Re: No coverage in penrith

Telstra are adding 5G antennas to tower after tower. In almost all cases, they give the 5G antennas the prime position that the 4G antennas  previously had. This very scenario has occurred where My local tower provided me  marginal 4G signal, and since 5G was added,  is now even more marginal. A close friend who has been a Telstra dealer for 25 years tells me this has been  an extremely common complaint since Telstra started installing 5G.

100%! It’s been **bleep**! I couldn’t even log into services nsw app put the front of the place! Also I’m Jordan Springs it’s even worse! I can’t even have a bloody FaceTime call! So frustrating considering the amount they bloody charge us all for their BS non existent service!!
