The 5G Mobile report from Deloitte Access Economics commissioned by AMTA was released on 18 October and finds that:
- facilitation and roll out of 5th generation mobile telecommunications (5G) is expected to further drive Australia’s digital economy and add to the already significant (and growing) $34 billion in long-term productivity benefits from mobile.
- annual network spend from mobile providers would reach up to $5.7 billion and likely to grow in FY2017-18.
- examples of sectors and industries that will benefit from 5G such as manufacturing, energy and utilities, automotive and transport, financial services, health, education and media / entertainment
- the expansion of products and applications expected to accelerate under 5G – for both large industry, small to medium enterprises and consumers – based on new opportunities arising from applications such as artificial intelligence, robotics, drones, Internet of Things, self-driving cars, plus virtual and augmented reality.
