5G inquiry talks to the experts

An inquiry into 5G mobile technology in Australia will continue this week, with a hearing in Canberra.

House of Representatives Communications and the Arts Committee Chair Dr David Gillespie says the hearing will feature regulators, researchers and industry leaders from a range of fields.

‘During this inquiry, we’ve heard a range of views on the deployment of 5G and we’re keen to discuss some of the expressed concerns with experts,’ Dr Gillespie said.

‘We’re also interested to learn more about the future of Australia’s 5G rollout. Australians are beginning to access some 5G services, and we want to hear from those responsible for its deployment.’

‘We want to hear about any potential risks and challenges and how these can be addressed.’
