Using a note 10+ 5G and I have never experienced 5G bandwidth greater that 100mbps on the gold coast, its fast enough really just curious as to why its being shaped or if anyone has faster speeds in the same area. You would think the network has capacity for alot more customers.

With this being a new technology type I wouldn't see the benefits in us having the speeds slowed in a 5G enabled location. All of the information we have available on the 5G rollout including the areas that have been enabled can be located at
If you do continue to have issues with the speeds then this can be reported to our network engineers via the coverage feedback form at

As an early adopter.... you need to appreciate the system is being developed with only 3600 MHz frequencies and very few base stations. Ultimately there will be 26.000MHz frequencies with small cell base stations on local electricity poles virtually in sight.
Thanks for letting me know Mohan3. I checked with Telstra and they told me that I can switch colour but it becomes not "pre-order" and I have to lose my headset... So, you did not do the pre-order, I assume.
I get about 330Mbps in Melbourne CBD (which isn't really that much faster than the 250Mbps I get on 4G).
Flat terrain and a clear line of sight helps in getting good speeds.
5G is more susceptible to interference/blocking by buildings as it operates on higher frequencies (3500MHz) than 4G (which has the benefit of operating on the 700MHz frequency in conjunction with 900MHz, 1800MHz & 2600MHz).
