Optus reveals first Ericsson 5G site locations Featured

By

Optus has revealed the list of the first 50 5G site locations to be built by Ericsson across Sydney and Melbourne as part of its multi-vendor 5G rollout.

The sites will form part of Optus’ plan to build and deliver 1200 5G sites across Australia by March 2020, including in the ACT, Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia.

Kent Wu, Optus’ head of Network Access Planning & Quality, said: “This is another significant milestone for Optus as we continue with our customer focused 5G roll-out plan. We are continuing to deliver a more dynamic and innovative 5G network for the benefit of our customers.”

In January, Optus revealed plans for Optus 5G Home Broadband and Wu said Optus was now working with Ericsson to deliver a device for customers in these areas.

“We are working closely with Ericsson to conduct critical inter-operability device testing so that we can deliver a compatible 5G home broadband product to customers and open these sites up as part of our expressions of interest campaign.

“We are further demonstrating that our multi-vendor approach to Optus 5G will help to deliver a more dynamic and innovative 5G network for the benefit of our customers.”

Wu said Optus had opened expressions of interest allowing customers to register their interest “to be amongst the first to experience 5G in selected suburbs in Australia”.
