Hey @tj_hudson - Thanks for sharing this with the interest of 5G. I've just removed your address as we're an open forum and this is accessible by anyone.
Our team are working to have the network rolled out as soon as possible right across Australia. We're yet to have an exact ETA of when 5G will be at your address however, we regularly update our 5G offering through this link and I'd recommend checking this out every so often for the latest news.
Did we answer your question? Please mark it as a Accepted Solution and if you see something that was helpful to you or the rest of the community, giving a Kudos is only a click away.
@tj_hudsonOn your mobile download an app called "AUS Phone Towers" and see where the towers are near you and if closest tower has 5G then you are IMHO out of luck. If the closest tower to you does not have 5G then you will have to wait for Optus to install 5G and then allow people to use it.
Where I am Optus installed 5G in July last year, but I still cannot get 5G.....
You can check the towers near you to see what they currently have installed from the following page:
Optus so far have not given any ETA to requests that I have seen. They also will not confirm 5G is on a tower if they have not enabled people to connect to it (in my case 99% of the response is "it's not available and have no ETA when it will be ..." and the other 1% I got a someone who told the trush and said that they do not have access to when 5G will be enabled until it is")
@tj_hudsonDepends on allot of things, but in your case the biggest one is that Optus's system says it's not available, so they will not sell it to you at that address.
When it is (probably never) then if there are any buildings, trees or other obstacles between you and the tower then you will have issues. I do not know what the line of site distance is.
