Australian network Optus have been nominated for, ‘Most Significant Development of a Commercial LTE Network’ in the LTE Asia awards, taking place on the 24th September 2014 at the Marina Bay Sands, Singapore. In this interview with Vic McClelland, Managing Director Networks, we find out what winning the award would mean for team Optus.
What was the original thinking behind the creation of your winning entry?
Since Optus entered the Australian market just over 20 years ago, our unwavering focus on innovation and customer experience has underpinned our investment in our network.
We see 4G as the chance to further highlight that Optus is an innovative and competitive alternative in Australia. We see our first-to-market launch of 700MHz LTE in Australia as a launching pad for Optus’ extension of our LTE network beyond metropolitan centres and into regional Australia.
