  • The reason why the network will be faster is because they have up to 98MHz compared to 2 X 10MHz so Optus can have 4X20MHz Channels plus one 15MHz. Optus have the 10MHz paired that Telstra is using. The problem occurs that Optus only owns spectrum in the capital cites license area so there is no plans to go beyond those license boundary.

    How can Telstra compete in speeds if Optus use the lot.
