Wires crossed: The industry struggles to remain relevant against competing technologies

Wired Telecommunications Carriers in the US

The Wired Telecommunications Carriers industry's performance will continue to suffer over the next five years as consumers adopt substitute technologies. In particular, VoIP and wireless technologies will continue to trump wired sales, causing industry revenue to drop. Firms will likely opt to continue focusing and expanding on more in-demand services like high-speed internet and faster, more extensive wireless coverage to gain a competitive edge.

This industry provides local and long distance voice communication services using the public switched telephone network (PSTN). Industry operators also generate revenue by providing internet access and video services and by wholesaling access to their networks for a variety of purposes. This industry excludes operators that solely resell telecommunications services (IBISWorld report 51791a).

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
