Telstra has launched its 4GX services across Rockingham, Shoalwater, Safety Bay, Waikiki and Rockingham Beach, with local residents now able to access one of the world’s fastest mobile networks.

The rollout of the latest 4G service in the area means increased capacity for the local mobile network with improved and more consistent data speeds.

“4GX means locals will get far better coverage with their mobiles with reliability and consistently fast speeds even as more people, more devices and there’s more activity on Telstra’s mobile network,” Telstra area manager Boyd Brown said.

“People are relying on mobile connectivity more than ever.

“The explosion in applications, shift towards mobile video consumption and use of mobiles in commerce means demand for connectivity continues to grow strongly,”

Mr Brown said 4GX was based on Telstra’s new 700MHz spectrum as well as using sophisticated LTE advanced technology to bring together Telstra’s 1800MHz and 700MHz spectrum to supercharge web speeds on compatible devices.

People using compatible devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Telstra Wi-Fi 4GX Advanced III in 4GX areas are set to enjoy typical download speeds of 5 to 150Mbps.
