According to Ericsson, 5G Will Reach 1 Billion People by the End of 2022.

5G is on the verge of accomplishing an important milestone. The manufacturer of telecom equipment Ericsson predicts that by the end of the year, there will be 1 billion 5G subscribers worldwide. This is still a long way off from 4G, which will have 5 billion customers by 2022.

According to Ericsson, 4G will peak in the upcoming year and 5G will compete to take its place. Many people can get faster speeds, but they will probably cost more.

American carriers have bragged about their superior 5G capabilities for the past three years. About 35% of all mobile users will utilize 5G by the end of 2022. The good news for US citizens is that mid-band 5G, also known as the good stuff, now has 80% coverage.

In other words, get ready for increased 5G coverage globally in 2023, but be prepared to pay more for it as well.

According to Syed Amin ul Haq, the minister of information technology and telecommunications, 5G should be available in Pakistan by July 2023. If the launch isn’t postponed for the nth time, that is.
