Over the past five years, the Wireless Telecommunications Carriers industry benefited from the rapid development of mobile devices, and the proliferation of smartphones. Over the past five years, the industry has been defined by its transition from primarily providing voice services, to focusing on providing data services. Technological change, namely, the transition to fourth-generation (4G) wireless data services and the long-term evolution (LTE) standard, is transforming this industry into one that primarily delivers broadband connectivity. Rising levels of per capita disposable income, and well as the increased use of online serves, have helped industry revenue expand over the five years to 2017. Over the next five years, revenue is expected to rise further, driven by an expansion in the number of mobile devices using data services and the increasing average revenue per user. Furthermore, the industry will be characterized by a greater level of competition among carriers for wireless spectrum, an already scarce resource.
