U.S. Fixed Wireless Access Subscription Forecast, 2020–2024

This IDC study covers the U.S. market for fixed wireless access (FWA) subscriptions."Fixed wireless access is an appealing use case for communication service providers, particularly for those focused on 5G deployment as its focus on base connectivity requires little in terms of supplementary technologies and can coexist on the same network as mobile 5G service," says Jason Leigh, research manager, Mobility and 5G. "While making FWA gains in traditionally underserved areas should be straightforward, urban and suburban markets with a large and generally long-term established base of wired broadband subscribers will require FWA vendors to craft a compelling value proposition in order to grow share in fixed broadband strongholds."
