Telstra this week announced the launch of Australia's first 5G mobile device, the HTC 5G Hub. The HTC 5G Hub is available to order online and will be available from Telstra Stores on 28th May.
The HTC 5G Hub is the world’s first 5G/4GX media hotspot. It functions equally as a secure mobile corporate solution and a family entertainment hub that can leverage 5G to stream shows and games to your TV in 4K.
Telstra’s 5G rollout aims to bring the technology to areas where it matters most to customers. Its current footprint focusses on CBD locations and selected regional centres that over 4 million people live, work or pass through every day. Throughout 2019, Telstra will be extending its 5G footprint even further to cover more cities, selected regional areas and traffic hotspots, ensuring even more Australians can access Telstra’s leading 5G technology.
Andrew Penn, CEO, Telstra
Since 2016, we have been working with some of the world’s leading technology brands to ensure Australians are among the first in the world to be able to access 5G. HTC has been a key partner for Telstra, innovating new technologies and driving greater connectivity for our customers.
Thomas Dexmier, Country Manager, HTC Australia and New Zealand
With the HTC 5G Hub, customers will be able to experience the power and speed of Telstra’s 5G network in an innovative device, that combines the advanced capabilities of a mobile hotspot with the versatility of the Android operating system, allowing them to connect at home, at work, and on the go.
