Telstra to Upgrade Wireless Broadband speeds in Regional Australia

Telstra has announced that 100 regional towns, including Albury, Wodonga, Bathurst, Mount Barker, Launceston and Alice Springs, will have their wireless broadband speeds doubled by the end of 2011.

The roll-out is focussing on regional areas with a poor fixed line broadband infrastructure, allow local business customers to benefit from new and improved speeds.

Tim Wolfenden, CEO of Make It Cheaper comments: "The dongle itself may go up in price, but it seems that the data cost will stay the same.

This is great news for local small businesses who wil be struggling both with poor broadband speeds, but also with an inability to roam around the local regions with mobile broadband.

This network upgrade is likely to bring some huge benefits to the local business community."
