The Consumer 5G Impact on Mobile Carriers

5G will allow higher digital consumption

With 5G offering higher speed and bandwidth and low latency, and new mobile devices coming into play, telcos face new opportunities to monetize and add value to connectivity services. But to take advantage of it, they need to innovate and expand their product portfolio.

In the US, 5G service subscriptions witnessed an impressive growth of 1,080.9% in 2020, growing from 1.3 million subscribers in 2019 to 15.8 million subscribers in 2020. By 2024, that number is yet predicted to grow to a whopping 167.9 million in the US alone.

This means ample opportunity for revenue growth for telcos resulting from high-speed data consumption needed for services like live event streaming, gaming, digital advertising, and more. In fact, Ericsson predicts that growth to reach as much as 30% by 2030.
