Residents and businesses in Narangba, Caboolture, Morayfield and Ningi will soon have more options when choosing a 5G network provider.
Optus and Vodaphone are continuing their 5G expansion into the Longman electorate with a series of mobile tower upgrades under way.
Optus has plans to install 5G infrastructure on existing towers at Raynbird Rd, Narangba; Male Rd, Caboolture; Oakey Flat Rd, Morayfield; and at Bribie Island Rd, near Browns Rd.
Vodaphone meanwhile is also planning to add 5G capabilities to the Raynbird Rd mobile tower at Narangba as well as the tower at Bribie Island Rd, near Theo Greene Park.
This new infrastructure would operate alongside the Telstra 5G network in several locations, resulting in more options for customers when choosing a mobile provider.
Federal Member for Longman Terry Young said it was great news for businesses and residents in these areas who would benefit from the additional capabilities of 5G over 4G and 3G networks.
“I have been working with the major telcos for some time to get improved mobile coverage in the Longman electorate and I welcome any upgrades such as these,” Mr Young said.
“Having more options for customers is healthy in regard to competition among the major telcos.
“Residents who continue to experience poor mobile phone service at home can contact my office at email@example.com or participate in the 2021 Regional Telecommunications Independent Review which is currently under way,” Mr Young said.
“This independent review is a great opportunity for locals to have their say on telecommunications issues.”
