Speedy internet arrives for Sunshine Coast residents


There is now better phone reception for Aura and Glenview residents after the installation of two 5G mobile towers.

The new 5G Telstra tower has been switched on at Baringa, as well as a second tower at Glenview.

Federal Member for Fisher Andrew Wallace says both of the growing areas have struggled to get decent reception, until now.

"We've got thousands of people living in that area, in particular Aura, we'll have up to 50,000 people living there.

"Up until a couple of days ago they've had terrible mobile reception, they had a lot of complaints from constituents," Mr Wallace says.

The 5G mobile technology will allow for large downloads to be completed in seconds, as well as seamless streaming of multi-media content.
