In 2020 i.e. eight years from now, for the data we used, we might be paying just $1 per day for that – isn’t it is interesting – that’s what Nokia Siemens Networks CTO Hossein Moiin believe, according to whom, the mobile operators will need to play an “important” transformative role to pass cost savings down to customers. In an interview with Global Telecoms Business, Moiin also touches on a post-4G future. “We have a beyond-4G programme,” he says, but any 5G networks will involve another generation of radio technology. “We will have to do it all again. It’s a lot of work. It gets harder and harder,” he adds. With mobile connections currently at more than six billion worldwide, and the GSMA predicting the figure will double in the next ten years, the less expensive data will arrive as operators increase the capacity of their networks by 1,000 times, ready for 2020, Moiin says.
