Wired Telecommunications Carriers in the US
The Wired Telecommunications Carriers industry offers local and long-distance voice services using the public switched telephone network, along with wholesale access to networks for use by other companies to provide voice communication services to customers. Although the Wired Telecommunications Carriers industry was once the principal provider of voice communication services, numerous substitutes have taken its place. Shifts in consumer preferences away from wired telephony to newer technologies are expected to decrease industry revenue over the five years to 2018. Major operators are expected to continue focusing on and expanding services such as high-speed internet at the expense of copper wired service and infrastructure. Over the five years to 2023, IBISWorld estimates that industry revenue will continue declining.
