The massive resources required to deploy the 5G network necessitate a payback period for those financing it to recover their investment in a way that will sufficiently motivate the investment to be made in the first place.

This is a very high-stakes game of risk management, which is exceedingly dependent on end-users and network constituents being able to fully realize the potential of the marketed prospects (the “promise”) of the 5G network. The ability to recoup that investment can depend on a number of different scenarios, use cases, and environmental factors. This may be driven by subscriptions and a minimization of bandwidth costs (in terms of acquisition and utilization).
