    Spark has switched on 5G to a limited number of businesses and consumers in Alexandra


    Technology Director Mark Beder says it's the beginning of a regional roll out - with plans for it to be available to another five heartland towns before Christmas.

    Beder says initial testing shows speeds for 5G wireless broadband five to 10 times faster than 4G in the same location.
