Australia's largest telecommunications company Telstra has announced plans to expand its 4G long-term evolution (LTE) network to 66.6 per cent of the population, up from 40 per cent today.
The roll-out over the next 10 months will see 1000 new 4G base stations installed as part of an AU$1.2 billion investment in its network announced earlier this month by CEO David Thodey.
Once completed, coverage in the Sydney CBD will reach 10km to 15km from the Sydney GPO, while in Melbourne, 4G coverage will reach out to between 15km and 20km from the Melbourne GPO.
