According to the new industry figures after a decade of extreme growth, the mobile market slowed to a crawl last year and we found that the total number of connected devices rose just 1% to 400.2 million, the slowest rate of increase on record, while wireless service revenue slipped 5% to $179 billion, the second year in a row of decline, the industry trade group CTIA reported in its annual survey on Tuesday.
If we talk about that what is the average of mobile so therefore with around 326 million people living in the United States so the average is more than 1.2 devices for every man, woman, and child in the country. According to the Wall Street, it is growing concerned about the maturing outlook for the industry-leading carrier known as Verizon which has seen its company stock unchanged this year trailing the 4% gain in the S&P 500 Index, while second-ranked AT&T’s (T, -1.88%) shares have slid 13%. The industry is looking ahead to the next wave of even faster wireless transmission technology, known as 5G. It doesn’t care because the number of new devices has leveled off, data usage has continued to surge and wireless carriers are building out 5G networks that will increasingly come into play over the next three to five years, possibly bringing in additional revenue from new services like always-connected smart devices. The industry is moving to advance just like it is pressing to have federal rulemakers free up more airwaves and ease the way for the addition of thousands of smaller cell sites needed for 5G by preempting local and state regulations.
Wireless is on the height of a transformation to tomorrow’s 5G networks and the internet of things this all was known from the report,” Meredith Attwell Baker, president, and CEO of CTIA said in a statement. Key lobbying point has an important move so by making this Baker went on to say that the surge in data usage is “underscoring the need for continued efforts to modernize infrastructure rules and create a spectrum pipeline that ensures continued U.S. wireless leadership in the global race to 5G.” From 5 years ago there was just an increase of 7% and at the end of 2017, mobile carriers have deployed 323,448 cell site this all was said by the CTIA. As you all know that as 3G’s and 4G’s network travel, in the same way, 5G signals do not travel frequently, the industry may need as many as 800,000 sites to roll out 5G and it is visible that most will be much smaller than today’s cell tower according to the various radios strapped to tops of lamp poles and traffic lights, but some localities are pushing back concerned about ugly equipment installations and possible health hazards.
Three years early the wireless data traffic totaled nearly 16 trillion MB of information and 40 times what customers used in 2010 which was also said by the CTIA. The rise in data usage and a decline in revenue also be a part of the reason why T-Mobile (TMUS, -1.62%) and Sprint (S, -2.04%), the third and fourth-largest mobile carriers, are seeking to merge. Lower service revenue at Sprint, though not at T-Mobile, means less money to expand for 5G to meet the growing data demand. According to this the voice and texting activity industry-wide has also declined. so the data is as that all the customers talked on their phones for 2.2 trillion minutes and also slightly than in 2010 and sent around 1.8 trillion text messages, down from just 2.1 trillion in 2010.
