5G network expected by 2020

Australia’s biggest telecommunication companies, including Telstra, Optus and Vodafone, are working together to develop and implement a 5G network throughout Australia by 2020.

Testing of 5G technology has shown speeds to be up to 800 times faster than average 4G network speeds. Market-leading countries, such as South Korea and the United States, are expecting to rollout 5G technology commercially some time in 2017.

The introduction of 5G technology could mean we can have 3D video conversations and downloading movies may only take a matter of seconds.

With the introduction of the NBN eating into telecommunication sectors profits, telcos see 5G as the next revenue source that will sustain healthy profits long into the future. This is good news for consumers for quite a few reasons, the main one being that 5G will be built to handle further expansion of population and devices.

Are you excited to hear our telcos are working together to develop and implement 5G technology in Australia? Do you think you will gain access to 5G technology before the NBN is implemented in your area?
