MONACO: Monaco on Tuesday (Jul 9) became the first country in Europe to inaugurate a next-generation 5G mobile phone network based on technology from Chinese firm Huawei, which is seen by the US as a major security risk.

As mobile operators shift away from slower 3G and 4G networks, Europe has been torn over its approach to the Chinese giant, which is a pioneer in 5G technology.

Vodafone Uk 5G: new 5G pricing model

With EE claiming the ‘first’ accolade many telcos seem to think is critically important, Vodafone needed to do something different to gain attention; this pricing move might well be an important one.

The idea is simple. Instead of tiering pricing plans on monthly data allocations, unlimited data packages can be purchased with tiered limits of speeds. Customers can select the package which is best suited to the way in which they use their devices.

Ericsson ups 5G subscriber forecast to 1.9 million in 2024

In its latest Mobility Report, Ericsson said 5G subscriptions were now expected to reach 1.9 billion in 2024, up from its previous forecast in November 2018 of 1.5 billion subscriptions, an increase of almost 27%.

Ericsson also upped its forecast for 5G coverage from 40% to 45% of the world’s population in five years’ time, a figure which could surge to 65% due to spectrum sharing, which enables deployments on LTE frequency bands.

The vendor said its increased confidence regarding uptake of the technology was in part due to the strong commitment of chipset and device vendors, key to the acceleration of 5G. In the short-term, it predicted more than 10 million 5G subscriptions by the end of 2019, as compatible smartphones across all the main spectrum bands become available and an increasing number of networks go live.

In other highlights from the report, Ericsson said total mobile data traffic continued to soar globally, up 82% year on year in Q1 2019. By end-2024, it expects 131 exabytes to be consumed each month, 35% of which will be over 5G networks.
