How operators view future 5G services

Every new generation of wireless technology presents an opportunity for network transformation as well as service innovation. 5G will be no different. The way that opportunity will be realised, however, is still unclear. On the cusp of 5G commercialisation, there is no shortage of questions around the types of 5G services operators will launch, how they will measure success, and their expectations for engagement with the broader mobile industry.

Synthesising a combination of input from telecoms operator decision-makers, public statements, public presentations, and stakeholder conversations, we shine a light on current views and expectations for 5G.
