Adaptive Mobility Accelerator

For faster speeds during high bandwidth work activities

Accelerator optimises your data speed providing a speed uplift on our 4G and 5G networks when using your shared monthly data allowance. ​

You will notice the benefits of Accelerator more when undertaking high bandwidth tasks such as video streaming or downloading large files and when in areas of higher customer demand on the network.

Key Features

Help unlock faster speeds

The Accelerator add-on provides a typical download speed uplift ranging from 15% to 100% during medium to high 4G/5G network traffic conditions (like in busy or crowded places) compared to our standard Adaptive Mobility plans. This can provide a benefit during bandwidth intensive tasks, like downloading large files or multi-device tethering (it won’t provide a benefit during tasks that require less bandwidth like checking emails). Accelerator is available to add-on to our Adaptive Mobility plans.

Unleash 5G

Accelerator can help you get the full potential of our 5G network on compatible devices. Telstra has the largest 5G coverage of any mobile network in Australia with 75% of the population covered by Telstra 5G. Our 5G now covers more than 3,200 suburbs and over 200 cities and towns across Australia.

Uncap your mobile experience

If your Adaptive Mobility plan has a speed cap for included plan data, the Accelerator add-on will remove that speed cap. For all customers, speeds will still be capped at 1.5Mbps once you have exceeded your monthly data allowance (which is not suitable for HD video or high speed applications, and means some webpages, video/social media content may take longer to load) and may be further reduced during busy periods.


You’ll have access to a dashboard showing how your active daily average speed with Accelerator compares to the daily average speed that we estimate a user on our network in similar radio conditions would have experienced without Accelerator.

Improved speed experience
