The goal of 5G wireless technology is to provide more users with faster multi-Gbps peak data speeds, extremely low latency, increased reliability, massive network capacity, and a more consistent user experience.

Moreover, Twitch and other streaming platforms have attracted viewers by streaming esports and gaming. Esports tournaments have captivated athletes and celebrities, as well as a large audience. Furthermore, esports and gaming make it simple to attract the attention of enthusiastic and young viewers who are difficult to reach via traditional media channels. Many brands have invested in esports events in sponsorships and advertising due to their ability to capture the attention of a young and enthusiastic audience.

Free-to-play Gaming Business Model supports Market Expansion

It has been determined that the free-to-play gaming business model is successful, with significant in-game microtransactions fueling the companies' revenue and subsequently supporting the industry's expansion.
