Vividwireless expands 4G footprint

Everybody, move close to a university

Vividwireless (which affects a “no capitals” company name that plays with sub-editors’ heads) has announced expanded coverage, adding bits of Adelaide, Brisbane and Canberra to its network.

The company had already rolled out its Huawei-based TD-LTE network in Perth, followed by Sydney and Melbourne.

The new coverage, however, is currently restricted to areas within around 5 Km of the Australian National University in Canberra, the University of Queensland in Brisbane, and the University of Adelaide.

Vividwireless generated much excitement when it demonstrated hundred-megabit-per-second speeds in a media field trial last year. With users on the network, the company’s claims are more prosaic. In its media release, the company says its network is “reliably delivering” average speeds of between 4M bps and 6 Mbps. ®
