67 Million Connected Car Subscriptions by 2025
By 2025, 67 million automotive 5G vehicle subscriptions will be active, according to ABI Research. That largely explains Verizon Wireless and AT&T Mobility interest in the connected car market.
About three million of those accounts will be low latency connections mainly deployed in autonomous and driverless cars.
So the connected car might be an early “killer app” for 5G networks, enabling broadband multimedia streaming, cloud services for vehicle lifecycle management, the capturing and uploading of huge volumes of sensor data, and vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication.ABI Research suggests that 5G’s most promising capability for automotive will be its low latency, which could be as low as one millisecond.
