FWA Market November 2023
GSA has been tracking the market for fixed wireless access (FWA) to determine the evolving extent and nature of availability of FWA broadband services based on LTE or 5G technologies worldwide. Our latest report, based on research conducted in November 2023, provides high-level findings in various areas.
In FWA broadband services, GSA has identified announced service offers using LTE or 5G from 554 operators in 187 countries and territories and launched services from 477 operators in 175 countries and territories worldwide. The number of operators delivering FWA services using LTE or 5G varies widely by region, with Europe the dominant region.
When it comes to tariff structures, more than 52% of LTE FWA services are volume-based tariffs, in comparison with just over 19% of LTE service providers offering speed-based tariff structures and just 13.5% offering both. The difference is less marked with 5G tariff structures.
Operators are often vague when they talk about the FWA speeds their customers should expect, sometimes providing theoretical maximum speeds. Nonetheless, GSA collected information about the fastest download speeds quoted by operators for their FWA services where data was available. The maximum speeds promoted for LTE FWA services range from 1 Mbps to 2.5 Gbps. For 5G FWA, speed data has become more readily available; quoted peak download speeds ranged from 10 Mbps to 5,400 Mbps, with more than half of them sitting in the 250 Mbps to 2,700 Mbps range.
The report also covers research these and other areas including service portability and types of FWA device.
The full data set from the global service provider research is available to Associates and Members in Excel format. Please contact us for more information.
