Ericsson South East Asia expects 5G subscriptions to reach 190 million by the end of 2020

Telecommunication market has seen strong growth during the pandemic as people wish to remain connected together and cope with lock down measures. Ericsson expects that this trend will continue on in their June 2020 edition of Ericsson Mobility report, released on 23 June 2020.

Nunzio Mirtillo, Head of Ericsson South East Asia, Oceania and India, says: “The current Covid-19 pandemic has challenged us to do many things differently and to move activities online to different digital platforms. This has led to data proliferation as well as a geographical shift of data traffic from downtown business and public areas to residential areas on both fixed and mobile networks. The crisis has also demonstrated the critical importance of connectivity”

“5G is a platform for innovation. Unlike previous generations centred around consumer and personal communications, 5G will serve both consumers and enterprises, 5G will take IoT to the next level where superior connectivity is a prerequisite.”
