5G coverage in selected areas of about 100 cities and towns.
Australian telecommunications service provider Telstra has hit a major milestone in its 5G roll out with more than 50 per cent of Australians now living in its 5G coverage footprint.
Telstra already has more than 750,000 5G devices on the network and is adding thousands of new 5G devices every single week as more customers take up new devices.
There are more than 2,650 Telstra 5G sites on-air across the country, as well as coverage in more than 100 cities and towns and more than 2,000 suburbs across Australia with selected areas of Telstra 5G coverage.
The telco was on track to hit its target to expand coverage to 75 per cent of the population by the middle of the year, said Channa Seneviratne technology and development solutions executive at Telstra.
“We’ve made great progress but there’s still more work to do, which is why we’ve set our teams aggressive roll out targets to bring Telstra 5G to 75 per cent of the Australian population by the end of June this year,” he said.
“We’ve expanded Telstra’s 5G network coverage to even more areas of our big cities, regional centres and country towns and, with more to come, more Australians will be covered by Telstra 5G than anyone else.”
Telstra 5G coverage in selected areas of about 100 cities and towns, including major regional centres in every state including Sunshine Coast, Newcastle, Geelong, Mt Gambier, Launceston and Busselton so our customers can get Telstra 5G in more places.
