build 15 new sites in New England this year.
Presumably seeking to imbue its 4G coverage in Tasmania with a bit of Steppervescence, Vodafone Hutchison Australia’s communications nous sees it “investing $5 million in 18 new sites in Tasmania in 2017".
Vodafone has switched on a new mobile site at Kumbia near Kingaroy in regional Queensland, with another site near Boyneside set to follow “in the coming months.”
A total of 85% of companies plan to more closely monitor network and app performance during the summer Games, with slowness and buffering of Channel 7’s Olympics app being complained about online.
Satellite operator SES and Indonesia’s Telkom have formed a new strategic partnership to supply satellite capacity for Indonesia through the SES-9 satellite to meet rising demands for connectivity.
With Telstra having extremely uncharacteristic outages of late, the company once known as Vodafail but which has turned things around massively wants you to join it.
Once again, Australia’s largest telco, Telstra, has been forced to offer its customers a ‘free data day’ in response to yet another failing of its mobile network.
The first communities to benefits from ‘improved mobile coverage’ under the ‘Mobile Black Spot Programme’ are Cheepie and Marlborough in QLD and Deniliquin in NSW.
