FAQ about 5G


We believe the first meaningful use case of 5G in New Zealand is for​ 5G wireless broadband. It will be faster than speeds previously available, improving the streaming and gaming experience for those using wireless broadband.

Once 5G becomes more widespread for mobile devices, it will offer massive data bandwidth and fibre-like speeds on mobile while you're out and about.

Mobile technology is continuously evolving over time, as we've seen with previous generations like 3G and 4G. The rollout of 5G around New Zealand will take time and will require the use of particular phones and modems, so the 4G and 3G networks will be with us for quite some years yet.
