The US telecoms industry is a vast and fast-moving sector that is undergoing significant changes. Investments are increasingly focused on improving mobile connectivity and devices, the internet, and numerous applications such as video-streaming, financial services technology and, most recently, artificial intelligence (AI).

Mobile subscriptions are forecast to grow at an annual average rate of 3.4% over 2019-23. Fixed-line subscriptions will continue to shrink at an annual average rate of 6.2%, in line with the trend in most developed countries. The number of internet users will grow at an annual average rate of 2.7% during the forecast period.

The trend towards "cord-cutting" is accelerating as consumers embrace internet and wireless streaming in place of pay-TV, cable TV and landline services. About one-third of American adults had abandoned cable and satellite TV services by the end of 2018, according to estimates by eMarketer, a market research firm.
