The CIC provides Telstra’s enterprise and business customers with access to not just an incredibly modern event space, but also access to leading edge technologies and equipment. The centre consists of several different rooms, or zones, each focusing on it’s own element along a journey.

Each customer brought to the CIC has their own tailored, personalised experience. Working with Telstra two weeks prior to the visit, customers discuss their business practices, needs, and pain points allowing their visit to be as productive as it can be.
The CIC is about ‘more than a PowerPoint’ deck, providing real tools and Telstra’s insight to allow customers to be as productive as possible in an interactive, hands-on way. [Read more…]

Review: Netgear AirCard 790s (Telstra Wi-Fi 4G Advanced II)

The Netgear AirCard 790s (also known as the Telstra Wi-Fi 4G Advanced II) is the first device sold by Telstra to support LTE on all current and future bands, and support LTE-A CA (carrier aggregration) across multiple bands. It’s also the first hotspot to carry the new 4GX branding. You’ll always get the fastest speeds possible, today and into the foreseeable future, with support for LTE on bands 1 (2100mhz), 3 (1800mhz), 7 (2600mhz), 8 (900mhz) and 28 (700mhz). And 3G too, so you’re covered everywhere. The 790s also supports LTE-A CA on bands 3+28, 28+7, 3+7 and 7+7 – for typical speeds of between 2Mbps to 100Mbps in a 4GX area. In a standard 4G area, you should see typical download speeds of  2Mbps to 50Mbps.
