Chit Chat: A Look at Telecoms Trends in 2016


2015 has been a good year for the global telecoms industry despite operators struggling to expand their revenues. The industry is growing thanks to big data management, cloud computing, mobile broadband, OTT and M2M services along with fixed broadband. The expected trends for 2016 are:


  • Big data management, cloud computing, mobile broadband, OTT and M2M services will continue to propel the industry.
  • Wearable technology will become more advanced and focus will be turned towards 5G
  • Developing areas will grow the most when it comes to mobile penetration through 2016-2020
  • 4G, LTE and 3G will expand in an effort to meet customer demand and mobile data is expected to double each year for the next few years
  • 5G will grow and the development is already underway but no standards are in place as yet. Early tests will soon provide information on what can be expected from 5G technology
  • 5G is not expected to be made available until at least 2020 and not deployed fully until closer to 2030
  • Shared opportunities are expected to grow in wider communities thanks to smartphones, apps, location based technology and so on
  • More countries will have access to fixed broadband in 2016
  • Cloud computing will continue to grow with the cloud solutions being adopted by more consumers, enterprises and the government
