5G is the next step for mobile in Australia. Telstra, Optus and Vodafone have all conducted technology trials and it is expected that 5G will be commercially deployed from 2020. 5G will be more than just the next mobile upgrade – it will complement the broader network ecosystem, including fixed line networks and working with the latest 4G networks – 4.9G or LTE Advanced Pro. 5G will be both an evolution and revolution – it will work with and build on existing networks as well as enable a fully mobile and seamlessly connected society, delivering the necessary environment to support business models and use cases that haven’t even been conceived yet.
