Telstra Velocity Network

In Australia, you have various Internet options like fixed-line, fixed wireless, and mobile SIM-only plans. The NBN is the go-to for fixed-line connections, but it can slow down during peak times.

Recently, Telstra Velocity announced a move to the Opticomm upgraded network. This transition will happen region by region over approximately 13 months.

Opticomm is a wholesale subsidiary of Uniti Group Limited, offering various fibre access solutions. When the transition is done, you'll enjoy faster speeds with the Opticomm network while keeping your Velocity plan. Telstra will ensure a smooth transition to minimise disruptions.
