5G is naturally the hottest topic right now in telecoms. Various milestones have been hit in the UK, US and more, while Samsung is even beginning research into 6G. This has been noted by Ericsson, who argues that 5G subscriptions are now expected to hit 1.9 billion by 2024 as operators ramp up their deployments.
The findings appear in the company’s latest Mobility Report, which argues rapid early momentum and enthusiasm for 5G has bumped up the forecasts. “As market after market switches on 5G, we are at a truly momentous point in time,” the report opened. “No previous generation of mobile technology has had the potential to drive economic growth to the extent that 5G promises.”
