Snapshot Webinar Series

What is the status of LTE-5G fixed wireless access services globally and how operators are using FWA to help close the digital divide?
The promotion of LTE and 5G networks as a mainstream mechanism for the delivery of broadband services to homes and businesses is now established, with lots of services available from operators, supported by a wide range of devices from many vendors.
As technology has improved, operators have been turning to mobile networks to deliver residential and business broadband services. They are using LTE, LTE-Advanced and 5G networks to deliver services in locations that are poorly served, or not served at all, by fixed-line broadband technologies based on copper, coax or fibre. Some are also offering mobile-based services as an alternative to fixed-line broadband technologies.
FWA services are being offered as an alternative or complement to fixed broadband; the nature of the message is dependent on whether an operator already owns a large fixed broadband network it wishes to continue to sell.
In this webinar, the GSA research team will share the latest data on the status of FWA services globally and examine how operators are using FWA to help close the digital divide.
