    I know 3 Mobile uses 2100MHz for UMTS and Telstra use 850MHz for UMTS but
    what GSM bands do the various carriers use? Also, what UMTS band are optus
    and vodafone going for?

    900 MHz primarily for old GSM, with some 1800 MHz for infill. A
    phone with 1800 MHz but no 900 MHz may not even be able to
    register.

    All non-Testra Australian UMTS is 2100 MHz.

    900 primary, 1800 secondary.

    900 supposedly, because it'd be cheaper to meet their GSM coverage with
    900 than it would 2100. They obviously have their shared 2100
    infrastructure at the moment.

    Tel$tra actually share 3's 2100 MHz UMTS Network as well.

    Gaah, that would mean we have YET ANOTHER UMTS frequency on this planet.
    (along with the 850 and 2100 this country uses, 1900 is used elsewhere)

    No, 1900 is only used in the Americas. 2100 is the "standard" UMTS frequency
    elsewhere.

    They're all part of the "standard". 2100 is just the most popular.

    Just wait for a "world phone". 850/900/1800/1900 GSM with EDGE and
    850/900/1700/1900/2100 3G with HSDPA...

    Standard was a poor choice of word. 2100 would be the most popular.
    Is 1900 used for UMTS anywhere ?

    They dont "share" each.

    It is owned by an entity, 3GIS, which Telstra and 3 jointly own

    Um... so it's used by 3 and Telstra, right?

    Sounds like it's "shared" to me.

    You missed the point.

    The original OP wrote "Telstra shares 3's network"

    This is not the cause. They both share an entity owned equally by both. That
    is the difference
