Analysts from Ericsson ConsumerLab have already identified the impact that 5G technology is having on the way smartphones are used thanks to its advanced mobile connectivity. Basing their research consumer sentiment and perception in 26 markets around the world, the report mentioned that there are at least 300 million smartphone users that will take up 5G in 2021 on their new devices.

A few ways that 5G is already triggering new use behaviors include a reduction of Wi-Fi use among owners, a 2-hour increase on cloud gaming and one hour more on augmented reality (AR) apps per week compared to 4G users. This is because when 4G technology was introduced, its peak network data rates ranged from 42 megabits per second to 1 gigabit per second. 5G builds upon that to offer a peak data rate of up to 20Gbps and an average user experience of 100Mbps, compared to the 10Mbps in 4G.

5G also enables the use of artificial intelligence (AI) apps and devices more efficiently thanks to its low-latency connectivity which is essential for tasks such as autonomous driving, industrial automation.

Also, 5G mobile networks are able to connect millions of devices per square mile, allowing for the development of more smart cities applications that will be essential in the future.
