U.S. Consumer Communications Services Market Shares, 1Q17: Spotlight on Mobile

This IDC study provides a high-level view of quarterly market metrics including subscribers and revenue for consumer landline voice, wireless, fixed broadband, and video services for the leading U.S. communications service providers (CSPs) in each segment. More details on landline voice, fixed broadband, video, and wireless subscribers and revenue can be accessed through IDC's United States Consumer Multiplay and Broadband Services, Multiscreen Video, and Mobile Operator Services research programs."While consumer subscriptions continued to grow in the first quarter, business subscribership and overall subscriptions decreased marginally as the overall subscriber base settled back into preholiday quarter levels," says Brian Haven, senior research analyst, Consumer Mobility. "Subscriber growth increased year over year, but revenue continued to be negatively impacted by compressed profit margins across the board, especially in the consumer market where unlimited data plans have reemerged as table stakes for service providers."
