4G in Australia: The state of the nation
Virgin Mobile’s 4G uses its parent company's network and is available in some areas in Sydney, Newcastle, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth.
Outside those areas, customers will revert to Optus' 3G dual band network.
David Scribner, Virgin Mobile Australia marketing director, recently told Computerworld Australia that the company is focused on mobile services and the next generation of 4G.
