Infographic shows just how fast Australian 5G internet speeds will really be

Switching from a 4G network to 5G is like taking a 17hr 20min long-haul flight in just 3hr 50mins. That’s 4.5x as fast! You can see the full breakdown here: https://www.reviews.org/au/internet/5g-speeds-heres-how-much-faster-new-internet-speeds-will-be/

Methodology: To compare flight durations to mobile network speeds, we sourced average download speeds from 4G and 5G networks from Opensignal. We then converted the difference in speeds between networks to a non-stop flight from Perth to London (17:20 duration).
