Customers of Australian communications service provider Telstra will benefit from Ericsson-enabled 5G millimeter wave on the 26GHz spectrum band from mid-2020 in selected areas. The partners also continue to push the boundaries in 4G LTE connectivity, with successful testing that could result in cell range capability doubling from 100km to 200km - opening up new possibilities in rural mobile broadband coverage. Commercial mmWave 5G is expected to launch in Australia in 2021 following the auction of related spectrum. Ericsson and Telstra have been working in close partnership to test the technology and prepare the network.

Ericsson is already partnering with Telstra in its existing commercial 5G network, operating on 3.5GHz mid-band spectrum. Roll out is underway in 32 cities with Telstra targeting 35 cities by mid-2020.

The landmark achievement is part of Telstra’s ambition to provide 5G mmWave connectivity on 26GHz to selected customers by mid-2020 on a trial basis under special licenses which allow pre-auction commercial traffic. The trials will be supported by the launch of a Telstra-branded mmWave enabled device. Telstra will announce the first mmWave locations in the coming months.
