The 5G future

SUMMARY

This Deloitte report on Australia's mobile ecosystem and its impact on the economy and society explains that the mobile industry generates $65 billion of additional GDP by 2023.

This is a significant amount as it is larger than the contribution made by the agricultural sector in the country, the paper notes, and larger as well than the productivity impact of important reforms such as the National Competition Policy.

The research also examines the impact of the mobile ecosystem in the business world. 5G, for instance, can generate many new business opportunities, the paper notes. 5G networks will be the key infrastructure behind a series of emerging technologies, such as autonomous vehicles and augmented/ virtual reality.

However, companies do not have to be at the forefront of technology to take advantage of emerging technologies. Mobile payments and video conferencing are two inexpensive mobile solutions supported by 4G networks that help businesses and promote growth and efficiency.

At present, the mobile sector contributes $22.9 billion to value added to the Australian economy. Besides, the mobile industry also creates more than 116,000 jobs in Australia.

The report also takes a look at the attitudes and behaviors of Australians when it comes to mobile. The majority of people see mobile as a useful device to connect with other people. Nearly half of them say that it gives them freedom.

Besides, more than 80% surveyed say that their mobile phones make them feel safer, as they are accessible in case of an emergency. The report reveals that many Australians show concern about some of the safety risks posed by mobile phones, such as data security and distracted driving.
