5G Coverage Is Years Away From General Availability

In Vertiv’s 5G report, the company asked 105 major telecommunications providers where they stood in terms of their 5G deployment timeline. Approximately 68 percent of respondents said they do not expect to be providing 100 percent 5G coverage until beyond 2028, with 57 percent of telecoms expecting to reach 50 percent 5G coverage between 2023 and 2025.

“It’s very clear that they’ve spent a lot of resources and effort to get their sites ready for 5G. When you talk to a Verizon or AT&T, they’re very much prepared to turn any one of these technologies on because 5G is a combination of different technologies that have nothing to do with 5G,” said Olsen. “What we heard is that really not until another three years and beyond is when we’re going to start to see 5G really having proliferated out.”
