“One of our main focuses this year is continuing to expand our 5G coverage so we can bring it to more areas across the Gold Coast and Queensland,” Ms Boisen said.

“We’re also seeing a more choice in handsets and devices made available to our customers, and more and more applications making use of the advantages that 5G has to offer.

“5G is delivering faster download speeds, lower latency and greater network capacity to our users which is especially important in busy areas on the Gold Coast and its surrounds.

“It’s not just 5G users experiencing the benefits of this roll out – by upgrading our sites to 5G we’re also bringing network benefits to other users including greater capacity for 4G customers.”
