The House of Representatives Standing Committee on Communications and the Arts has commenced a Parliament-first inquiry into fifth-generation (5G) mobile network technology.

The Chair, Dr David Gillespie MP, said that the Committee will examine the deployment, adoption and application of 5G in Australia.

‘5G will transform the way we live and work, and provide opportunities for family life, industry and commerce. It will power smart homes and cities and provide new ways to experience entertainment, and at the same time transform transport, logistics and industry’, Dr Gillespie said.

Dr Gillespie added, ‘5G is expected to be significantly faster than current mobile network technology, delivering more capacity and faster mobile data speeds for consumers. We want to hear about the opportunities and challenges of 5G’.
