Changes to the Telstra Velocity Network are starting soon
On 24 December 2020, Telstra sold its Velocity Network to Uniti Group Limited, to be operated by Opticomm, its wholesale subsidiary. Over the coming months, Opticomm will be upgrading the network and become the new network access provider.
Opticomm is a wholesale provider and will not be the retailer of services on the upgraded network. Instead, Opticomm have a list of retail service providers who are able to help customers take advantage of the upgraded network. Like nbn, customers will continue to receive services from their preferred phone and internet provider - such as Telstra.
You can still join the Velocity network
Telstra Velocity is still open for business! You can join Velocity network now and simply transition to the Opticomm network when the time comes.

Why choose Telstra for home internet?
Australia's best home Wi-Fi experience
Get more Wi-Fi speed, on more devices, in more corners of your home with the new Telstra Smart Modem 3
Get it all in one place
Your home needs to be wired specifically for Telstra Velocity services to operate. We can’t guarantee your service delivery if your home doesn’t meet the Telstra Velocity cabling requirements.
Discuss your wiring needs with your builder and make sure your builder is aware that you live in a Telstra Velocity area.
When lots of people use the internet at the same time, such as between 7pm and 11pm, internet speeds can become slower. Actual speeds experienced will be lower due to a range of factors including location, equipment, software, data source and internet traffic. Speeds may be slower when your devices are connected via Wi-Fi rather than a network cable.
Foxtel is only available in Foxtel areas.
Telstra Smart Modem: Mobile backup is available to premises in 4G coverage areas. Check coverage at telstra.com/coverage. Your mobile backup connection is capped at speeds of up to 25Mbps for downloads and 2Mbps for uploads. Actual speeds may be lower due to local conditions and content accessed.
