USA Telecoms Landscape Analysed by BuddeComm in New Market Research Report Published at

21 Mar 2016 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – The USA still loses ground to its OECD counterparts with respect to broadband penetration, affordability and speed. Despite all this, the market is presently seeing increased investment activity in fibre deployments, HFC network upgrades with DOCSIS 3.1 technology, and wireless broadband networks. Much of the investment in fibre is being made by a great number of smaller players and municipal entities rather than the top 2 telecommunication companies, AT&T and Verizon, which are focusing on a hybrid fibre/copper network and restricting further upgrades beyond what has already been accomplished. These operators have focused their wireless attention in the recent past, which has implied that cablecos have made much progress in adding new broadband customers recently.

Broadband services in the majority of regions still lack efficient competition, with an effective duopoly operating across many areas of the USA. Municipalities’ activity, often aimed at breaking the stranglehold and introducing innovation and competition, keeps on being back-strapped by lobbying pressure from the leading telecommunication firms. Nevertheless, the National Broadband Plan, released by the FCC, envisages a bigger role for public fibre-to-the-premises (FttP) networks in chase of its goals, and in the activities of municipal networks will form a huge part of the patch-work fibre deployments in the USA in the offing.

There is suring recognition of the significance of a trans-sector approach to broadband networks, encompassing the healthcare, energy and education sectors, with a view to fully enjoying the advantages of the emerging digital economy.

New report “USA - Telecoms, Mobile, Broadband and Digital Media - Statistics and Analyses” prepared by BuddeComm canvasses the telecoms sector in the USA. It reviews a number of aspects of the national telecoms market. The study gives details about the cable, Wi-Fi, DSL and WiMAX broadband sectors, presenting market analyses along with a set of pertinent statistical figures in general and on the dominant operators. The research report also examines the FttP market and pertinent fibre network deployments and developments. Furthermore, the report evaluates the country’s mobile market, comprising telcos’ operating and financial data through to Q4 2015 and an analysis of telcos’ strategies as customers keep on shifting from 2G to LTE and as 5G gets under way.
