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.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
