About the Report

The analyst looks at the key new trends in 5G services worldwide, focused on the last six-month period from November 2021 to April 2022. The key changes over the period include the deployment of 5G services in more countries in Africa, Eastern Europe and South America, and the deployment of more 5G nodes in established 5G markets.

The introduction of 5G SA (Stand Alone) services: 5G SA is being introduced by more MNOs worldwide to provide improved 5G coverage in urban areas.

The introduction of 5G FWA (Fixed Wireless Access): FWA is being introduced by a number of MNOs as a high-speed Home Broadband product as an alternative to fixed line broadband services. 

The introduction of domestic 5G services - e.g.  EE (Everything Everywhere) has introduced a domestic 5G service offering improved 5G coverage within a house or building.

The introduction of 5G+ services: 5G+ services provide a higher download speed than traditional 5G, with theoretical download speeds of up to 1.3 Gbps.
