Australian operator Telstra switched on 4GX service today in Melbourne with typical mobile download speeds up to 2 to 100Mbps for customers with compatible devices. The service is available today in parts of Melbourne’s CBD and surrounding suburbs including in St Kilda, Windsor, Albert Park, South Yarra, South Melbourne, Docklands, West Melbourne, North Melbourne, Collingwood, Fitzroy, East Melbourne, Parkville, Elsternwick, Cremorne. 

By January, 4GX services will cover an area spanning three kilometres of the Melbourne GPO and will be expanded across Telstra’s mobile footprint over time. 

4GX uses Telstra’s new 700MHz spectrum and delivers higher typical mobile speeds on compatible devices than exist on its current 4G. It also uses LTE Advanced technology to bring together Telstra’s 1800MHz and 700MHz 4G spectrum bands to provide even higher data speeds on compatible devices.

Customers with 4GX category 6 devices can get typical download speeds of between 2Mbps and 100Mbps. Customers with 4GX category 4 devices can get typical download speeds of between 2Mbps to 75Mbps.
