Woolworths and Telstra partner on new mobile service

Re-enters the MVNO space following its partnership with Optus

Woolworths will re-enter the mobile space as a mobile virtual network operator on parts of Telstra’s 3G network.

The two companies signed a wholesale agreement allowing Woolworths to resell parts of Telstra’s network using the 850MHz and 2100MHz spectrum bands.

These 3G bands cover 98.5 per cent of the Australian population with reception.

The service will likely rival that offered by supermarket chain Aldi, which is also an MVNO using the Telstra network.

Woolworths previously offered mobile services on the Optus network until the carrier chose not to renew the agreement.

Details on Woolworths’ services and pricing are expected to be revealed in “the coming weeks”.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
