Is anyone else having problems with Telstra? When I try to look at my emails, all I get is "cannot retrieve emails, try again later".

It must have been a temporary thing as it is working normally now but thanks for the link to Telstra outages.

Every time I see a Telstra ad for their 5G network I have to laugh. They can't even get full coverage for the 4G one. I still get black spots in regional Australia.
Very poor.

Maybe Telstra thinks they can bambozzle us with all their advertising!
All this fantastic technology but they seem to be skimping on the basics.

Son lives in the northern suburbs of Sydney, and simply cannot get mobile coverage, 2,3,4,5G.

The fact he is down the bottom of a gully, in theory, should not matter, but to get coverage in some spots would need extra stations for just a couple of people.

The highest town in England, which shares its name with my family, is currently being upgraded to 5G.

Of course, this isn't being done by any of the major providers, but by a community-based enterprise. In a lot of the area you can't get a mobile phone signal of any type, but the locals can have a silly-speed data connection.

Unfortunately, the UK currently forbids within-country roaming, so visitor's don't get full benefits, though the wifi in their accommodation is likely to have impressive speeds.
Looking at ALSTON in south Ribble area, ALSTEAD and DONBAVAND/DUNBABIN etc. everywhere, HOWCROFT and MARSH in Bolton and Westhoughton, PICKERING in the Whitehaven area.

WHAT :-X :-X :-X :-X

You had better have words of the appropriate sort with ALL politicians, and tell them to be as good as the old colony, which does allow roaming.

Their answers to lack of coverage are usually the weather, or my phone. Funny thing is, it always happens in the same spots: just past Yongala, near Caltowie, and around Gladstone. Even mobile coverage can be affected.
