A new GSMA study has highlighted North America as one of the most advanced mobile regions in the world – a result of significant operator investments in 5G.

These investments are increasingly being focused on building-out 5G coverage across the region, enabling a range of new services for consumers and enterprise. “Our new study highlights how the North America region is vying for global 5G leadership with pioneering mobile markets such as China, Japan and South Korea,” said Mats Granryd, Director General of the GSMA. “Investments in next-generation networks and services by operators has helped create an industry that is now worth a
