Six years after the advent of Long Term Evolution (LTE), it is helpful to look back at the truly transformational effect it has had on people’s lives around the world. One can argue that the arrival of LTE has had a larger impact than any other single technology to further both developed and emerging economies, as its benefits extend to all types of end users. With increased smartphone adoption and access to data through LTE services, the mobile industry is now the world’s largest innovation engine. Billions of new users have gained access to information through the Internet, which has driven more new economic opportunities than could have ever been imagined. Regardless of geography, socioeconomic class, education level or ethnicity, the fruits of access are evident across the globe. Today, approximately 4.8 billion people worldwide subscribe to a mobile service – almost two-thirds of the world’s population – with that number expected to reach 5.6 billion unique subscribers by 2020.

Three people wear medical face masks, worry visible in their eyes. Next to those two images is one more that reads simply "5G" — a reference to the fifth-generation of wireless networking technology. The post was flagged as part of Facebook’s efforts to combat false news and misinformation on its News Feed.
