Optus 4G pricing plans

Optus has launched its 4G network in Sydney, Perth and Newcastle. 4G services in Melbourne will start from September 15.

Consumer Australia CEO, Kevin Russell, said the launch marked the beginning of Optus’ national 4G network rollout.

To coincide with the launch of its 4G network, Optus will be the first carrier in Australia to launch Samsung’s most powerful 4G smartphone to its customers.

The Samsung Galaxy S III 4G will be available for pre order from today here.

Areas covered by the Optus 4G Network initially are:

  • Sydney: Coverage stretches from Bondi in the east to Newington in the west and from La Perouse in the south to Dee Why in the north.
  • Perth: Coverage stretches from Perth Airport in the east to City Beach in the west and from Como in the south to Innaloo in the north.
  • Newcastle: Coverage is available across Newcastle, as well as in Port Stephens, the Hunter Valley and Lake Macquarie areas.
  • Melbourne: From September 15, coverage will stretch from Blackburn in the east to St Albans in the west and from Brighton in the south to Fawkner in the north.

Optus’ 4G launch builds on its recent 3G network enhancement project that has resulted in stronger 3G performance for Optus mobile customers across regional centres and major capital cities.

“In addition to today’s launch of the Samsung Galaxy S III 4G, Optus customers can also purchase the Optus 4G USB modem or portable Wi-Fi modem. With a great line up of 4G devices now on offer, Australians now have a choice in competitive 4G products and services,” Russell said.

To coincide with the launch of its 4G network for Australian consumers, Optus is bringing four of the fastest people in the world to Australia to showcase what you can do faster with 4G.

The Optus ‘Fast Four’ hold long standing Guinness World Record titles for being the fastest in their area of expertise including rapping, texting, talking and reading.
