Telstra To Deploy 4G Upgrade By The End of 2011

Telstra’s announcement of its plans to upgrade the Next G network by the end of this year will see the company providing leading edge technology with upgrades to its Next G network with 4G technology in selected areas in the later part of 2011.

With this planned upgrade to its Next G network, Telstra will be the first Australian teleco to utilise Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology on their mobile network in selected cities by the end of the year.

Long Term Evolution technology will allow faster data speeds as well as giving faster response times when using mobile applications or accessing mobile internet.

The upgrades will be in areas where current mobile data traffic is most concentrated and this will help Telstra meet Australia’s growing demand for mobile broadband data, which is doubling every year as more and more customers use mobile internet on their smartphones, tablets and laptops.

Telstra will be using the 1800 MHz spectrum for LTE or 4G services and this will be integrated with the existing Next G 850 MHz high-speed data access service in what Telstra say is a world first.

Although new hardware will be required to access LTE, these new dual technology LTE/HSDPA+ devices will operate on both the 1800 MHz and 850 MHz spectrums, Telstra have stated that these upgrades will not impact current services and existing customers will not be required to change hardware if they do not wish to upgrade.
