Roe­bourne on 4GX mo­bile

Pilbara News - - News - Ali­cia Per­era

Roe­bourne is the lat­est part of the Pil­bara to be­come cov­ered by Tel­stra’s fastest mo­bile net­work.

The 4GX net­work was rolled out in town three weeks ago, giv­ing res­i­dents with com­pat­i­ble de­vices such as the Sam­sung Galaxy S7 and Tel­stra Wi-Fi 4G Ad­vanced III ac­cess to the high­est-speed mo­bile in­ter­net net­work in Aus­tralia.

Most other ur­ban cen­tres in the Pil­bara are al­ready cov­ered by the 4GX net­work, with nearby Kar­ratha re­ceiv­ing ac­cess in 2012, Onslow in 2015 and Tom Price in April.

Tel­stra area gen­eral man­ager Boyd Brown said faster data speeds were a must for re­gional WA as much as metropoli­tan WA.

“The Roe­bourne com­mu­nity is re­ly­ing on mo­bile con­nec­tiv­ity more than ever,” he said.

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

“We’re stay­ing ahead of this de­mand by in­tro­duc­ing 4GX to in­crease net­work ca­pac­ity. This will al­low us to con­tinue to of­fer our lo­cal cus­tomers Aus­tralia’s fastest most re­li­able mo­bile ser­vice.”

The 4GX roll­out con­tin­ues in the Pil­bara, with Cape Lam­bert pos­si­bly one of the next lo­ca­tions.
