In 2023, the number of 5G subscriptions for enhanced mobile broadband is forecast to reach 1 billion. The evolution to 5G will also enable a range of new use cases transforming business processes and leisure time.
The November 2017 edition of the Ericsson Mobility Report continues to forecast the growth of mobile technology. The number of LTE subscriptions is growing rapidly, and we anticipate that LTE will become the dominant mobile access technology by the end of this year.

In this edition, four regional versions of the report are also published.
