Our maps depict approximate 5G coverage only and do not include indoor coverage. Speed and performance, and whether a 5G device uses the available 5G depends on network and device interactions and prevailing radio conditions at your location. Outside of 5G coverage, 5G devices will continue to use our fastest available 4G, or 3G where 4G is unavailable. Find out more about our coverage.

The 5G symbol appearing on the device represents that 5G is available on the network in the vicinity of the device. Whether the device uses the available 5G depends on network and device interactions and prevailing radio conditions at your location.


How 5G enhances 4GX

Illustration of everyday use

5G combines with 4G technology to provide customers the best possible speeds and coverage wherever they are. Our 5G is built upon the firm foundation of our superfast and extensive 4GX coverage which is why Telstra has Australia's largest, fastest and reliable mobile network.

Our 5G devices not only provide access to Australia’s first 5G, but are designed to support Australia’s fastest average 4G speeds in 4GX coverage areas.
