What is 4G Plus?

 

Our 4G Plus Network uses the superior 700MHz spectrum and is now available in all Australian capital cities and covers close to 90% of the Australian population.

 

The 700MHz spectrum has the ability to get inside buildings better than some other existing 4G frequencies and allows coverage to extend further in Regional areas.

 

What is LTE Advanced?

 

We’re not just stopping at 4G Plus, we’ve also introduced LTE Advanced which combines the 700MHz frequency with other frequencies like 1800MHz and 2600MHz to make the network pipes bigger. What this means for you is that things can happen faster with bigger pipes.

 

Is my device compatible?

 

To check compatibility, first head to our Mobile Network Coverage page. Once loaded there’ll be a box asking you to select your device. If you’re not sure, you can select ‘Non Optus Device’ and enter in your IMEI number. To get this number, type *#06# into your phones keypad and this will automatically display the number on your screen.

Once you’ve done this you can find your address in the search bar and the coverage map will bring up the coverage relevant to your device. If your device is compatible with our 4G Plus Network the Map Key will indicate that this is available.
