Telstra, in collaboration with Netgear, Ericsson and Qualcomm Technologies, announced that it is bringing the world’s first LTE Advanced Category 11 (Cat 11) device to its customers in Australia. The Telstra WiFi 4GX Advanced III Mobile Broadband Hotspot uses tri-band carrier aggregation technology to support speeds up to 600 Mbps. It supports up to 15 WLAN-enabled devices simultaneously and automatically switches between 4GX, 4G and 3G coverage in areas where 4GX is not yet available. The battery allows customers to connect for up to 11 hours of continuous use or 260 hours on standby.
The early Cat 11-enabled footprint is concentrated on the CBD’s of Eastern Seaboard capital cities; initially Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Canberra, and in selected popular holiday locations. The network reach supporting these Cat 11 speeds will also continue to expand in line with growing mobile data demand.
