Vodafone was the last Australian mobile network to roll out 5G, but it's now available in over 350 suburbs across six states. It plans to roll out 1000 sites by the end of 2021.
Vodafone doesn't charge you extra for 5G access, and it's available across all of its mobile plans.
What do you want to do?
Importantly, 5G access for the moment is outdoor only. If you're inside a building within the coverage area, chances are you'll be switched back onto 4G. To see if 5G is available in your area, click on the state you're living in and we've got a list of the current suburbs where Vodafone's 5G network is up and running.

Check out the screenshots below of Vodafone's coverage areas. This includes its current live sites as well as its future 5G sites.
Vodafone plan pricing
On its current phone plans, Vodafone states that it won't charge customers any extra for access to its 5G network (provided you've got a compatible device). That's not to say that Vodafone won't shake up its plans in the future. For example, Telstra charges users on its cheaper plans extra for 5G access.
As an international brand, Vodafone will also provide its customers access to 5G in places "such as the UK, Germany, Spain, Italy and Ireland". You'll have to be on its $5 Roaming package (with a 5G capable device) to take advantage when this is rolled out in Europe or other destinations.
We update our data regularly, but information can change between updates. Confirm details with the provider you're interested in before making a decision.
Vodafone 5G phone plans
If you want 5G access, you'll also need a 5G phone. Vodafone sells a couple of 5G phones with its SIM-only plans. We've shown Vodafone's plans for the iPhone 12 and Samsung S20, but you can click 'filter results' to search for more phone models.
