Broadband Disruption: How 5G Will Reshape the Competitive Landscape - Second Edition (2018) - ResearchAndMarkets.com

November 12, 2018

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 12, 2018--The “Broadband Disruption: How 5G Will Reshape the Competitive Landscape - Second Edition” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

Fifth-generation (5G) wireless networks could leapfrog the capacity of cable operators’ hybrid fiber-coax (HFC) networks - for both Internet access and television viewing - by leveraging millimeter wave spectrum, small cells, and higher spectral efficiency.

This report is an essential business planning tool, quantifying broadband demand today and tomorrow, and calculating the throughput per square kilometer for competing networks. The price includes a one-hour phone briefing with the authors.

The second edition is fully updated (November 2018) and adds sections on mid-band spectrum capacity and deployment; the cost of 5G infrastructure; and 5G business models. The second edition features 38 tables and figures.

Estimates suggesting that 5G networks will be too expensive fail to consider that operators have a wide choice of deployment strategies, that recent regulatory changes ensure small cells can be built and operated economically, and that operators can make extensive use of existing infrastructure .

“Wireless operators have different 5G strategies, and our report shows how they can leverage factors such as spectrum and cell density to achieve specific coverage and performance goals. We also examine the cost of building 5G infrastructure, various financing options, and the viability of 5G fixed wireless broadband business models given different deployment scenarios.

Additional Conclusions

Many estimates for the cost of building 5G networks overlook selective deployment options, and fail to consider likely small cell price reductions and performance improvements over time. Competition to provide 5G infrastructure will be fierce, and operators are under intense pressure from investors to control spending and debt. There are viable business models for 5G-based fixed wireless broadband service. However, the viable models require close attention to variables detailed in the report. For instance, operators should concentrate initially on areas with sufficiently high home density. Mid-band spectrum doesn’t have the capacity to compete head-on with cable, but it could provide all-in-one service (phone, Internet, and TV) for busy, cost-conscious Millennial and Gen Z customers based on higher data allowance plans (60-100 GB/month).
