Will push for capabilities on existing LTE networks.

The federal government has quashed calls from public safety agencies for a dedicated LTE network, today saying it would adopt the recommendations of a Productivity Commission report that suggested using existing telco networks.

Looks like we'll end up being on Land Mobile Radio for a lot longer as a result of this, as existing infrastructure does not work everywhere that WAERN/WAPOLRAD/ whatever else the other states are using do.

I don't mind that prospect at all.

I saw this mentioned on the news last night - Telstra giving priority to emergency services on Their LTE mobile network.

Telstra using drones to inspect their mobile towers after bushfires was also mentioned in the story.
