U.S. Residential Landline Displacement 2015–2019 Forecast
This IDC study details the migration of consumers from landline voice to wireless-only households from 2015-2019. The study also examines the key trends affecting the growth of consumer landline displacement and analyzes the impact of displacement on telcos, cable operators, and mobile operators.
"The consumer cord-cutting phenomenon continues to expand as wireless services become more pervasive and consumer usage of mobile handsets and devices in the home expands," said Amy Lind, research manager, U.S. Consumer Multiplay Services. "Still, IDC believes that landline voice services will remain relevant for millions of consumers, particularly those that value the reliability and quality of service available with a landline connection."Please Note: Extended description available upon request.
