MacGregor in First Wave of 5G Broadband Service Rollout in Queensland

Optus is targeting to launch 1,200 sites in Australia by March 2020. For the first wave of the 5G Home Broadband service, 60 suburbs were selected to experience a 50Mbps Internet speed and 13 will be from Queensland. MacGregor will be one of the Queensland suburbs where Optus is planning to rollout their 5G service.

The other 12 are Clayfield, Newmarket, Gailes, Camira, Kallangur, Auchenflower, Goodna, Burpengary, Kenmore, Brookwater, Kenmore Hills, and Bellbird Park.

If successful, Optus will outrank Telstra as the fastest Internet provider in Australia with a 45.28Mbps Speed Score on mobile devices. The 5G services are expected to be delivered in the second quarter of 2019.

In the present, Optus already has five live-in network 5G cells. There are two in Canberra, two in Sydney, and the last one, which is going through an interoperability testing is in Kellyville.

Optus 5G Home Broadband Features

Optus offers the 5G Broadband at $70/month. It comes with a 5G modem by Nokia, unlimited data, and a superior speed of 50mbps. Optus has a 50mps Satisfaction Guarantee, wherein they will cancel the contract without cancellation fees if subscribers are not satisfied with their download speeds.

For Optus, being the first carrier to commercialize a 5G Home Broadband Service is not just an exciting journey. As the company’s Chief Executive Allen Lew described it, this will be an historic day for Optus.
