Australia 5G uptake forecast revised down by 50% for 2020

Tuesday 7 April 2020 | 09:47 CET | News
The Australian market grew by 332,000 SIOs (Services in Operation) for the six months to the end of December 2019, reaching around 36.3 million connections. This is the lowest net increase since December 2013, according to a report from Telsyte. The report also shows that increasing competition and the lowest net increase for six years had already put pressure on Australia's mobile operators even before the covid-19 pandemic.
