5G in emerging markets: opportunities and constraints

Spire’s Senior Manager, Albertus Edy Rianto, discussed the addressable opportunities and the impact of Covid-19 in Developing Telecom’s latest report on 5G.

In Developing Telecom’s most recent report, Leveraging the Benefits of 5G in Emerging Markets, Edy shared his insights on the importance of 5G for digital innovation and business growth.

Partial introduction has become a preferred strategy to shift the mindset of the users and prepare them for the 5G era.
