Optus switches on 4G LTE network

New network now available across areas in Newcastle, Port Stephens, the Hunter Valley and Lake Macquarie.

Optus has launched its 4G LTE network across areas in Newcastle, Port Stephens, the Hunter Valley and Lake Macquarie.

The telco announced its intention to build a 4G network in September last year. It’s chief rival, Telstra, already has its 4G network up and running in a number of locations across Australia.

Optus customers in selected 4G covered areas will be given access into the telco’s network for free in exchange for performance feedback.

“By working with our customers to gather feedback, Optus aims to continually enhance its 4G network and ensure customers have an outstanding experience now, and into the future,” Optus network managing director, Gunther Ottendorfer, said in a statement.

Participating residential consumers will be allocated 4G wireless dongles while business customers will receive WiFi adaptors.

The company’s 4G capital city rollout across Sydney, Melbourne, and Perth will be completed by mid year.

Brisbane and Adelaide will receive services in 2013.

The 4G network is being marketed towards residential and business customers.

Optus plans to release 4G compatible mobile handsets in the coming months
