Australia's largest 5G network now in more places

We’re on a mission to bring better connectivity to everyone, especially with our 5G.
We’ve made a commitment to roll out our exciting new 5G capabilities to more areas across metro, regional and rural Australia, and that’s exactly what we’re doing.


The best and getting better

Our 5G reaches more than 41% of the Australian population and will expand to reach 75% of the Australian population by the end of June 2021.

Our 5G now covers an area that more than 12 million Australians live, work or pass through on a daily basis. There are more than 60 cities and towns across the country where Telstra’s 5G roll out is now underway.

5G is now rolling out in selected areas on selected plans.

What do I need to get 5G?

You’ll need a 5G device and a 5G-ready mobile or data plan to connect to Telstra 5G. You’ll also need to be in an area that has 5G coverage.
