Talking about the technical difference. As far as I can tell, they are identical 64K cards with the same capabilities.

Obviously once you activate your 4g SIM, you can access the 4g services, but that is on Telecom's end.

Anyone know of any differences?

Nothing different the reason why you need a new SIM is covered in another thread

Has a slightly different STK in there.

But primarily it's a backend requirement as we are in the process of transitioning from one stack to a new stack as part of 4G/LTE.

So the new 4G SIMs exist in both stacks and the 3G Sims only exist in the old one.

Could go into more technical detail, but that's in effect the reason.

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

No I think it really needed JohnR's response to make it complete :)
