2021 Report on 5G Capacity Potential - More Than 500 Gigabytes/Sub/Month - ResearchAndMarkets.com

·3-min read

The "5G Capacity Potential - More Than 500 Gigabytes/Sub/Month" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

A study of 169 European, American, Asian Pacific and African operators. Elisa Finland is the operator with the highest combined 4G & 5G capacity potential in the world. Jio India, Verizon US and MTS Russia were among the operators that had the highest 4G capacity utilization (most congested macro site mobile networks) in 2019.

  • Elisa Finland is the operator with the highest combined 4G & 5G capacity potential in the world.

  • Jio India, Verizon USandMTS Russia were among the operators that had the highest 4G capacity utilization (most congested macro site mobile networks)in 2019.

  • Play Poland was the Europeanoperator with the highest 4G capacity utilization of 75% in 2019, up from 63% in 2018.

  • JapaneseandChineseoperators, T-Mobile US and Elisa Finland are among the operators that hold the highest 5G TDD spectrum holdings.

  • Telenor Norway and Elisa Finland, have the densest mobile networks (highest amount of macro sites relative to country population). Nordic, Baltic and Korean operators have mobile networks with dense macro site grids.

  • Canadian, US and Indian operators were among the operators with the least dense macro site grids.
