United States Telecom Operators Country Intelligence Report

United States Telecom Operators Country Intelligence Report


The telecom service revenue growth in the US over 2019-2024 will be driven by mobile data and fixed broadband revenues. Mobile data will be the largest revenue-contributing segment over 2019-2024 driven by rising smartphone subscriptions, increasing mobile data consumption, strengthening LTE networks, and the growing adoption of 5G services. Fixed broadband revenue will be driven by increased service adoption in the cable, fiber-optic and FWA segments, supported by operator investments in ultrafast fixed network infrastructure across the country. Pay-TV revenue will drop throughout the forecast period as a result of decline in DTH, cable, and IPTV subscriptions.
