The Australian Government is supporting accelerated adoption of applications of 5G, announcing nearly $20 million in funding for projects under the Australian 5G Innovation Initiative in August 2021. The grants will support trials of 5G applications that will drive productivity and growth across Australia in key industry sectors including agriculture, mining, construction and manufacturing. Jason will discuss the motivations for the grant program and provide an update on some of the funded projects.
