Australia’s three biggest telcos, which are also the providers of Australia’s three mobile networks, are taking each other on in a 5G mobile network showdown. Telstra has the biggest 5G network.
Optus has unlimited-data plans for 5G home broadband . And Vodafone offers 5G across all its mobile plans.

That’s great news if you’re in an area with Vodafone 5G signal, but the current plan is for the Vodafone 5G network to be the smallest of the three in Australia. Similarly, while Telstra and Optus both offer 5G home broadband and Telstra offers 5G mobile internet, Vodafone’s 5G efforts are focused exclusively on 5G mobile plans.

What you need to access Vodafone 5G

  • A 5G-ready handset for Vodafone 5G mobile internet
  • A 5G-compatible Vodafone plan
  • 5G coverage in the areas you live, work and travel

Vodafone 5G coverage map

Activate the map below to check Vodafone 5G availability by location (use the drop-down menu to switch to Optus or Telstra 5G). It’s worth reiterating that Vodafone’s plans are for the smallest 5G network compared to Optus and Telstra, with the Vodafone 5G network focused predominantly on these areas:

  1. Sydney
  2. Melbourne
  3. Brisbane
  4. Adelaide
  5. Canberra
  6. Perth
  7. Gold Coast
  8. Newcastle
  9. Central Coast
  10. Geelong

Vodafone’s 5G plan is to roll out to 1,200+ sites that will eventually cover 85% of the Australian population in our six biggest cities (the top six in the list above) by the end of 2021. You can track the progress of the rollout on this Vodafone 5G support page.

Vodafone 5G modems

Because Vodafone doesn’t currently offer 5G mobile broadband or 5G home broadband, the telco doesn’t offer any 5G modems.

Vodafone 5G phones

Like any 5G network, you need a 5G phone to use on the Vodafone 5G network. The good news is Vodafone offers a range of Android and a handful of iPhone handsets that let you tap into the Vodafone 5G network.

Vodafone MVNOs and 5G

At the time of writing, no Vodafone MVNOs offered plans on the Vodafone 5G mobile network. That said, you can see the most popular plans on the Vodafone network below (across SIM Only and Prepaid plans).
