North America Fixed Services Trends and Forecasts Report 2018 -

The "Fixed Services in North America: Trends and Forecasts 2017-2022" report has been added to's offering.

Fixed Broadband Will Grow Rapidly, But Deteriorating Legacy Services in Both B2C and B2B will Drive down the Total Fixed Revenue from 2020

Operators in North America benefit from regional monopolies/oligopolies, where having two options for high-speed broadband access is often considered a luxury. This allows operators to raise prices and will lead to a continued growth in broadband revenue, but a strong decline in fixed voice and a saturated enterprise segment will limit overall fixed revenue growth.
