announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:
Broadband and 4G networks spearhead telecommunication market developments Buddecomm's latest USA Annual Publication, '2010/11 Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband in the USA', details the fixed-line, mobile and broadband markets in the USA. The publication also examines Internet trends and the emergence of new telecommunication services such as VoIP and IPTV. The report also profiles developments in the broader digital economy, including smart energy grids and the nascent e-health, e-government and e-education sectors.
US mobile subscriber numbers increased to over 300 million by early 2011. Although penetration levels are reaching saturation, mobile data revenues increased by around 23% year-over-year to December 2010 and are expected to continue to grow at very high rates between 2010 and 2015. Increases in data ARPU in particular are largely offsetting the ongoing decline in ARPU for voice services.
In early 2011 the US was still trailing its OECD counterparts in terms of broadband penetration, speed and affordability. Nevertheless, the market is currently witnessing significant investment activity in FttH deployments, DOCSIS 3.0 upgrades, mobile broadband network rollout and municipal wireless broadband activity. Despite the growing developments in FttH, WiMAX and 3G networks, broadband service in most regions is still generally limited to one DSL and one cable operator. Strong subscriber and revenue growth rates during 2010 have confirmed VoIP's position as a widely used telecommunications service in the US. Read more>
