1. Executive summary

2. Worldwide trends

  • Worldwide: the increase in fixed broadband revenue will be driven by increasing next-generation access (NGA) take-up

3. Regional trends

  • The continued decline in the number of fixed voice connections means that, in 2019, it will be fewer than total fixed broadband connections for the first time
  • Fixed revenue will grow during the forecast period despite a large decline in voice revenue, mainly due to growth in the number of NGA connections
  • Fixed broadband ASPU will increase between 2018 and 2024 due to a lack of competition and because consumers are willing to pay more for faster services
  • Fixed broadband will be the main driver of revenue growth in the fixed segment thanks to growth in both ARPU and household penetration

4. Country-level trends

  • Canada: the total service revenue will continue to grow, driven by a lack of competition in the fixed broadband market
  • USA: fixed broadband ASPU is forecast to grow between 2018 and 2024, mostly because of the low level of competition in the market
