5G

I tried to register for interest in 5G broadband. But my Suburb is Lisarow, however it borders on Niagara Park. How do I find out if I will get 5G coverage? There is a base station less than 500metres from my house

Re: 5G

They are only working off suburbs listed, while you may be close - the 5g sector for your direction may not be active.

 

Suburbs are chosen for different reasons such as nbn delivery method, geographical features, average income etc. 

 

5g just starting out will be a gradual process (telcos are still upgrading 3g towers to 4g)

Re: 5G

NBN rollout my street was half completed 2years ago, but Im still waiting. But I can see a base station. If its that one them signal would not be an issue

Re: 5G

Normally antennas are arranged at 90, 180 and 270 offsets. 

Optus is only targeting specific suburbs, so most likely only using the segment for that direction. 

 

If they wanted your suburb then they would add it to the list - at the moment its very much a trial of the technology.
