LYSAKER, Norway—A new global survey of broadcasters has found 92% expect to adopt 5G technology over the next two years. The poll, carried out on behalf of Nevion, surveyed 225 broadcasters across Europe, Australia, China and North America with the aim of understanding how they envision using 5G and their perceptions of the technology. It found that over a third (39%) of respondents expect their organization will be ready to adopt 5G within a year, while a further 53% believe they will be able to do so within the following year. The survey also found 94% of broadcasters think that their country has the infrastructure ready to adopt 5G, but only 46% of broadcasters have tested 5G’s capabilities within their organization.
