Mobile coverage at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) is getting another round of upgrades. Telstra has announced, in partnership with Ericsson, that it will be installing 5G at the stadium ahead of this weekend’s Australian Football League (AFL) grand final.

“On match day last year, we saw a massive 3.8 terabytes of data sent over Telstra’s mobile network at the MCG, which is equivalent to 1,200 hours of HD video content.
