Optus has been rolling out its 5G network across Australia since 2019 and is currently the only major network that offers 5G home Internet solutions.

Its 5G home Internet plans come with Optus' 50Mbps Satisfaction Guarantee, which promises a minimum speed of 50Mbps at all times on its plans (which is equal to the third NBN speed category, NBN 50).

If you're not interested in a 5G home Internet plan, Optus also offers 5G on all of its postpaid SIM-only mobile plans for no additional cost.

You'll just need to make sure you're within Optus' 5G coverage area if you want access to these speeds.

Until recently, Optus' 5G network was on par with Telstra, but as of January 2021, it has fallen a little behind. Optus still has the second largest 5G network in the country.

Currently, 5G access is unavailable on Optus' prepaid plans.

Optus 5G home wireless

Optus 5G Home Internet is an NBN-alternative if you're looking for fast speeds at home. Average download speeds are advertised at 225Mbps, which is much faster than any fixed-line Internet speed that you'll get at Optus' price point.

Additionally, there's a 50Mbps Satisfaction Guarantee, which essentially means that if you can't get at least 50Mbps, then you're free to cancel with no charge. Still, it's only available in select areas and can be affected significantly by environmental factors like walls, trees, weather and line-of-sight.
