Research and Markets: Canada - Wireless Communications - Insights, Statistics and Forecasts
(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Dublin - Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/a0f8bc4c/canada_wireless) has announced the addition of the "Canada - Wireless Communications - Insights, Statistics and Forecasts" report to their offering.
The Canadian wireless industry has witnessed relatively strong subscriber growth since the country began to emerge from economic recession in late 2009. Although wireless penetration remains low by OECD standards, the emergence of new entrants in recent years, as well as the proliferation of cheaper voice and data plans, is stimulating multiple-SIM card use. The continuing decline in voice revenues per subscriber is generally offset by data revenues which averaged about 45% growth in 2011.
Data revenues will become even more important in coming years in light of upgrades to HSPA networks and the rapid emergence of 4G LTE platforms: network operators plan to extend their LTE offers to at least half of the population by the end of 2012, while a number of smaller regional players are also active in the market. The Advanced Wireless Services auction of 2008 overhauled Canada's wireless market providing a number of new entrants. With the exception of Shaw Communications, which recently opted to pursue a WiFi strategy, all have become players contributing to market competition.
This report provides an overview and analysis of the Canadian wireless market and the major operators, together with key statistics and select forecasts.
Company data to end-2011; regulator's June 2011 market data update; market developments into 2012.
