Over one billion people will have access to 5G coverage by the end of 2020, according to a new report from Ericsson.

The November 2020 Ericsson Mobility Report estimates that by the end of this year, more than 1 billion people – 15 percent of the world’s population – will live in an area that has 5G coverage rolled out. In 2026, 60 percent of the world’s population will have access to 5G coverage, with 5G subscriptions forecast to reach 3.5 billion.

Ericsson has raised its estimate for global 5G subscriptions to 220 million by the end of the year. This increase is due to rapid uptake in China with 5G reaching 11% of its mobile subscriber base. North America is expected to end the year with 4% of its mobile subscriptions being 5G and Europe will reach about 1%.

It's forecasted that by the end of 2026, 80% of North American subscriptions will be 5G, the highest of any region in the world.

Fredrik Jejdling, Executive Vice President and Head of Networks, Ericsson, says: “This year has seen society take a big leap towards digitalization. The pandemic has highlighted the impact connectivity has on our lives and has acted as a catalyst for rapid change, which is also clearly visible in this latest edition of the Ericsson Mobility Report. 5G is entering the next phase, when new devices and applications make the most out of the benefits it provides, while service providers continue to build out 5G. Mobile networks are a critical infrastructure for many aspects of everyday life and 5G will be key to future economic prosperity.”
