Australia’s best 5G network - the best and getting better

We’re on a mission to bring better connectivity to everyone, especially with our 5G. We’ve made a commitment to roll out our exciting new 5G capabilities to more areas across metro, regional and rural Australia, and that’s exactly what we’re doing.

 

More 5G coverage than any other network

Our 5G is now covering 75% of the Australian population.
