The construction of 5G mobile networks will continue at a rapid pace in 2022. Statista, a researcher in the field of mobile telecommunications, has predicted that global 5G subscriptions will more than double next year and exceed one billion. In addition, Gartner predicts that this year in the world, the amount spent on 5G infrastructure will grow by 22% to more than $23 billion, which would be the highest amount on record.
In order to complete the massive technology rollout, it will take years for the project to be completed. There will be a wide range of associations between the development of 5G networks and the development of a variety of items within the global economy because of the overlap between these items, from automotive technology to video games and virtual reality (part of what is referred to as “the metaverse”).
