Boost to launch 3G services in Australia in March 2018
The Australian arm of mobile telecommunications giant Boost has announced it will launch 3Gs services in March.
Boost will be providing mobile hotspot service in Australia and New Zealand.
Boost said the service will be available to customers who have already subscribed to its mobile hotspots in the country.
The Australian mobile operator said it will provide “fast and reliable service” to its customers.
Boost said its 3G network is up to 85 per cent faster than its 4G network and it’s “well positioned to deliver more reliable services for our customers”.
Boost said the company will also offer its 3Gs hotspot to consumers who have purchased a mobile hotspad or cellular phone.
Boost CEO Tony De La Torre said the launch of 3G hotspots is important to boost growth and improve customer experience.
“We’re building a new, better mobile phone experience for our users, and to be able to offer this to more Australians, we need to be sure that we are delivering the service and offering the experience that people expect,” Mr De La Torres said.
Boost’s service is designed to help boost the Australian mobile market, which has been struggling to attract new customers.
In December, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission said Boost was failing to comply with its contract obligations and the consumer watchdog also found the company was not making enough payments.
Mr De La Toro said the new 3G service was “a significant step forward for our mobile network”.
Boost also announced plans to build out a 4G LTE network in New Zealand, the US, Australia and the UK.
“The launch of the Boost 3G in New York City and the launch in Australia mark the beginning of a new chapter in the history of our company,” Mr de La Torres said.
“As we continue to work towards the growth and success of our 3G business, we look forward to bringing our customers our first 3G experience in the US and our first 4G experience across New Zealand and the US.”
Boost said customers in Australia will be able use their 3G data connection on a variety of Boost devices.
The company also said its customers can connect to its Boost Mobile Hotspot on a smartphone, tablet or computer.
Boost also launched a 4GB data plan that customers can use on its 3GB hotspot.
Boost Mobile Hotspots will be free for users who subscribe to its 3GHz hotspot plans.
In 2018, Boost launched the Boost Mobile hotspot in New South Wales.
Boost is the world’s biggest mobile operator.
