Ericsson Mobility Report for June 2022 published:
In this edition of the Ericsson Mobility Report we continue to follow the evolution of the telecom industry, where 5G is scaling faster than any previous mobile generation. By the end of this year, we expect 5G subscriptions to reach 1 billion.
We see a strong growth when it comes to mobile data traffic. Globally mobile network data traffic has doubled in the last two years, driven by continuing growth in smartphone usage, mobile broadband and the digitalization of societies and industries. By the end of 2022, the average monthly usage per smartphone is expected to surpass 15GB, and then grow to 40GB by the end of 2027.
Fixed wireless access (FWA) is an area growing in importance, and more than 75 percent of service providers surveyed are now offering FWA services. During 2022 the number of FWA connections are expected to exceed 100 million, a number forecast to more than double by 2027.
