Mobile Connectivity and its Mighty Effect on Global Economic Growth

I always look forward to reading Ericsson’s Mobility Report each time it’s updated. The data in the most recent report inspired me to write about mobile connectivity and its effect on global economic growth once again.

By the end of 2025, we expect 5G to have 2.6 billion subscriptions covering up to 65 percent of the world’s population and generating 45 percent of the world’s total mobile data traffic, making it the fastest developing mobile communication technology to have ever been rolled out on a global scale.

This is all great info, but to me, the most exciting data in Ericsson’s Mobility Report is not about 5G. It’s about mobile connectivity, and I’d like to talk about it in the context of the digital divide.
