The rise of next-generation connectivity

Connectivity is the lifeblood of digital transformation. Without fast, reliable networks, data can’t be transmitted — preventing transactions, communications and commerce itself. But once in a while, a new breakthrough in connectivity changes the game, unleashing new innovations in business and disrupting the status quo. We may be on the brink of such a breakthrough right now.

This whitepaper, based on a survey conducted by The Economist Intelligence Unit and sponsored by Sprint, uncovers a race that’s already underway in the U.S. It’s a race to secure business opportunities resulting from technologies enabled by next-generation connectivity. Indeed, 77 percent of respondents say such use cases will completely change customer expectations of what their company is capable of.
