Fixed wireless access (FWA) is gaining popularity as an option for broadband connection to the global network. If by the end of 2020 68% of households in the world, excluding China, did not have access to fixed broadband, then by 2030 this figure will decrease to 54%. With an average annual growth rate of 23.68%, by 2030 the number of FWA subscribers will reach 473 million. Their share will be 36% of the total number of fixed broadband users. Such a forecast is given by experts of the analytical company Counterpoint Research, specifying that both 4G and 5G connections are included in the FWA.

Two out of three fixed broadband users in the regions now use VDSL and cable TV channels. However, according to analysts, around 2024-2025, they will begin to demand speeds above 100 Mbps, which these technologies are not able to provide. So by 2030, they will remain in only 3% of households in the world, as operators will focus on the introduction of fiber optic lines and FWA in the coming years. FWA is favored by the fact that it is inexpedient to connect the “last mile” with fiber in areas with low economic density of population.
