Where Is 5G Available in Australia? (Updated for 2022)

5G is available for mobile and home use.

5G networks in Australia are emerging, but not yet accessible to everyone. This is not unique to Australia. Although many countries are using 5G, coverage is still part of 4G.

If you’re unfamiliar, 5G is the next upgrade for cellular networks after 4G. It is several times faster than 4G and opens up many new possibilities, such as smart cities and farms, and untethered AR and VR experiences.

Whether you’re waiting for 5G in Australia or elsewhere, 5G updated daily: the latest news and updates to see how this new technology is advancing around the world.

There are three big names worth noting: Optus, Telstra and Vodafone. Available services depend on where you live, whether your carrier already has 5G-compatible phones, and whether you want cellular service at home or just 5G internet.

The 5G Challenge: Why It Isn’t Coming Sooner

work

One provider is Optus, the second largest telecommunications company in the United States. In November 2019, we started offering both mobile 5G solutions and fixed wireless access (FWA) 5G. Since launch, there have been more than 290 5G sites in Sydney, Canberra, Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth, NSW, Victoria and Queensland.

Optus will turn on its standalone 5G network for limited testing purposes at the end of 2021.

You can order 5G Home Broadband with a 50Mbps Satisfaction Guarantee. One of the plans says it’s up to 100Mbps, the other doesn’t, and the average download speed is said to be over 200Mbps.

Visit our 5G Phones page for an updated list of compatible phones. The coverage map shows you where you can get 5G (cellular and home services). Benchmarking reports show that average download speeds exceed 350Mbps.

Telstra

Prior to 2019, Telstra already had over 200 5G-capable cellular locations, including all major Australian cities as well as less popular locations. Thousands of sites in operation today include Queensland, Adelaide, Perth, Canberra, Melbourne, Tasmania, Sydney, Brisbane, Hobart, Launceston and Toowoomba in more than 3,000 suburbs and 200 cities and towns representing more than 75% of the population. covers The goal is to reach 95% of the population by mid-2025.

See all 5G smartphone options. You can choose from several plans that work with all these devices, from a 40GB plan to a plan that supports 180GB.

Telstra 5G’s first customer was FKG Group in Toowoomba with HTC 5G Hub deployment.

The company launched 5G home service at the end of 2020. In early 2021, we doubled the included monthly data limit from 500 GB to 1 TB. In November 2021, 5G Home & Business Internet was launched with download speeds of up to 600 Mbit/s.

Vodafone

In 2019, Vodafone partnered with Nokia to bring 5G to Vodafone Hutchison Australia customers. Service started in 2020. The first regions to roll out 5G are Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Canberra, Perth, Gold Coast, Newcastle, Central Coast and Geelong.

Australian MVNO Network

If you are receiving service from a Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO), you may have to wait longer for 5G as that carrier is purchasing access from another carrier. This process may not be consistent with the parent company’s 5G schedule.

For example, Woolworths Mobile, Boost Mobile, Belong and ALDImobile are on the Telstra network. Hello Mobile, KISA Phone and Kogan Mobile with Vodafone; amaysim, iPrimus and Exetel use the Optus mobile network.

Mobile and at-home 5G is available

Australian 5G networks are popping up, but not everyone has access just yet. This isn’t unique to Australia; several countries have 5G, but coverage is still a fraction of that provided by 4G.

If you’re not familiar, 5G is the next upgrade to mobile networks following 4G. It’s many times faster than 4G and opens up lots of new opportunities like smart cities and farms, and untethered AR and VR experiences.

5G Challenges: Why It Isn’t Rolling Out Faster
Optus

One provider is Optus, the country’s second-biggest telecom company. In November 2019, they began offering both a mobile 5G solution and fixed wireless access (FWA) 5G. From the launch date, there were over 290 5G sites in Sydney, Canberra, Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth, NSW, Victoria, and Queensland.

Optus turned on their Standalone 5G network for limited trial in late 2021.

You can order 5G Home Broadband with a 50 Mbps Satisfaction Guarantee. One of the plans maxes out at 100 Mbps, but the other one doesn’t, and is said to offer average download speeds of over 200 Mbps.

See their 5G phones page for an updated listing of their compatible smartphones. Their coverage map details where you can get 5G (mobile and home service). A benchmarking report shows average download speeds over 350 Mbps.

Telstra

Before 2019, Telstra already had over 200 5G-enabled mobile sites, including not only every single major city in Australia but also some less popular locations. Of the thousands of sites now in operation, over 3,000 suburbs and over 200 cities and towns have coverage, which amounts to over 75% of the population, including Queensland, Adelaide, Perth, Canberra, Melbourne, Tasmania, Sydney, Brisbane, Hobart, Launceston, and Toowoomba. The goal is to reach 95% of the population by mid-2025.

Australian MVNO Networks

If you get service from a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO), you might have to wait even longer for 5G because those operators buy their access from other telecom companies, a process which might not meet up with the parent company’s 5G timetable.

For example, Woolworths Mobile, Boost Mobile, Belong, and ALDImobile are on the Telstra network; Hello Mobile, KISA Phone, and Kogan Mobile with Vodafone; and amaysim, iPrimus, and Exetel use the Optus mobile network.
