Published: June 5, 2019 Content info: 12 Slides

"In order for operators to be successful with 5G, their offers will have to combine attractive tariffs with the right devices, value-added services and content, and be supported by a widely available network."

Operators around the world are under pressure to invest in 5G, but they are unsure if they will be able to obtain a return on their investment. The majority of operators are likely to launch 5G networks in the next few years, so they should therefore consider which commercial and technology strategies to implement as soon as possible.

This report provides:

  • an overview of the strategies used by KT, LGU+ and SK Telecom for the launch of 5G
  • an analysis of the implications for other operators worldwide including a discussion of 5G go-to-market strategies, plans and pricing, devices and their financing, content and value-added services bundling and network and technology strategies.
