Widespread 5G uptake ten years away

A bullish outlook for 5G comes from Juniper Research, which predicts that service revenues will exceed $65 billion by 2025, compared to just $100 million during its first year of commercial services in 2020. This figure would represent about 7% of all operator-billed service revenues. Juniper notes that while the first commercial rollouts are expected in 2020, widespread adoption will only occur from 2025, with national spectrum licensing occurring over a period of years as per 4G. In its report, “5G market strategies: 4G LTE evolution, spectrum analysis and opportunities 2015-2025”, Juniper observes that there is a growing consensus around the development of 5G standards in terms of both technology and performance aspects. “The ‘5G Vision’ includes key requisites such as network speeds of at least 10 Gbps, 1 ms latency or less, improved spectral efficiency, low energy consumption, better battery life, higher device density - along with improved reliability and flexibility.”
