Telstra Launches 3G Cellular Services in Australia
Posted on 5-Sep-2005 14:46. | Tags Filed under: News.



Telstra has marked the launch of its new 3G high speed mobile service by giving its customers the chance to watch the video diaries of Australian Idol finalists, as well as access a wide choice of Australian information and entertainment content from their mobile phones.

Telstra's Head of Pioneers Marketing, Mr Mike Robey, said the new Australian Idol video diaries would be added to the site as they became available and would be among a range of new mobile phone content available from Telstra.

"These new high speed mobile services also offer Telstra customers new video features including video calling, video MessageBank and video ring tones," Mr Robey said. "The launch of Telstra's new mobile services represents a major shift in the way our customers can communicate and access information on their mobile phone."

With the launch of its 3G services Telstra will provide access to more than 200 i-mode content sites including video content from NRL, AFL, V8 Supercars and movie trailers from yourMovies. Users will be able to play new online games and send and receive email from their mobile phone from sites including Yahoo! and Telstra BigPond.

Other participants in the launch include eBay Australia and video news clips from TV networks such as National Nine News and Sky News.

Telstra customers can access video services in Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth and Canberra during this initial stage.

New mobile phone models include the Sony Ericsson K600i, NEC N600i, Motorola V975 and the Samasung Z500.

Telstra customers have a choice of four new handsets and two new capped plans. Customers who buy a 3G handset on a repayment option can take up the AU$49 and AU$79 cap plan with a AU$5 per month Mobile Surf and Email Pack and get up to AU$250 or AU$550 worth of standard voice calls, as well as MessageBank, and text messages. Both capped plans offer a two-month introductory free video call offer.

Telstra has partial ownership of another 3G operator in Australia, "3". Vodafone Australia has plans to start operating a 3G service from October 2005.
