CCS Insight was mentioned in this article about mobile data.

According to CCS Insight forecasts, 5G will not see high uptake until 2022 by which time total subscribers will reach 17 million. By end-2025, more than half of all mobile connections in the UK will be on a 5G network.

CCS said in the report: "Yet eye-watering growth in mobile data consumption is far from guaranteed. CCS Insight recognises an alternative scenario in which operators limit demand, either through preference or necessity.

"Uncertainty remains over the much-delayed auction of 4G and 5G spectrum, originally slated for early 2016. And while operators grapple to make "more-for-more" a reality, they could be tempted to use price to temper demand. In our alternative scenario, data usage could remain as low as just 6 GB per month."
