Telstra is intending to run 5G trials during the upcoming Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast, with the intention of offering full 5G services in 2019. Rival telco Optus had announced on 2 February that it intends to start offering 5G services in 2019. Meanwhile, telecommunications Paul Budde says 5G represents a threat to the NBN when it comes to those internet users that purchase the more basic user packages, although NBN spokesperson Tony Brown does not believe this is the case.
