Introducing 4GX a new breed of speed

We’re turning on our new, superfast, 4G service- 4GX. It’s a new breed of 4G that uses superior 700MHz spectrum to give you access to the fastest 4G speeds on your device in Australia – making everyday tasks faster and new things possible. With 4GX, you can now download, upload, share and stream sport (and movies, and music, in fact anything else you like) at turbo charged speeds. You just need to be in a 4GX area, with a compatible device.

 We’re currently trialling 4GX in a number of cities and regional areas across Australia.  Look out for updates on where we are live with 4GX, and get ready to experience the fastest 4G on your device in more places on Telstra.
