Australia's Telstra carrier, one of the largest telecoms companies in the country, has recently unveiled a new high-speed network that is being touted as the fastest in the world. Activated at the Gigabit Experience Summit in Sydney, the mobile operator's new 4G LTE network is significantly faster than even the advertised speeds of the fastest plans in competing countries like the UK and the US.

Telstra carrier's 4G LTE network is currently only active in Sydney, though the company is planning to roll out the same infrastructure in select other Australian cities in the coming weeks. The network has demonstrated speeds of one gigabit per second downloading and 150 megabit per second uploading. As comparison, the peak download speed for Australia's National Broadband Network is just 100 megabits per second — ten times slower.
