With Apple about to announce new 5G iPhones — or see its stock price plummet if it doesn’t — we look into the state of 5G networks in Australia, as well as the current crop of 5G iPhone rumours, cheaper 5G phone alternatives and why your Aunt Lucy who insists that 5G is the work of the devil is just plain wrong.

We’re joined this week by the one and only Jennifer Dudley Nicholson from News to talk through the state of play for 5G in Australia – and why it could become a lot more confusing picking a really ‘fast’ 5G phone.
