Working to bring 5G to a city centre near you


We’ve started rolling out 5G across CBDs in major cities, Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Perth, Melbourne and Sydney, with plans to extend coverage within a 2km radius of these city centres.

Rollouts in Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra and Perth CBDs are already well underway, with Sydney (including Parramatta) and Melbourne CBDs not too far behind. We’ve also already launched 5G in most of the Gold Coast metro area, as well as having much of Hobart, Launceston and Toowoomba covered.
