Factors influencing your actual speeds
Data download and upload speeds. The speed you will experience on your mobile device is limited by many factors such as:
- The topography of your location (for example any obstructions of the line of sight to the base station);
- Your distance from the base station;
- The local weather conditions (like extreme heat or heavy rain);
- How many other users are accessing the mobile network from the base station at the same time (i.e., number of concurrent users);
- Whether your device supports the relevant mobile network spectrum bands
- The hardware and software configuration on your device;
- Any speed cap or other restriction applied to your plan; and
- The destination of your internet browsing session (eg a busy web server).
Speed Caps
Speed caps apply to all mobile plans which use the Telstra Wholesale Mobile Network. Available speed caps are 100Mbps, 150Mbps or 250Mbps.  

Check your plan’s Critical Information Summary to find out which speed cap applies.  

It is important to note that the speed cap on your plan is the maximum potential download speed for data included in your recharge/plan.
