2021/01 5G Audit Report

For the inhabitants of the densely populated urban areas in Australia, it is particularly interesting to see how the operators perform in their home cities. Therefore, we have performed individual analyses for the largest Australian metropolitan areas.
More than 14 million (or 60 per cent of all) Australians live in one of the six largest urban areas of the country–plus another 368,000 in its capital Canberra. Therefore we have taken a closer look at the individual results of Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Gold Coast, Hobart, Melbourne, Perth, Sydney and Toowoomba.

Key Findings:

  • Telstra shows the widest 5G availability in each of the tested cities.

  • Telstra shows the highest download throughputs nationally for 5G.

  • Telstra shows the highest 5G peak throughput in all tested cities. In average 5G throughput, Telstra leads in eight of nine cities.

  • In the crowdsourcing analysis Telstra is ahead of the competition for the 5G connection share and download rates in all service classes.
