A new report (here) from GSA predicts "over 270 5G networks will be deployed by 2025 and points to two significant trends that are driving the wireless industry to develop 5G network technology. These are:
- the explosive growth in demand for wireless broadband services, which require faster and higher capacity networks to deliver video
- other content-rich services and the predicted massive growth of Internet of Things (IoT) applications – some of which will require ultralow latency and need highly reliable IP connectivity".
