5G could double the revenue per user for mobile networks

Research and consultancy business GlobalData expects 5G data usage to generate monthly average revenue per user (ARPU) of $14.15 (£10.20) in 2026, which is more than double 4G’s monthly ARPU of $5.48.

Overall, the company expects a total of 3.9 billion 5G mobile subscriptions globally by the end of 2026 – that’s 35.1% of all mobile subscriptions – with 5G delivering service revenues of $609 billion (£439 bn).

Lynnette Luna, Principal Analyst with GlobalData, said “Although we have not yet seen all that 5G is capable of in early deployments, the technology has a multitude of future opportunities for telecom operators. Not only will capacity bring down the per-bit cost for carriers, the basic cost efficiencies that 5G brings will enable operators and developers alike to create new applications for the technology as it becomes to mature and develop. This growing innovation will contribute to an expected rise in 5G mobile subscriptions worldwide”

GlobalData notes that operators in some markets are offering advanced technology and services as part of a 5G bundle. Vodafone is promoting Nreal Light smart glasses with an interest-free purchase price in some 5G European markets, while other 5G operators – including Telia in Sweden and EE in the UK – are selling cloud gaming services.

The new iPhone no-one was expecting

Mark Bridge writes:

New Apple products! New Android smart watches!

You’d be forgiven for not having noticed either of those news stories last week. Apple did indeed announce a new iPhone – but it was simply a new iPhone 5c with just 8MB of memory.

Bye-bye Barcelona, hello Hanover

Mark Bridge writes:

As one show closes, so another show opens.

It’s now more than a week since we bid a sad farewell to Mobile World Congress 2014 – I imagine hotel rooms for 2nd to 5th March 2015 are already being booked – but there’s now CeBIT in Germany to look forward to. Prime Minister David Cameron kicked things off last night with a speech that talked about UK-German partnerships, more funding for research around the ‘Internet of Things’ and the development of 5G technology.
