Except for the odd black spot when talking about mobile coverage in Australia, the internet data speeds are pretty good. Get ready to tackle that loading screen head-on, as 5G is here! Yes! The shockingly fast internet has made its way to Australia; it is only the third country in the world to be receptive to this technology. The only setback to this news is how 5G is, up until now, only accessible on Telstra and no other network. 7 News reports that other service providers will also get access to the 5G technology in the upcoming few months. 5G provides internet speeds that are between 10 and 20 times quicker than the average 4G, which is impressive, to say the least. According to Telstra’s website, 5G technology teams up with 4G to give consumers the best speeds and the best signals wherever they access the internet. It further states how their 5G devices are also designed such that they support the quickest average 4G speeds in Australia in 4GX coverage regions. Looking at Telstra’s coverage map, it is evident that the service is currently at a very comfortable stage. 5G access is granted to only some of the CBD and its adjacent suburbs. The Gold Coast appears to have the finest coverage. It is only accessible in 12 cities at the moment but in the upcoming months, it will be distributed to about 35 areas. Presently, only phones HTC Hub and Samsung Galaxy S10 5G are suited to the 5G technology. It appears other mobile users might have to wait a bit. Andy Penn, the CEO at Telstra, stated that as 5G continues to advance, more supporting mobiles and technologies will follow. However, to be the very first Australian service provider for 5G, this is a significant step they’ve taken.
