Sunshine Coast steps into a 5G

Published:

Sunshine Coast has today taken the first steps towards the 5G future as Telstra switched on the town's first Telstra 5G base station, part of the ongoing rollout of Australia's best 5G.

Telstra Regional General Manager May Boisen said Telstra was committed to bringing 5G to more areas of regional Queensland.

"It's really exciting that Sunshine Coast is among the leading regional locations across the country to now have access to 5G connectivity," Ms Boisen said.

"We've made a commitment to roll out Telstra's 5G network to more areas across regional Australia and that's exactly what we're delivering in Sunshine Coast."

"Telstra has always been dedicated to connecting people in regional Australia and ensuring they are amongst the first to experience the latest mobile technology."

"Telstra has been leading the way in pioneering 5G technology with a number of world and Australian firsts – and making 5G technology available to Australian consumers."

"Now with the first 5G site on air, customers in Sunshine Coast have a chance to be part of that cutting edge."

Telstra 5G is already available in several areas in Queensland, including Cairns, Townsville, Mackay, Gladstone, Rockhampton, Toowoomba, Bundaberg, Warwick, Airlie Beach, and Innisfail as well as Brisbane, Gold Coast and Ipswich. Further rollouts and upgrades will occur in the coming months to expand Telstra 5G in the area.

Telstra has commenced the roll out of 5G in more than 60 cities across the country, with 2000 5G sites now on-air across Australia and more than 41% of the population who live within Telstra's 5G footprint.

As Telstra continues its 5G rollout in regional areas including Sunshine Coast, the upgrades will also improve capacity and speeds for Telstra's existing 4G customers.
