This IDC study updates IDC Canada's annual forecast of the Canadian wireless communications services market."Wireless service providers continue to face the twin challenge of coping with the fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic and investing in the commercial rollout of next-generation 5G wireless networks," says Lawrence Surtees, study author, vice president of Communications Research, and principal analyst at IDC Canada. "Digital transformation of Canadian enterprises enabled by 5G holds the key to potential growth of wireless enterprise revenue from new applications and use cases. However, 5G wireless won't be an immediate panacea and produce new revenue streams for Canadian wireless operators until late in the forecast period because true standalone 5G service revenue streams and sophisticated use cases await the allocation of millimeter wave frequencies," Surtees said.
