One billion people will have access to 5G by the end of the year according to Ericsson



The 5G has made significant progress in 2020, with various operators deploying their networks already in Spain, such as Movistar. In addition, throughout the year many phones have been launched to the market that has support for this new generation. More and more people have access to these new networks.

According to a report published by Ericsson, by the end of this year, approximately one billion people will already have access to 5G worldwide. It, therefore, assumes that 15% of the world's population has access to these networks.

5G reaches 15% of the population

Ericsson says that 5G is no longer a novelty, to become the norm in many countries already. This allows a new phase to be entered, in which more and more devices are being released to the market, which has support for this new generation. This is something we have seen because mobiles with support are no longer something exclusive to the mid-range.

Also, as an interesting fact, 80% of contracts and 5G fees or subscriptions come from China. This is the country that has adopted this new standard the most, a fact that contrasts with North America for example, whereby the end of this year only 4% of mobile subscriptions are expected to be with the new standard.


You can see the difference in the pace of implementation of this new standard around the world. It seems that this is something that will be maintained for a while yet, although growth in the market will not stop, as by the end of 2026 there are expected to be more than 3.5 billion rates of the new standard worldwide.

It seems clear that 5G is advancing at a good pace around the world. In countries such as Spain, the main operators are responsible for their deployment. Movistar, for example, will give 75% of Spain's population access before the end of the year.
