By 2025, 5G will account for 20 percent of global connections, with take-up particularly strong across developed Asia, North America and Europe, according to a report released Tuesday by the GSM Association (GSMA) and GTI, a global TD-LTE and 5G cooperation platform initiated by China Mobile.

To support this growth, operators are expected to invest around 1.1 trillion U.S. dollars worldwide over the next five years in mobile capex, roughly 80 percent of which will be in 5G networks, said the report.
