As the implementation of the 5G is rolled out across the county, many are still opposed to what they see as the network being forced upon.
A Telstra rep says that Murwillumbah has taken a step towards the 5G future as the company switches on the area’s first Telstra 5G base stations, part of our ongoing rollout of Australia’s leading 5G.
Telstra Regional General Manager Mike Marom said the new 5G capacity, and the ongoing rollout, will not only benefit customers with 5G devices in the selected areas that 5G will initially be deployed, but will also benefit customers with 4G devices in the vicinity of new 5G coverage.
‘Telstra has always been dedicated to connecting people in regional Australia and ensuring they are amongst the first to experience the latest mobile technology,’ said Mr Marom.
‘It’s really exciting Murwillumbah is among the first cities in Australia, indeed the world, to have access to 5G connectivity.’
Mr Maron said that with the first 5G sites on air, customers in Murwillumbah have a chance to be part of the cutting edge. ‘Further to this, as we roll out this new 5G technology, it will also improve 4G capacity and speeds.
‘We now have commenced the rollout of 5G in 32 cities around Australia.’
The commencement of the 5G rollout in Murwillumbah is part of Telstra’s commitment to extend 5G coverage to selected areas of 35 major and regional cities across Australia by the end of June 2020.
