U.S. Consumer Landline Voice Services Forecast, 2018-2022

U.S. Consumer Landline Voice Services Forecast, 2018-2022

This IDC study forecasts the market for consumer wireline voice communications in the United States over a five-year period ending in 2022. This study provides subscriber and revenue forecasts for landline voice services. It also examines key trends impacting the consumer voice market including wireline displacement and new, disruptive OTT VoIP services."Traditional landline consumer voice services continue to shrink as consumers replace their home phone with wireless phones and OTT VoIP services such as magicJack, Skype, and Ooma. The telcos continue to post significant landline voice losses, and for the first time ever, most cable operators have posted negative new subscriber additions. But IDC forecasts that more than 62 million U.S. consumers still had a landline home phone at the end of 2017, suggesting that the landline displacement phenomenon has softened slightly as the majority of consumers likely to displace their landline phone have already done so." — Amy Lind, research manager, United States Consumer Multiplay and Broadband Services
