Ok.  I have an older Samsung mobile phone.  It's 3G or Next G, what ever.
can the phone be upgraded to 4G without buying a new phone ??  I don't have 4G coverage in my metro area in Perth.
Lot of talk about 5G now.  If I can't get coverage for bloody 4G, should I worry about it.
And here's the extension to my question.  If I can't get 4G in Perth metro, why should I bother about upgrading my phone for towns like Cue, Magnet or Leo or Laverton ?
Buggered if I Know lol!
Cheers
Cliff

Gidday Cliff,

Just a heads up, many of the small towns now have 4G, including Leo, Laverton, Cue and Wiluna. Telstra have been rolling it out steadily through the more remote areas.

Cheers, Rick

Hi Cliff,

HERE is the link to check coverage. 6438 is the zip code for Leo.
Click on the 3G button and then the 4G button.
4G is faster for data but has less range. If you want to go further fron town then 3G is all you get anyway so my advice is spend the upgrade money on prospecting gear.

Well I checked the Telstra coverage maps and I got 2 different answers.  One said I still don't have 4G coverage in my metro area while another said I did  Suspect
But thanks for the answers to my question.  Think I'll just stay with my old phone until such time it stops working lol!
Cheers
Cliff
