What's it like using a smartphone in the county with the world's fastest LTE networks? Despite having hardware with incompatible bands of LTE, there were no complaints from my girlfriend and I during our vacation in Australia these past two weeks.
Back in the spring
I wrote about an OpenSignal report naming Australia as the country with the fastest LTE speeds overall, an average of 24.5 Mbps for download. Maybe that doesn't sound so fast, but remember that it's an average of four carriers. Based on price (and convenience) we went with two prepaid SIMs from the country's number two carrier in terms of speed. Here's how we got on.
