39pc Of Aussies To Go Mobile-Only

Vodafone Australia has released a report commissioned from the Centre for International Economics (CIE), which predicts that 39 percent of Australian households could use mobile networks as their only means of accessing the Internet at home.

The findings are based on a survey of Australian households about Internet use at home. CIE estimates that 17 percent of households are already using only mobile services for their Internet access. It says 5G is showing early signs of being able to compete with the current packages offered on the NBN, both in terms of speed and latency.

“Early deployments of 5G technology are expected to be highly effective in fixed-wireless applications … It is expected that 5G fixed-wireless will offer such a large increase in capacity that it will be viable to rollout in urban areas and compete in the fixed-line market,” the report says.

Details of the report were presented by Vodafone’s chief strategy officer, Dan Lloyd at a CommsDay summit in Sydney yesterday. Vodafone Australia has released a report commissioned from the Centre for International Economics (CIE), which predicts that 39 percent of Australian households could use mobile networks as their only means of accessing the Internet at home.
