The State of 5G in 2024

Introducing the GSMA Intelligence 5G Connectivity Index

The number of 5G connections surpassed 1.5 billion at the end of 2023, making it the fastest-growing mobile broadband technology to date. However, despite this progress, a new digital divide is starting to emerge between high-income and low- and middle-income countries. Furthermore, even in countries with 5G, the technology has not yet realised its full potential.

Against this backdrop, GSMA Intelligence has launched the 5G Connectivity Index to help enable increased coverage, adoption, usage and market development. The index provides a comprehensive assessment of 5G in 39 markets, offering insights for informed decision-making and investment by the mobile ecosystem and policymakers. This findings from the first edition of the index are presented in this report.
