Do Boost Mobile customers get the same 3G signal as Telstra 3G Mobile Network customers?
Yes, all Boost Mobile customers on the Telstra 3G Mobile Network will have access to the same network. However, Boost Mobile customers will not have access to the Telstra 4G network. Also, to ensure that you get the most out of your service, it is important your handset is compatible with UMTS (3G) 850MHz.
What is the difference between accessing the Telstra 3G Mobile Network through a Telstra wholesale provider or through Boost Mobile?
Boost Mobile has access to the full Telstra 3G Mobile Network (excluding 4G coverage). Customers with a compatible UMTS (3G) 850MHz device can access the same speeds and coverage as Telstra customers, including coverage of around 99.3% of the Australian population. The Telstra Wholesale coverage footprint is slightly less and does not have access to the same range of speeds.
