Inverell is taking a step into the future, with 5G towers from Telstra finally switched on.
Mike Marom, Regional General Manager for Telstra in NSW, said Inverell was one of 60 new 5G sites added weekly across the country.
"It's really exciting to roll out Telstra 5G connectivity in Inverell, meaning customers with 5G mobile devices can enjoy a better mobile experience," he said.
"There are more than one million 5G devices already connected to the Telstra network and thousands more 5G devices being added every week."
He said Telstra was "pioneering the way forward" with 5G technology, making it available to regional customers.
"People living in Inverell now have a chance to be part of that cutting edge."
The recent 5G network upgrade will also deliver improved 4G capacity and speeds in the local area.
There are now more than 3100 Telstra 5G sites on-air in more than 160 cities and towns, with coverage available in more than 2450 suburbs across the country.
More than 60 per cent of Australia's population now lives in Telstra's 5G footprint and Telstra has made a commitment to roll out its 5G network to 75 per cent of the population by the end of June 2021.
