Samsung Galaxy S8 & S8+

Samsung S8 and S8 Plus

The new Samsung Galaxy S8 is considered by many to be the best all-round phone on the market right now.

And with one of these big devices in their hands, Telstra customers get to be among the first in the world to experience a 1Gbps speed capable (category 16) smartphone +.

The new Galaxy phones boast upload speeds up to 50 per cent faster than previous Galaxy smartphones in Australia in 4GX coverage areas.

Telstra customers will also benefit from Wi-Fi voice calling for extended in-building coverage and faster 4G call set up times.

Telstra’s network (in selected areas) is one of the world’s first gigabit-enabled networks so in selected areas, lucky Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8+ owners could experience smartphone data speeds among the fastest in the world.

Telstra Wi-Fi calling will automatically transfer mobile calls on the new Galaxy phones between Telstra’s 4G network and Wi-Fi (even while the call is in progress) and allow owners to make and receive mobile calls in Australia wherever there’s an accessible Wi-Fi connection– extending voice coverage to places in a home or apartment where a mobile signal may not reach.

And, 4G voice calling will provide Galaxy owners quicker call set-up times, high definition voice quality and a faster web browsing experience when on a call.
