The world is embracing the arrival of 5G at a dizzying rate; in just two years of commercial development it has equaled the reach of 4G phone directory india.
The 5G network of connections is spreading around the world at breakneck speed. Despite all the controversies arising from the development of this new technology and questioning the benefits of its implementation, it seems that the large global telecommunications hubs have continued with it. According to the 5G Americas association, which collects data from Omdia, between the last quarter of 2019 and the fourth quarter of 2020, 385.5 million subscribers were added to reach 401 million connections.
The data also estimate that this year it will close with about 619 million connections; and that by the end of 2025 they could have reached 3.4 billion. This represents an unprecedented growth rate; much higher than 4G LTE had in its day. In fact, the fourth generation of mobile technology took five years to reach such a level of acceptance.
“In the second full year of commercial 5G availability, the industry went from 15.4 million subscribers to 401 million,” said Chris Pearson, president of 5G Americas. “The adoption of 5G connections will accelerate significantly in the coming years,” he says.
On the other hand, the company points out that 105 5G networks were activated in 2020, for a total of 163. This figure could increase by more than 30% this 2021. In addition, the World Association of Mobile Providers (GSA) points out that 628 new 5G devices have already been announced, which added to the 404 that were already available in February 2020 would add up to more than 1000. socialposts
