A spokeswoman for T-Mobile, which is testing the trial, said the trial is not yet set to be completed and it was too early to comment further.
A representative for the US Federal Communications Commission told The Australian Financial Review the agency was working with the company on the trial.
“We’re continuing to evaluate all the options, including potential trials,” she said.
“There are a number of options available to T-Mo that include a trial with a wireless carrier and T-Mobility.”
T-Mobile said it had been given permission to start testing the trials in Australia, but it was not clear whether it would be permitted to start trials in the state.
T-Mobilities trials in NSW, Victoria and Queensland will begin in the coming weeks, while trials in New South Wales and South Australia will be completed in early March.
The trial will see T-Mobiles testing out its 4G network and offering customers free 2G and 3G internet, plus unlimited voice and data.TAMPA, Florida-based T-mobile has launched the nationwide 4G trial, which it said would begin in January 2020.
