Telstra Starts 5G on the Gold Coast

in News, 5G, Telstra

Australian carrier Telstra has switched on 5G technology across selected areas of the Gold Coast. The operator plans to launch more than 200 5G-capable sites around the country by the end of 2018.

This rollout enables the operator to test 5G pre-commercial devices in real-world conditions and use cases like Connected Car to test 5G footprint. It also means the operator can connect compatible commercial 5G devices for customers in 5G areas as they become available.

Telstra’s rollout of 5G is underpinned by around $5 billion in mobile network investment over the three years to 30 June 2019, consistent with previous guidance, to enhance the capacity, capability and reach of Telstra’s network.

This investment is a key element of Telstra’s T22 strategy, which will help Telstra to lead the Australian market by simplifying its operations and product set, improving customer experience and reducing its cost base.
