Telstra signs 5G deal with Ericsson, tech rolled out in three cities Featured

By

Telstra has announced that Swedish telecommunications supplier Ericsson will be its main partner in rolling out 5G, with an agreement signed by the two companies on Wednesday.

In a statement, Telstra chief executive Andrew Penn said the company was already rolling out 5G technology in its network, and it had been switched on in Adelaide, Canberra and Perth.

“[The] signing marks a strategic partnership that has developed between Telstra and Ericsson over many years, and one that has resulted in nearly 40 world and Australian firsts,” Penn said.

“[The] announcement also coincides with the launch of our 50th 5G-enabled site in Australia. Ericsson has worked closely with us to ensure Canberra, Adelaide and Perth are among the first locations in Australia to be upgraded with 5G technology.”

Ericsson president and chief executive Börje Ekholm, who is visiting Australia this week, said: “Telstra and Ericsson have continued to demonstrate industry leadership through ongoing innovation and collaboration with best-in-class partners needed to build an end-to-end 5G ecosystem.

Together we have put in place the fundamentals that will enable Telstra to succeed in 5G. Through our extensive collaborative efforts, we will ensure Australia is at the cutting edge of mobile technology.”

Adelaide’s first mobile base station to be upgraded to 5G is located in Flinders Street, with Perth’s first going live at Narrows Bridge in the Perth CBD.

Canberra’s first 5G base station upgrade is at Pialligo, with other sites coming online on Thursday at Phillip, Lyons and two sites at Fyshwick.

The base station upgrades mean that Telstra has now upgraded 50 base stations to 5G technology across the country. Other locations include Brisbane, Toowoomba and the Gold Coast.

“Telstra has a history of investing ahead of the technology curve to ensure we have the latest capabilities in place to serve our customers," Penn said.

"We're proud to partner with Ericsson to pioneer 5G technology in this country and to ensure that together we continue to deliver market leading innovation in networks.”
