Optus adds 4G sites In Surfers Paradise and Brisbane CBD

Wider 4G rollout scheduled for Brisbane later in the year plus additional 3G services for south-east Queensland

Optus has activated its first 4G sites for customers in Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast and in the Brisbane CBD.

The telco said it has enabled 4G services at four sites in Surfers Paradise, in readiness for the growing number of holidaymakers travelling with 4G tablet and handset devices.

It will also switch on additional 4G sites at Surfers Paradise in December.

In Brisbane, Optus will switch on five additional 4G sites from next week in selected areas of the CBD, ahead of a wider 4G rollout to the city in December 2012 and January 2013.

Optus managing director of Networks, Günther Ottendorfer, said, “2012 has seen Optus undertake one of the largest ever network programmes for our customers, with the completion of large scale 3G network enhancements and the launch of 4G services in Newcastle, Sydney, Perth and Melbourne.

“With the success of these initiatives, we have managed to accelerate network rollout to deliver Optus 4G to select areas of the Gold Coast and Brisbane nearly six months ahead of schedule, with more sites to come online before the end of the year.”

Optus' 3G users will also see improvements in the service with further upgrades and new sites planned across south-east Queensland over the next 12 months.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
