5G revenue is anticipated to represent 44% of global operator billed revenue
According to Juniper Research, operator billed revenue from 5G connections will reach $357 billion by 2025. Rising from $5 billion in 2020, its first full year of commercial service.
By 2025, 5G revenue is expected to represent 44% of global operator billed revenue owing to the rapid migration of 4G mobile subscribers to 5G networks.
However, the study identified 5G networks roll-outs as highly resilient to the COVID-19 pandemic. It found that supply chain disruptions caused by the initial periods of the pandemic have been mitigated through modified physical roll-out procedures.
The study found that 5G uptake had surpassed initial expectations; predicting that a total of 5G connections will surpass 1.5 billion by 2025.
It also forecast that the average 5G connection will generate 250% more revenue than an average cellular connection by 2025.
