By 2027, telcos’ 5G FWA earnings will total $24 billion

According to Juniper Research, earnings from 5G fixed wireless access (FWA) services for telecom carriers is expected to increase by 480% between 2022 and 2023, from $515 million to $2.5 billion.

According to the research firm, 5G FWA revenue for telecom operators will total $24 billion globally by 2027. This rise is attributed to 5G’s cutting-edge capabilities, including ultra-low latency and enhanced information processing, enabling it to offer connectivity providers that were previously impossible with 4G technology.

The company predicted that the consumer sector will produce the most significant revenue providers, which will account for 96% of all sales.

To enhance the user service and acquire a competitive edge over technologies like FTTP, Juniper Research advised telecoms to offer a convincing customer proposal for FWA solutions through the bundling of additional services like video streaming, gaming, and smart home security (fibre to the property).

“FWA advantages currently match those of services provided by fiber-based networks. By offering last-mile solutions supported by their current 5G infrastructure, operators have the ability to start generating income from internet subscriptions to end users immediately “Elisha Sudlow Poole, author of the study, noted

Private networks, which offer higher network capabilities to 4G, were also mentioned in the study as a significant prospect for monetization.
