Telstra is hard at work building its 5G network, having switched on over 200 5G sites since August last year. These cover 10 cities, including parts of Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Hobart, Launceston, Toowoomba, and the Gold Coast. 5G coverage is primarily available in CBDs at this stage.
Telstra intends to launch 5G in 25 more cities across the next 12 months, including all major regional cities in Australia. This will bring Telstra 5G to a total of 35 cities, initially. Telstra has yet to confirm which cities will be included in this second round of deployments.
And the first consumer-ready 5G device is now available for pre-order: the HTC 5G Hub, a portable WiFi hub that can also function as a mini entertainment system on the go. Of course, the device is no use unless you live, work or are travelling where 5G coverage is available. Here’s Telstra’s 5G coverage maps.
In addition, Australia’s first 5G smartphone – the Galaxy S10 5G – will be available through Telstra on May 28.
Important note to remember
Telstra’s 5G coverage maps below show 5G coverage as purple and 4G coverage as green.
These maps shows approximate 5G coverage and do not include indoor coverage. Speed and performance will depend on a range of factors including radio conditions at your location.
Please note that these maps show where Telstra anticipates it will have 5G coverage by June 30. It’s current 5G footprint is smaller, but sits within those areas.
