5G Roaming Connections to Grow 900% Over Next 4 Years, Reaching 500m by 2027

Our latest 5G Roaming Strategies research has found that the total number of 5G roaming connections will increase from 53 million in 2023 to 526 million by 2027.

This substantial growth, worth 900% over the next four years, will require the development of new roaming tools that are able to autonomously identify roaming connections as 5G connectivity proliferates. The research identified AI-based real-time analytics and roaming fraud mitigation services as two critical solutions that will enable operators to protect their networks against an influx of data traffic from roaming subscribers.

The research predicts that amidst the growth of 5G roamers, these emerging traffic analytics and anti‑fraud solutions must enable the enhanced identification and authentication of roaming connections over 5G networks. However, given the increased complexity of 5G networks, it anticipates current roaming analytics services will be insufficient in monitoring 5G roaming connections, and the subsequent increase in mobile roaming data.
