The rise of 5G technology has been a prominent topic in Germany over the past few months, but how much of the population have actually made use of it? A recent survey conducted by Innofact and Verivox attempted to answer this question, and revealed some illuminating findings about 5G usage in Germany. According to the survey, 40% of people in Germany have used the 5G network at least once; 49% has never used it and 10% remain uncertain. 85% of Germany is covered by 5G networks, with the highest coverage found in Berlin, Hamburg, and Bremen. The urban-rural divide when it comes to 5G usage is not significantly high either; 20% of rural communities and 25% of large cities have already used the network. In terms of demographics, those aged between 30 and 70 tend to make more use of 5G than adults over 70 (29%), but men are shown to make more use of the network compared to women (27%). At 500 euros as entry-level cost for a 5G smartphone, affordability could be one factor potentially driving up its widespread usage across different age groups.
What makes this data even more interesting is that these percentages can increase still further due to increasing awareness around 5G’s massive potentials – such as faster speeds than ever before seen on mobile devices along with lower latency – among members of the public who are not yet sure whether they should try out this new technology or not. As more people become aware of all that they can gain from using this cutting-edge technology, current usage rates may only continue rising in the near future within German borders. 5G’s wide availability alongside its great potentials makes it an attractive option for tech-savvy users. Although there are some valid concerns being raised about its security levels from time to time, positive user experience reports along with strong recommendations from experts indicate that it is here to stay for good – at least for now!
In the midst of global pandemics and economic downturns, 5G technology promises to help Germany grow into a more connected and automated society. In order to make sure that this endeavour is successful, it is important to make sure that awareness about the benefits of 5G continues to spread. It might do well for telecom companies in Germany to invest in more campaigns that highlight the advantages of 5G, so that more users are encouraged to make use of it. This can help Germany unlock the full potential of this cutting-edge technology and gain a larger foothold in the industry – something that could prove beneficial for its economy in the long run.
