Samsung recently announced its dual mode LTE commercial devices capable of seamless Time Division Duplex (TDD-LTE) and Frequency Division Duplex (FDD-LTE) and conducted testing of the dual band versions of the Galaxy S4 mini and Galaxy S4 handsets on the Optus network in Australia.

Optus sales managing director, Rohan Ganeson, said the company will be the first telecommunications carrier in the world to support Samsung’s devices with seamless TDD/FDD-LTE handover technology.

“Optus is pleased to partner with Samsung on this world-first with the rollout of our new superfast 4G TDD-LTE network in Australia. These new smartphones will open up access to significantly more 4G capacity, allowing Optus customers to do more on their phone in more places,” he said.

Optus’ development of new mobile sites, as well as upgrades to existing sites across metro locations will consist of combined TDD-LTE and FDD-LTE technologies, so customers with dual mode 4G devices can access Optus’ superfast 4G network in more places.

The Samsung dual mode Galaxy S4 is scheduled to be available on the Optus network from September, while the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini commercial availability will be announced shortly.

Ganeson also announced that the Optus TDD-LTE network is currently available in Canberra and will be progressively rolled out across Australian metropolitan centres over the next year.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
