5G has been in the works for over a decade now, and with OEMs releasing their 5G phones, cellular operators have started deploying their networks too. The USA, in particular, is one of the early adopters of 5G. The service is now offered by all major carriers in select cities and regions. When talking about the growth, we expect 5G to grow faster than 4G. This is something that we also discussed in our previous podcast.
In the latest episode of “The Counterpoint Podcast”, host Ritesh Bendre and Research Director Jeff Fieldhack discuss the current state of 5G in the USA. We have covered a wide range of topics from operators to average download speeds, and carrier dynamics. In addition, we also share our views on sales of current 5G phones, and our shipment expectations for 2020, especially in light of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
