When it comes to service and technology, we focus on all Australians – no matter where they are located.
We’re committed to delivering leading telecommunications products and services to our customers in regional, rural and remote Australia. Faster, more reliable connections provide better access to education, health and business services, and can contribute to economic growth.
The Telstra mobile network currently reaches 99.3 per cent of the population and is the largest network in the country, covering 2.4 million square kilometres, thanks to our long term commitment to network investment.
Read more information about our network coverage and the initiatives we have underway to further increase the speed and reach of our networks – such as 4GX and Telstra Air.
In June 2015, we announced that Telstra will build 429 new 3G and 4G towers as part of the Government’s Mobile Black Spot Programme, to better serve our customers in regional, rural and remote parts of Australia. In addition to the new mobile towers, we are also installing 250 Small Cells to deliver high speed 4G data services in country towns where suitable Telstra infrastructure is available. This $165 million program will continue over three years.
