The Defence Forces are not currently using 5G communication technology in Ireland or abroad. Likewise, the Department of Defence is not using 5G in Ireland. I have not received advice or consultancy on the use of 5G by the Defence Forces. As with all new communication technology, the Department and Defence Forces will continue to monitor its development and applications into the future.
