Brisbane, Surfers get Optus 4G

Optus has switched on new 4G sites in Queensland following last month’s launch of its consumer 4G network in Sydney.

Early in September Optus turned on consumer 4G services in Sydney, Perth and Newcastle. The 4G network has been available to Optus’ business customers since July.

It today announced four sites in Surfers Paradise had been switched on, with five more in Brisbane CBD to be launched next week ahead of a wider rollout in December and January. More Surfers Paradise sites will also be turned on in December.

Optus is ahead of schedule for its 4G rollout in the area, previously announcing Brisbane customers would not be able to access 4G until December. It will also upgrade its 3G network and open new 3G sites in south-east Queensland over the coming year.

Currently, Optus 4G coverage in Sydney runs from Bondi to Newington east to west, and from La Perouse to Dee Why south to north.

Perth coverage extends from the city’s airport in the east to City Beach in the west, and south to north from Como to Innaloo; while in Newcastle coverage is available across the city as well as Port Stephens, the Hunter Valley and Lake Macquarie.

In Melbourne, the network runs across Blackburn to St Albans, and from Brighton to Fawkner.
