    I bought 3 X 5g Optus modems.
    $75 for unlimited data
    Have them at 3 at my locations.
    2 of them only 4g coverage
    All over 100mbs

    Happy to get rid of Aussie BB NBN

      That sounds great!
      Can you elaborate a bit. I’m looking at switching to 4G/5G from NBN, for 2 locations.
      Thanks in advance.

      We’re on Aussie NBN, they’ve been great but agree, 5G is a bit of a NBN killer (what the coalition made our NBN into anyway).

      •  

        So 5g speeds are faster than the average nbn?

        •  

          Yes, depending on reception. 4G with good reception (urban areas) are faster than NBN. I did a speed test on my iphone (metro Melb) and it went at about 270Mbps. That's on 4G. My NBN is only 50Mbps.

      Back story

      I got 2 x Cafe and getting NBN connection was a headache.
      So I got 2 Promo sims and bought 2 x TP link Wireless N LTE Router and sims didnt work
      then got amaysim and they did but not enough data avail

      Optus launched their 5G, so I tried to order 2 and they refused as 1 per address, so I got 1. Then I ordered another for same address the next day, Then I ordered another 3rd day for same address.
      and moved them to the out of 5g network area. I havent missed a beat other than the bad storm last week that took them out for a few hrs…

          2 hrs downtime over 3 months (2160 hrs)
          That's 99.90740741% uptime
          For a non wired and 100% portable service.

          And you are right. I haven't seen a bear since I installed it.

    Does anyone know if these Data SIMs include 5G network access?

    The CIS here doesn't state wehther it does or not, although there's a comment which does talk about 5G… but doesn't say the SIM gets 5G access:

    "Our Best Network Ever
    Our combined 4G & 3G network covers 98.5% of the Australian population and our 5G is rolling out across selected areas."
