Telstra switches on 5G network in Yeppoon

Yeppoon residents can expect improved mobile internet speeds, with 5G network towers from Telstra switched on.

The network upgrade means 5G services are now available across large parts of Yeppoon for the first time, bringing faster download speeds, greater capacity during periods of high demand and lower latency.

The upgrade will also deliver improved 4G capacity and speeds in the local area.
