From the Report:
With this edition of the Ericsson Mobility Report, we take a look back at some of the key trends and events that have shaped the last decade as we celebrate the 10-year anniversary of this report.
Rather than only looking back, it is more interesting to reflect on the learnings of the past 10 years and apply them to the future. If the last decade saw a lot of change, it’s probably nothing compared to what we expect to happen in the next. When we lift our gaze to 2027 and consider the 5G subscription forecast, which estimates that around half of all mobile subscriptions will be for 5G at that time, it is clear that underneath the numbers lies a continuous change in how we act, live and work.
The pandemic has shown us how fast things can change, and how critical a digital infrastructure is to society. 5G is entering a new phase, where not only will consumers benefit from new applications, but also businesses and industries will take advantage of new capabilities. No doubt, the pace of change will continue to be high, and 5G will play a key role in our lives.
The Ericsson Mobility Report aims to continue its mission to be a beacon for the mobile industry, shining at least some light onto what that future might look like.
