5G FWA: more of a challenge than a complement to fixed broadband, AnalysysMason Jun 2019
"Operators tend to think about 5G fixed–wireless access (FWA) in one of two ways:

as a complementary technology, useful only where fibre or cable is uneconomical
as a challenger technology, good enough to exploit deficiencies in existing fixed broadband supply and pricing."

"In neither case is anyone really talking about 5G fully replacing the fixed networks: it is more a matter of degree. Our study suggests that the market opportunity is for about 20–30% of broadband connections in developed economies by 2023, higher in emerging ones. That is an addressable market of 290 million static locations. We forecast that the challenger opportunity will be about twice as large as the complementary opportunity"

"I have argued elsewhere that the capacity angle to 5G tends to get overshadowed by – sometimes incompatible – longer-term thinking centred on new use cases and service-based slicing. The operators that emphasise this brave new world are usually the largest, with deep investment in FTTP or cable. Mobile-only operators often see it differently, and they see the potential immediate, more old-world, benefits of 5G as a capacity play."

5G gives Samsung an opportunity to break into radio access networks, Analysys Mason, Sep 2017
Samsung missed out on the 3G opportunity, together with some other network equipment providers (NEPs), such as Motorola and NEC. The company then tried to capture a reasonable share of the 4G RAN market, but was unable to do so, as it invested in the WiMAX standard rather than LTE.
Samsung has several decades of experience in the telecoms market, but the wireless infrastructure ecosystem is becoming increasingly complex, particularly for 5G.
