Your switching to Telstra?? Don't believe all that they say.
Sure, they have the largest 4G coverage, however Optus will be expanding it's 4G coverage as well. And both are the same speeds.
Also Telstra are great in the country, but their metro coverage isn't any better than Optus - and in some places it's worse.
And their deals are the worst value for money!

No - I'm not an Optus employee, I'm a Telecoms Manager and have had a lot of experience with all three of these carriers. Optus may not be fantastic and has it's short comings, but the overall product and value offerings are better...except where Virgin undercuts them :-)
