Telstra has launched public trials of its 5G evolutionary technology called mmWave or 'millimetre wave', which offers never before seen download speeds in Australia.
The 'supercharged' 5G network will reportedly offer download speeds which are three times faster than the best NBN connection.
Telstra users on the Gold Coast and Parramatta will be the first in Australia to test the new technology from Tuesday.
