5G broadband speeds have been announced in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria.
The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) has confirmed it will release the latest figures from the state’s network.
This will include the state-wide rollout of 5G in Queensland and New South South Wales.
A spokesperson for the AICMA told Radio National that the state had already released the first state-level rollout of the 5G network.
The new rollout includes a new copper network and will be rolled out in four phases.
The first phase will begin in 2019 and is expected to be completed by 2021.
This is the same rollout as the rollout of 4G.
It will cover the most populated areas of Queensland and includes the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Southern Highlands and Penrith.
The second phase will see the rollout expanded to include the Goldfields, Southport, Sunshine and the Sunshine Coast.
It is anticipated that the Gold coast will receive the most investment of all.
The network will be upgraded to 5G by 2023.
This phase will cover all parts of Queensland, including the Gold and Goldfields areas, the Southern Highlands, Souths Sunshine Coast and the Eastern Cape.
The third phase will involve a major expansion to cover all of the state.
The next phase will be the fourth phase which will include a massive upgrade to the network to 5 G speeds.
This rollout will commence in 2027.
