Besides, the Australian government’s plans to auction high band 5G spectrum in H1 2021 for faster, high-capacity 5G services will pave way for the further evolution of the mobile services market in the country. Along with that, the government aims to allocate a low-band 5G spectrum in H2 2021 for broader geographic coverage of 5G services.

We’ve reported that mobile video calls users reached nearly 2 billion in 2020.
