The 5G lab hosts technologies that showcase some of the possibilities and benefits of 5G such as robotics, virtual reality, facial recognition, Internet of Things (IoT), smart cities, emergency services drones and driverless cars.

In the lead-up to Spark's targeted launch date of July 1, 2020 for the live nationwide 5G network, the 5G lab allows companies to test and develop applications over a pre-commercial 5G network.
