5G to be offered by Telstra in 2019
The Australian Financial Review reported that Telstra will start offering 5G network in 2019. We argued over the years that the NBN was fundamentally an insane proposition, as it aimed to deploy technology of the day, to be used in a distant future. One of the reasons behind our criticism was the imminent arrival of 5G networks. Once they arrive, the NBN will become obsolete. The consecutive Federal governments need to be congratulated on wasting $50 billion of taxpayers funds - just a mere $2,000 per capita.
