Telstra clears last microwave links out of 4G band

[Microwave links] were used to backhaul voice and data services, often to enable Telstra to meet its universal service obligations (USO) when links were daisy-chained to stretch deep into remote parts of Australia.

Today, Telstra has whittled the number of links still active in the 1800 MHz band to just 34, and the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) revealed overnight they are likely to be cleared from the band before long.

[But wouldn't it be nice to know what Telstra (et al.?) replaced it with, on the stretches 'deep in remote parts of Australia'?!]
