Roy Morgan, Australia’s largest independent research company, interviewed a cross-section of 626 Australians aged 18+ in late June 2019. Respondents were asked “Have you heard of 5G technology for mobile phone and internet services?” and those that were aware were then told “4G is the current technology used for mobile phone and mobile internet services. 5G technology is the next upgrade” and asked whether they agreed or disagreed with a series of attitude statements.
Michele Levine, CEO of Roy Morgan, says the survey shows that “while over 9-in-10 Australians are aware of 5G technology only around a quarter of Australians aware of 5G (28.7%) are ready to switch mobile phone or internet providers to get 5G today”.
She also pointed out that issues raised by Australians include potential health concerns, with 26.1% agreeing with the statement that “I’m concerned about the health risks of 5G technology”. Another 20.6% of respondents are concerned about data security and agreed with the statement that “I worry that changing to 5G will increase the risk to my data security”.
