A mobile connected world

Statista Report on the 3GPP - The mobile broadband technology standard

A mobile connected world Mobile data is a topic that is taken for granted by many of us these days, however, the significance of open, global mobile communication standards shouldn’t be underestimated. It is thanks to these standards and technologies that we can are able to enjoy ubiquitous high-quality access to mobile internet within our mobile societies.

5G - the new generation in mobile communications, was released in 2019, and as of May 2020, 125 countries around the globe have begun to invest in the technology. 5G networks are the latest 3GPP standard– boasting speeds between 10 and 100 times faster than 4G. Largely thanks to this massive increase in speed, 5G is expected to revolutionize mobile communications and enable the digitalization many new aspects of everyday life. Perhaps most important for future innovation is the ability of 5G technology to transfer massive amounts of data in real-time. 5G could serve as the basis for a "Fourth Industrial Revolution" and provide the connectivity required for smart cities of the future. In addition to these macro-level benefits, this technology will also bring ease and efficiency to the lives of countless individuals around the world.

This Statista report takes a closer look at the evolution of the 3G, 4G & 5G technological mobile standards across their entire lifespans, covering everything from the introduction of each standard to forecasts of their growth in the future. This analysis covers several dimensions: Technological progress – link between new technologies, such as smart phones and IOT, and the underlying mobile communication standards (3GPP), as well as the
