What faster feels like.
Telstra 4GX brings you the fastest 4G speeds in Australia. Get speeds up to six times as fast as our original 4G on a compatible mobile device in a 4GX area on Australia’s best mobile network.
What is 4GX?
When analogue television was switched off in Australia, the spectrum it was running on – 700MHz – became available. We took up twice as much of this superior spectrum as any other carrier to deliver you 4GX.
Better in the bush – 4GX uses superior 700MHz spectrum that can go further than previous 4G frequencies, creating extra 4G coverage in rural and regional areas.
More for metro – 4GX offers extra 4G in-building coverage and faster 4G in-building speeds compared to our regular 4G, bringing speedy web access when you use a compatible device in a 4GX area.
LTE-Advanced — a new breed of speed.
We’ve used sophisticated LTE-Advanced technology to bring together our multiple 4G spectrum bands and this means faster speeds for category 6 and higher devices when you’re in a 4GX area.
Double the bandwidth.
4GX doubles our 4G bandwidth so you can use more devices and do more of the things you love at the same time.
Download, stream and share with fewer slowdowns even in crowded places.
Which mobile phones
are 4GX ready?
Some of this year’s most popular smartphones are 4GX-ready. Your compatible phone will automatically switch to 4GX if the network is available.
