5G is a technological revolution.
Unlike 3G to 4G, which was an evolutionary change – slightly bigger pipes, slightly faster data speeds - 4G to 5G is a whole new ballgame. And yet, despite the hype around 5G networks and the aggressive marketing of 5G handsets, it’s not clear what value Communications Service Providers (CSPs) and end-users get today.
To uncover the truth, we commissioned a worldwide survey of 100 Tier-1 and Tier-2 mobile network operators and asked them a series of probing questions:
Where are they in their 5G journey?
What is missing and when do they expect to reach true 5G?
What features are they anticipating and how do they expect to make money from them?
What are they worried about when they consider a future with 5G?
