TPG Telecom opens Innovation Lab in Sydney Wednesday, 7 July 2021 – TPG Telecom has opened an Innovation Lab at Glebe in Sydney to drive product and technology innovation, including network virtualisation and emerging 5G applications for industry. The new facility is a first of its kind for TPG Telecom and will provide a single integrated site for vendors to trial their emerging 5G related technologies.
TPG has called a halt to its $600 million mobile network build, blaming the Government's ban on the use of Huawei equipment, but that may only be half the story...
Australia's third and fourth largest telecommunications companies, TPG Telecom and Vodafone Group's local subsidiary have confirmed they merge "to create a more effective challenger to Telstra and Optus."
Telstra has appointed Nikos Katinakis, currently at the Indian mobile carrier Jio, to head its new restructured joint Networks and IT function.
Telstra and TPG have begun publishing performance data which allows consumers to compare fixed line NBN speeds with fixed wireless NBN speeds.
TPG has almost 600 mobile tower sites in proposal stage, as the carrier begins to deliver on its plans to aggressively enter the 4G market. This represents 30 percent of its proposed mobile network.
