Smart cities will rely on connectivity provided by 5G to improve daily life.
Just like previous generations of mobile technology, 5G will have a significant impact on Australia’s economy. Australia has one of the highest adoption rates in the world when it comes to mobile technology. 5G will fuel economic growth by boosting productivity and workforce participation. In addition to economic benefits, 5G has the potential to improve accessibility to healthcare with telemedicine applications and even improve public safety with smart city applications such as smart lighting in public places. For more information about 5G read our latest report from Deloitte Access Economics. Download the complete report.
While the technical standards for 5G are still being developed, experts agree that 5G will offer: Latency of less than 1ms; Ability to deliver speeds of up to 10 Gbps and beyond; Energy efficiency in running 1000s of devices; and Improved network capacity by enabling millions of low bandwidth devices to connect simultaneously. Where 4G focussed on providing improved speed and capacity for individual mobile phone users, 5G will enable more industrial applications, and could be a major technological driver in industrial digitalisation.

ARPANSA's latest literature review reports on new Australian study which finds no increase in brain cancer with mobile phone use
In The Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA's) regular EMR literature survey for May 2016, ARPANSA report on the recent Australian study by Professor Simon Chapman which asks the question "Has the incidence of brain cancer risen in Australia since the introduction of mobile phones 29 years ago?". The paper pubslished in cancer epidermology compared mobile phone ownership with the incidence of brain cancer in Australia. In the study, brain cancer incidence rates from 1982 to 2012 are compared with the number of mobile phone accounts in the Australian population from 1987 to 2012. The study found that although mobile phone use increased from 0% to 94% during the 30 year period brain cancer incidence rates were stable. This finding is consitent with previous studies in the US, UK. New Zealand and Nordic countries. See ARPANSA's commentary here: Full paper may be found here:
