Four hundred new Queensland 5G sites are now on-air, with around 280 suburbs across the state achieving at least 50 per cent coverage.
Around 80 suburbs in Greater Brisbane and more than 200 suburbs in regional Queensland, including the Gold Coast, Cairns, Townsville, Mackay, Ipswich and Toowoomba, can now access at least 50 per cent coverage from Telstra 5G.
Telstra Regional General Manager, May Boisen, said the rollout would continue into more Greater Brisbane suburbs and across the state in the coming months.
“We’ve reached a milestone with our 400th Telstra 5G site on-air in Queensland and we’re reaching more and more people with the next generation of mobile technology,” Ms Boisen said.
“Every week we’re expanding Telstra 5G to more Greater Brisbane suburbs and into Queensland’s regions so that as more 5G devices go on sale, our customers can have the latest devices on Australia’s best network.”
There are now more than 1,500 Telstra 5G sites on-air across selected areas of 53 Australian cities and towns.
New data has shown Brisbane CBD was the second highest suburb for data consumption in Telstra’s 5G coverage footprint across the entire country.
Rounding out the other most data-hungry suburbs in Queensland were Southport, Surfers Paradise, South Brisbane and Main Beach.
“While it’s more important than ever for Australians to be connected, it’ll be even more critical in the future as we roll out our 5G network which is bringing faster speeds, greater capacity and a wealth of new uses to our customers,” Ms Boisen said.
