Optus today announced it has switched on its first 4G sites for customers in Adelaide – bringing Optus 4G speeds to town just in time for Christmas.
4G services are now available at four sites in the Adelaide CBD.
Günther Ottendorfer, Managing Director of Optus Networks explained that customers with 4G smartphones and tablets already won’t have to wait till Christmas morning to benefit from quicker speeds on the Optus 4G network.
“Adelaide customers can now experience the superfast Optus 4G network when sharing photos and videos with their friends and family, posting updates to social media or finishing off the Christmas to-do list with a little last minute online shopping,” Mr Ottendorfer said.
“2012 has seen Optus undertake one of the largest ever network expansion programmes for our customers with the launch of 4G services in Newcastle, Sydney, Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Perth and Melbourne.”
“The response from customers in other capital cities has been so positive we’ve accelerated the rollout of 4G to Adelaide, several months ahead of schedule,”
“Today demonstrates Optus’ commitment to being a leader in 4G and we look forward to bringing expanded 4G services to our customers across our national mobile network,” Mr Ottendorfer said.
Optus customers on the 3G network in Adelaide will also experience enhanced coverage in 2013 with an upgrade programme designed to bring faster 3G speeds and better indoor reception to more customers than ever before.
Optus 4G is live in selected areas of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Perth, Adelaide CBD and the Greater Newcastle and Hunter regions, and will be extending to other major metropolitan areas as Optus 4G is progressively introduced throughout the mobile network.
