U.S. 5G Connections Forecast, 2022–2026
This IDC study provides the U.S. 5G connections forecast for 2022–2026.
"While 5G's impact on the mobile subscriber's user experience remains almost imperceptible, with limited 5G-specific apps and minimal presence outside the smartphone, 5G is poised to quickly become the de facto mode of cellular connectivity in the U.S.," says Jason Leigh, research manager, 5G and Mobile Services at IDC. "As coverage and connections continue to expand, it is incumbent on mobile operators, together with the broader 5G ecosystem, to develop and monetize new uses and experiences that are appreciably different and help to fulfill the revenue promises of 5G."
