Narooma's 5G technology switched on after October tower works

Narooma's 5G technology switched on after October tower works

Telstra says 5G coverage in Narooma has been switched on after works last month disrupted the town's phone coverage for almost a week.

5G technology has been rolled out around Australia since it was first on our shores in 2019, and Narooma stands to be the fourth town in the Eurobodalla Shire to receive the coverage.

According to a Telstra 5G map, 5G coverage now includes the entire township of Narooma and reaches north of the Wagonga Inlet to the southern tip of Warbler Crescent and south past Glasshouse Rocks Road.

Narooma joins Batemans Bay, Broulee, and Moruya in having 5G coverage in the Shire.

Last month Telstra worked on the mobile base station on the water tank in Wagonga Street, causing some disruptions to phone connections in the region.

A Telstra spokesperson said now that 5G technology is in Narooma, it also benefits people on a 4G plan.

"The roll out of 5G connectivity for the first time in Narooma means customers with Telstra 5G mobile devices will be able to enjoy a better mobile experience," they said.

"The upgrade also brings added benefits for customers on the Telstra 4G network with more capacity, providing better network connectivity and less congestion in Narooma when it's busier."
