The Optus has so far installed LTE equipment operating in the 1800MHz spectrum band at 600 base stations across the country. The Sydney 4G network covers approximately 10km of the CBD, ranging from Lindfield in the north to Botany Bay in the south. The Perth coverage is 20km from east to west of the Perth CBD, and 15km from north to south. Full coverage maps can be found here.
Coinciding with the consumer launch, Optus' first 4G smartphone on offer will be the Samsung Galaxy S III, available on a 24-month plan for either AU$67 per month (with AU$650 worth of calls and SMS and 1.5GB of data), or AU$80 per month (with AU$850 worth of calls and SMS and 2GB of data). The device comes pre-loaded with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, has a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display, a quad-core processor, an 8 megapixel (MP) camera, and a 1.9MP front-facing camera. //zdnet.com
