Optus 5G FWA product?

I've seen Optus have released there 5G FWA product to certain areas, checking to see if this will get better speeds and coverage than the Telstra HTC offering? Not sure about speeds and coverage for both yet? Cheers,

Re: Optus 5G FWA product?

At the moment, 5G coverage is limited to very small areas around major population centres.


As far as the devices go, they should get similar speeds to each other depending on coverage.


Can't tell you much more as Optus hasn't published any sort of 5G coverage map.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.
