Optus’ rollout of 4G continues to expand. A handful of sites have gone live in Brisbane and the Gold Coast, ahead of a broader update for both cities scheduled for December and January.
According to Optus’, the 4G network will now work in Brisbane in the following broadly described areas (the coverage maps haven’t been finalised):
- Brisbane CBD North
- Brisbane CBD East
- Brisbane CBD South
- North Quay
- Alice & George St
On the Gold Coast, the area around Cavill Avenue in Surfers Paradise has been activated.
Five more sites will be switched on in the Brisbane CBD next week, and additional locations will be opened in Surfer’s Paradise ahead of the city-wide upgrades in December and January.
Optus’ 4G is now active in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Newcastle. Telstra’s coverage remains broader, but in head-to-head battles we’ve often found Optus to have a significant edge.
