Wired Telecommunications Carriers in Canada - Industry Market Research Report

Wired Telecommunications Carriers in Canada

Over the past decade, rapid technological advancements have changed the way humans interact, pushing the Wired Telecommunications Carriers industry in Canada to the sidelines of communication. External competition from the domestic Wireless Telecommunications Carriers industry (see IBISWorld report 51721CA) and Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) software has been eating away at sales from the industry's traditional source of revenue, which is local and long-distance telephony services. Companies offering VoIP have been quickly gnawing away at revenue by offering lower-priced telephone service. Since calls using the internet do not have long-distance surcharges, revenue from the industry's long-distance telephony services has suffered the most. Industry operators will likely continue integrating systems to make up for losses from telephony. Ultimately, as industry operators spread their fixed costs across a declining number of subscribers and compete with less-costly substitute services, revenue and profit margins are expected to continue declining steadily.

This industry provides local and long-distance telephony services. Operators also generate revenue by wholesaling access to their networks for many purposes.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
