Rural and enterprise broadband is driving the early commercialisation of 5G non-terrestrial networks, according to the latest GSA research. The new report, 5G Non-Terrestrial Networks and Satellite Connectivity, shows while a total of 38 operators in 29 countries and territories are planning satellite services, satellite broadband services for rural and enterprise use cases accounts are being planned, evaluated and tested in 27 of these markets. Of these, by the end of March 2023, three markets had launched services, four more are currently evaluating, testing or trialling them and 20 are currently in the planning stages.
