Apple Australia has agreed to post signs wherever its new tablet computer is sold clarifying the device does not work on Australian fourth-generation mobile networks.
Telstra operates a 4G network using long-term-evolution (LTE) technology at 1800 megahertz, while Vividwireless operates a 4G network using WiMax technology at 2.3 gigahertz.
Apple’s new iPad works on 4G networks tuned to 700 MHz or 2. 1 GHz – frequencies only used the United States and Canada. It still operates on Australian 3G networks.
The tech giant has also agreed to email anyone who purchased the new iPad stating the limitation and to offer refunds to consumers.
Also Telstra currently at time of posting doesn’t support iPad being a Personal Hotspot. This feature is locked in Australia at this time..
